Advantages of Simulating Thermal Behavior of Underbody Components

Understanding the thermal behavior of underbody components can help an engineer balance the priorities and tightening restrictions for vehicle design. The underbody of a vehicle experiences some of the most thermally dramatic scenarios for which there is no simple solution. By using a method that provides accurate thermal predictions, engineers can assess a variety of design options early in the product development cycle. These predictions will provide a better understanding of the thermal behavior the vehicle will undergo under both extreme and common scenarios....

Introducing CoTherm: A Better, Faster, More Robust CAE Coupling Solution

You’re familiar with the expression, “You can have it fast, you can have it done well, or you can have it cheap…pick two.”? Well, thanks to a new tool currently in beta (with an early spring release date), CAE engineers will soon be able to choose all three. In the past, we’ve examined why software...

Why Using Simulation to Front Load Design Decisions Gives You the Competitive Advantage

The concept of “front loading” is not entirely new to automotive manufacturers, who are becoming increasingly adept at eliminating cost, materials, time and waste from the design process. The industry is at the early-adoption stage of manufacturers (in automotive and other sectors) embracing new,...
