    Multiphysics Process for eDrive Engineering

    Developing a high performance eDrive to propel modern electric vehicles is an inherently multiphysics and multidisciplinary problem; involving multiple engineers with various backgrounds working on one design to achieve peak performance. Digital continuity allows the physical behavior of the final product to be virtually evaluated and optimized across multiple domains. These aspects shall be demonstrated within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform by the example of an electric drive development cycle. The engineering typically starts from high-level requirements, which are going to be refined by running 1D simulation models. This information will then be used to create the detailed geometry, which is the basis for multiphysics simulation. Associativity between CAD and CAE and the orchestration of simulation process will help to easily run loops to optimize the geometry of this complex system until the detailed requirements are validated successfully. When deployed with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, users innovate and accomplish more because they save time on model preparation and results tracking. This allows them to find and focus on the design changes that matter.

    Vibro-Acoustics: Product & Application Update

    Noise and vibration are becoming increasingly important in virtually every industry.  Typical applications include: designing for interior noise in cars, aircraft, trains, ships, cabs and buildings; designing for exterior noise in wind turbines, Urban Air Mobility, tires and pass-by noise; designing for dynamic environments and shock in spacecraft and launch vehicles; designing for stealth in ships, submarines and UAVs; designing for sound quality and speech intelligibility in mobile phones, loudspeakers and public address systems.  In many of these applications it is important to consider noise and vibration across the entire audible frequency range.  This requires the use of a combination of simulation methods including both low frequency mesh based methods and mid/high frequency statistical wave based methods.  SIMULIA’s vibro-acoustic simulation software ‘wave6’ includes the full spectrum of vibro-acoustic analysis methods in order to efficiently simulate noise and vibration across a broad frequency range.  This presentation will provide an overview of wave6.  A number of new methods will be discussed along with recent application examples.

    PepsiCo Beverage Packaging Simulation Democratization

    Modeling and simulation have become a key element in PepsiCo beverage packaging development work. In the past four years, it has helped across-regional teams successfully de-risk projects early on, quick screening packaging design options, provide recommended process conditions that will help achieve performance targets, propose light-weighting solutions, reach sustainability, and productivity goals. A lot of brands have harvested great benefits from Modeling and Simulation, for example, Aquafina, Lipton, Mountain Dew, Pepsi, Propel, Pure leaf, Starbucks, Tropicana….

    To democratize routine beverage packaging simulation to engineers and even designers, our team has initiated this endeavor with the collaboration with Dassault Systems by utilizing the 3DExperience platform to develop a web-based Virtual Test Lab. The CAE experts will wrap all the complex modeling theories into an automatic and simplistic form, so that the end-users can then effortlessly plug and play the application, get the simulation results, and obtain first-hand insights about their packaging design directly. Such efforts will greatly reduce the packaging development time and cost. More importantly, it is one crucial component in PepsiCo's overall enterprise architecture and digitalization strategy.

    A Framework for Kinematic Evaluation of Knee Arthroplasty 

    Facility of near normal kinematic outcome is one of the critical aspects in knee arthroplasty concept evaluation, whether a brand-new knee arthroplasty is being designed, an existing design is being enhanced, or the surgical placement is being optimized. Kinematic comparisons between a new concept and either to a predicate or to healthy conditions are key measurements of kinematic performance. Based on physical testing and clinical measurements, a comprehensive virtual kinematic evaluation framework has been developed to measure kinematic performance for knee arthroplasty design concepts.

    Enabling Virtual Testing for Additively Manufactured Structures using Advanced ABAQUS Capabilities

    As additively manufactured structures become more commonplace across the industry, there is a need for generalized methods of strength prediction.  The wide variation in material properties, especially failure criteria, require custom developed material models that depend not just on the material but also on fabrication process parameters.

    To address the need for strength prediction, advanced features available in ABAQUS in the form of user material modeling have been successfully utilized at Boeing to predict static strength, impact strength and corresponding failure modes for additively manufactured parts.   Two case studies will be presented using this approach.   The first of these is for additively manufactured titanium where strength predictions and corresponding failure modes for various load cases and material processing parameters have been made which correlate excellently with corresponding structural tests.   In the second case study, a similar approach has been utilized for predicting the impact strength of polymer parts and correlated with subsequent physical testing.

    As additive manufacturing continues to expand across the industry, advanced features in ABAQUS such as the built-in versatile material modeling capability open the door to virtual testing.  This in turn is a key enabler of significant cost savings in the form of minimizing physical testing and providing valuable insight leading to an expansion of the product design space.

    Modeling and Experimental Characterization of Adhesive Curing Processes Summary of the Presentation

    Structural adhesives are widely used in many industries, including the automotive, aerospace, and electronics industries. To properly design bonded structures and products, the chemical shrinkage and residual stresses associated with the curing process of the adhesive must often be understood. In this presentation a finite element-based method for simulating curing processes is outlined. In this method a coupled thermal-structural analysis featuring user-defined subroutines is used to predict chemical conversion using the temperature-dependent reaction kinetics associated with the adhesive, and to calculate the temperature and conversion-dependent evolution of chemical shrinkage, thermal expansion, heat generation, and mechanical properties. The experimental methods required to characterize these dependencies will also be discussed, as well as the testing performed to validate the curing model. Finally, a native Abaqus implementation of the cure modeling procedure will be introduced.
