In our everyday lives, we are experiencing the impact of digital technology with increased connectivity facilitating the explosion of big data.  Simulation technologies are also developing rapidly. However, product design processes, established over decades, are often conservative and slow to evolve.  This availability of powerful simulation technology coupled with the disruptive nature of the electric vehicle powertrain presents new opportunities for companies to revisit the design / development process.

 

Showcasing New Simulation Technologies

The seminar will showcase a number of unique simulation technologies and processes which exploit the availability of the latest simulation software and computer hardware solutions.  These technologies can predict the performance of complex multi attribute or multi physics (e.g. NVH, crash, thermal management, CFD etc) behaviour products, significantly reducing development time.  In addition, optimisation technologies can be deployed to deliver outstanding performance and consequently product differentiation.

The winning companies will embrace simulation and embed the technology at the heart of their design / development processes to facilitate simulation driven design.  Attend the seminar to understand the predictive power of the technologies and the innovation that simulation can inject into electric vehicle platforms.

Summary & Close

Designing the Future of e-Mobility
Delivering Innovative Vehicles with Simulation-Driven Design Approach
C123
Lightweight Vehicle Architectures
Electrified vehicles still need to display the same levels of comfort, ride, handling, quality and safety drivers are used to. Altair helps customers engineer better vehicles every day, utilizing simulation and optimization technologies to deliver products with outstanding performance characteristics.
Electrification
Powertrain Electrification & Hybridization
The move towards hybrid and full electric powertrain systems provides manufacturers with business challenges and opportunities in equal measure. Powertrains must be highly efficient and lightweight while meeting new regulations and growing customer expectations. Altair can help you to capitalize on this global shift, by developing and deploying state-of-the-art multiphysics simulation solutions for every stage of the development process.
