Closure efforts are often one of our first impressions of a vehicle, but that is just the start of the complex and seemingly conflicting requirements for a vehicle system that has steadily increased in content while continuing to drop weight. A range of technologies are frequently employed to address the challenge, including linear, non-linear implicit and explicit FEA, multi-body dynamics (MBD) and mechatronics, computational fluid dynamics and optimization.
Global platforms now dominate the underpinnings of new nameplates, the Chrysler/Fiat C-Evo, Ford C1 MCA and GM Gamma to name a few (more…)

Multi-Objective Optimization in the Design Cycle
Design optimization seeks a design that minimizes the objective function while satisfying design constraints. Real-world design problems are usually characterized by the presence of many conflicting objectives. Therefore, it is natural to look at the engineering design problems as multi-objective optimization problems. For example, we may want to maximize range and payload mass while trying to minimize manufacturing costs for an airplane design.
Altair® HyperStudy® is solver-neutral study, design and optimization software that streamlines exploring and optimizing the performance and robustness of designs. HyperStudy is a tool of choice for the designer and engineer who are tasked with improving designs, running what-if scenarios, correlating test data, optimizing multidisciplinary design problems or assessing design reliability and robustness.
