Two University of Stuttgart racing teams recently reported exceptional results from employing HyperWorks tools to simulate vehicle design and reduce the weight of their cars prior to vehicle construction.
The impact of HyperWorks is evident in the victories earned by the Stuttgart teams. In 2011, the Rennteam was rated number one in the Formula Student world rankings and has won 10 single competitions since 2005.
The GreenTeam, with 37 teams participating in the electric category in 2011, placed second in Italy and currently holds third place in the overall worldwide rankings list for the electric competition.

Jianmin Guan- Senior Program Manager-Noise, Vibration & Harshness
Noise and vibration are important characteristics in modern life. For example, we experience noise and vibration every day when we drive to work, and they are important causes for component failures in airplanes and space vehicles. Therefore, it is important for us to understand how noise and vibration are transmitted and to find ways to reduce them.
Traditionally, noise and vibration problems are analyzed using the Modal Analysis approach. Vibration modes (or normal modes) are intrinsic ways a structure can sustain motion and carry energy. Each mode is typically associated with a (more…)
Applying Road Load Prediction for Automotive and Aerospace Durability Applications
FTire is the leading higher-frequency vehicle tire simulation model used in the automotive industry. FTire is designed for ride comfort simulations and road load prediction for durability applications, on road irregularities even with extremely short wave-lengths at high rolling speed. As both a structural mechanics and thermodynamics based model, FTire can be used to simulate complex belt dynamics, contact patch friction states, and temperature and tread wear dependent tire behavior. FTire is not limited to vehicle tires only, but can be used to simulate dynamics of aero tires. It can be used for investigations like wheel shimmy, extreme wheel spin-up during landing, landing gear loads from surface irregularities, and high vertical and lateral loads during taxiing and parking.

Program Manager – Durability
Product design in today’s environment requires careful attention to all aspects of the design, including such issues as sustainability, recyclability and durability of the product. Durability of ground vehicles can be particularly challenging because of the way the vehicle is used and the roads on which the vehicle is driven and the product design can change significantly during both the design phase and the product lifecycle. Testing the product is the most common way to verify durability, but testing is also expensive and time-consuming. Virtual durability testing methods in today’s computing environment offer rapid, repeatable predictions of the loads a vehicle will experience and the resulting life that the product will have when put into service.
