Targeting Composite Wing Performance – Optimum Location of Laminate Boundaries

This paper investigates the application of newly available optimization functionality available in OptiStruct to provide design guidance to generate innovative laminate composite solutions. Due to the flexibility of laminate composites, it has great potential to exhibit displacement characteristics that could significantly increase the aerodynamic performance. Free element sizing technology is used to determine concept lay-up solutions. These solutions determine the laminate make-up, thickness and the various laminate boundaries of an aircraft wing covers under multiple loading conditions which meet the required displacement targets whilst also minimising mass. These preliminary studies demonstrate that the technology can successfully achieve displacement targets for multiple load cases. Each analysis study can be completed within minutes and consequently can be utilised as a valuable concept design tool.

Characterization of Sensorless Motor Control Technology Using VisSim

“A key benefit to using VisSim for this project is its code generation capability and how quickly and fast it works.

This removes the need to create intermediate FE models of the restraint system, which reduces development time and provides higher confidence in simulation results.

Safety Comes First – Development of a Maxi-Cosi Child Seat Using a CAE-Driven Design Process

When developing a new child seat, safety is paramount. Dorel Juvenile, market leader in child safety in cars, was confronted with the task to develop a new child seat - the Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl. To investigate and analyze the best feasible design, considering the occurring forces during an accident, Dorel Juvenile turned to Code Product Solutions, an engineering service provider that supports their customers in the development and optimization of products, using computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools. Within the development process, Code Product Solutions engineers employed the Altair HyperWorks CAE suite utilizing RADIOSS® for crash simulation, OptiStruct® for the layout of highly loaded plastic parts that comprise the reclining system, HyperMesh® for pre-processing tasks, and HyperCrash® and HyperView® during post-processing.

FIAT

FIAT chose Altair ProductDesign as a partner to perform a pilot project to investigate squeak and rattle. The project focused on studying issues on the FIAT UNO, a vehicle made exclusively for the South American market. Altair ProductDesign suggested that FIAT implement Altair’s ‘Squeak & Rattle Director’ (SNRD), a comprehensive set of services and software automations that rapidly identify and analyze design alternatives to eliminate the root causes of squeak and rattle in assemblies. With customization from the Altair ProductDesign team, the solution provides a semi-automated approach to determine relative component displacements in the time domain that can lead to undesired noise. A dedicated four day workshop facilitated a fast ramp-up of the NVH team’s knowledge of the SNRD and helped Altair to identify FIAT’s specific design process that the solution could be tailored to.

Evolutionary Design in Chassis Technology

This paper details the use of the Thyssenkrupp eDICT process for the design of sheet metal chassis components. eDICT (evolutionary design in chassis technology) is an innovative structured process flow for the design of optimal structures. eDICT uses the optimisation capability of Optistruct with a set of custom tools to guide and translate a design into a production feasible sheet metal solution. Fundamentally it reverses the usual design loop of CAD first then CAE assessment. The function is used to determine the design and the form follows. On recent projects eDICT has produced 25% mass reductions compared to the current series design. eDICT is also able to reduce development times and resource with an efficient solution production right from the outset.
