Simulation Validation Through the Prism of Optical Measurements - How to Effectively Leverage Large Amounts of Test Data

June 30 | 10:00 am EDT | Duration: 30 minutes


In order to develop mechanical products faster and reduce development costs, industries rely more on and more on simulations, following the Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) strategy. But to build more confidence in more refined simulation models, these models have to be backed up by a lot more real-world data, in order to avoid large design margins.  

This webinar is aimed at technical managers who think model validation should not inherently be a source of uncertainties and risks in the design process, and want to achieve costs and development time reduction by performing only the most relevant tests; engineers who need to build simulation credibility without spending most of their time processing strain gauge data and performing trial-and-error simulations.

Simplify Your 3d Models - Collaborative Engineering From Design to CAE and Downstream Processes

July 7, 2021 | 10:00 am EDT | Duration: 30 minutes


Laminate composites are often the answer to ever increasing lightweighting demands. While significant advances were made regarding mechanical strength, there remain a number of challenges regarding their vibro-acoustic properties. Composites are indeed lighter and stiffer, which as a result, tends to decrease their sound insulation properties at critical audible frequencies. One thus needs a thorough design of the structure to avoid acoustic comfort failure. During this webinar, a unique approach to predict the vibro-acoustic response of laminate composites will be presented. Supported by short computational times and high fidelity predictions, this new feature of AlphaCell enables to optimize the design at an early stage of the project. In addition to accurate predictions, this model further enables to reduce the computational cost in FE analyzes by providing material cards with condensed properties.

Combining First Principles, Simulation and Data Analysis

July 14, 2021 | 10:00 am EDT | Duration: 30 minutes


One of the most tempting things with simulation and data analysis is to press a button and have the answer delivered to you. Unfortunately, this misses the whole point. To truly use simulation and data analytics properly you have to understand the first principles and then combine this with both simulation and data to find the answer you are looking for. In this webinar we are going to show you hands on examples of how you can combine all three in both vehicle modelling and Electric Vehicles.

Validating Virtual Proving Ground Loads

August 4, 2021 | 10:00 am EDT | Duration: 30 minutes


In the automotive industry one of the big challenges is designing the vehicles to withstand the variability in the duty cycle. To help speeded up the design process and reduce cost, automotive OEMs are relying more and more on simulation. This webinar will explain how one OEM is relying more on their virtual proving ground during the design process. The goal is for them to reduce the amount of physical prototyping and rely on simulations and their virtual proving ground to obtain the loads for durability. To achieve this requires the OEM to have confidence that their simulation model provides the correct loads for durability. The model validation result provides the confidence number when comparing the loads obtained from the simulation to the loads measured from the actual proving ground.
