Formula Student: Suspension Optimization

In this project, a group of students from Formula Student optimized the attachment points of the rear suspension of the new version of their racing bolide using pSeven. The kinematics of the suspension directly depends on the attachment points of the suspension. And in turn, the cornering speed of the bolide depends on the kinematics.

Seminar "CAE - based Acoustic Analysis and Design" with Prof. Migeot

article imageNoise is an inevitable side effect of driving. More and more engineers from various departments are faced with NVH design responsibilities, although they sometimes lack a solid background in acoustics. In this 12-hour online learning course, divided into 6 sessions two hours each, the basic concepts of acoustics are introduced. Each concept is explained using real-world examples from automotive engineering. Prof. Jean-Louis Migeot is a veteran of acoustic simulation, founder and former CEO of Free Field Technologies, the original developer of Hexagon's Actran acoustic finite element solver.

An Overview About the Use of Dynamic Human Body Models in Vehicle Safety

article imageSignificant trends in the vehicle industry are autonomous driving, micro-mobility, electrification and the increased use of shared mobility solutions. These new mobility classes lead to a larger number of occupant positions, interiors and load directions. As safety systems interact with and protect occupants, it is essential to place the human, with its variability and vulnerability, at the center of the design and operation of these systems. Digital human body models (HBMs) can help meet these requirements and are therefore increasingly being integrated into the development of new vehicle models. The contribution provides an overview of current HBMs and their applications in vehicle safety in different driving modes.

Engaging Supercomputer Users to Optimize Workloads and Reduce Energy Waste

article imageA supercomputer is designed to perform high-speed calculations much faster than a regular computer. The insights generated help experts to answer advanced questions: Does this theoretical model agree with observations? Is this cooling device strong enough to protect the engine? Naturally, the operating cost of these very expensive facilities is monitored closely.
