Watch the webinar to learn how integrated modeling and simulation workflows accelerate crashworthiness simulation.
The automotive industry faces dramatic changes with electric vehicles in terms of design, business paradigm, and shortening the product cycle.
A flawless process from product planning to product manufacturing can reduce the cost and time of the production. Upfront simulation supports the idea by providing the simulation technique as early as the concept design phase to reduce or eliminate possible late design changes. The automotive structure needs simulation of the three performance attributes: crashworthiness, NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness), and durability.
There are hurdles in applying the FE simulations of the three attributes at the early concept design. FE models require complete geometry for meshing, but the concept design may not have the detailed geometry and the design may frequently change. The architecture design in the concept phase is the most effective solution for optimal crashworthiness performance. However, the crashworthiness simulation takes a significantly longer time than the other two. Hence, we need a workflow that provides flexible modeling and faster performance, which are essential to support the frequently changing concept designs.
To address this, we have developed conceptual structure optimization workflow, which increases the speed of crashworthiness simulation by leveraging 1D STICK models, SFE-CONCEPT parametrized models and design of experiments techniques. These techniques speed up and fully explore design space and the development of crash efficient architecture during the concept design phase.
