Guerrilla Gravity
For pioneering a new material application and technology without a road map, Guerrilla Gravity used Altair OptiStruct in the early design design phase. The result was the development of lightweight, high-performance bikes, that are 300% more impact resistant than other frames on the market that use traditional carbon fiber materials, at significant cost savings and shortened timelines.

E-motor Design using Multiphysics Optimization
Today, an e-motor cannot be developed just by looking at the motor as an isolated unit; tight requirements concerning the integration into both the complete electric or hybrid drivetrain system and perceived quality must be met. Multi-disciplinary and multiphysics optimization methodologies make it possible to design an e-motor for multiple, completely different design requirements simultaneously, thus avoiding a serial development strategy, where a larger number of design iterations are necessary to fulfill all requirements and unfavorable design compromises need to be accepted.



The project described in this paper is focused on multiphysics design of an e-motor for Porsche AG. Altair’s simulation-driven approach supports the development of e-motors using a series of optimization intensive phases building on each other. This technical paper offers insights on how the advanced drivetrain development team at Porsche AG, together with Altair, has approached the challenge of improving the total design balance in e-motor development.

Kapmann: Améliorer la température intérieure grâce à la simulation et l'optimisation
"Nous pouvons dire sans aucun doute que l’ampleur de l’information qui nous ait parvenue dans un délai de 2 mois d’application est bien meilleure que les réflexions que nous avions recueillies il y a des années dans un processus de conception lourd. Cela signifie que nous avons gagné beaucoup de temps. De plus, nous savons maintenant pourquoi certaines de nos idées initiales n’ont pas fonctionnés. De cette manière, nous avons pu nous concentrer complètement sur les points d’amélioration.
Dans certains cas, nous étions même capable de réduire la hauteur de la construction d’une usine par plus de 15%, ce qui est un énorme pour nos clients."
