Highly Optimized Passive Lubrication System for an EV Transmission
Presentation by Dr. Milos Stanic, nanoFluidX Product Manager at Altair.



Optimising the rotational losses of an EV transmission is essential to improve range. Whilst bearing and gear losses are well understood, the interaction between rotating components and transmission fluid rarely exploited other than reducing lubricant viscosity. Effective methods for modelling drag and fluid transfer around a transmission have not robustly existed previously.



Converting electrical power into mechanical power to drive a fluid pump is wasteful. However, in tightly packaged EV transmissions where thermal cooling is limited it is essential to manage the lubricant. A novel method for passively moving fluid around an EV transmission with low losses has been developed. The system uses existing components in the gearbox to move fluid in a controlled manner. The cost savings of using this technology can be used directly elsewhere to improve vehicle range.



In order to iterate through potential design solutions a suitable computer based modelling approach had to be developed. A new smoothed particle hydrodynamics approach was created to predict the fluid movement and the drag level on the remaining components. A correlation of this approach was carried out with real world testing to prove its validity.

Overview of MDO & Methodologies for Meeting the Challenges for Efficient MDO Execution
Presentation by Dr. Royston Jones, Executive VP, European Operations & Global CTO at Altair.

As products increase in complexity, design becomes more multi-disciplinary and the requirement to efficiently deploy Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) becomes a significant design differentiator. Increasingly, industry is successfully performing MDO studies to achieve optimized balanced design allowing trade-offs between mass, performance and even cost.

In order to impact the product development process, MDO results must deliver to project timescales and in order to achieve this, a number of challenges need to be overcome. Typical challenges consist of efficiently performing MDO pre- and post-processing and solution activities.

Defining Positioning System for Heavy Lift Barge with AcuSolve
Presentation by Pawel Sadowski, Technical Support Manager at DES ART.

Even during building roads your approach may be different from the standard one. The nature often forces engineers to use their creativity and go beyond typical projects. This leads to some unique, futuristic structures or some additional projects that have to be done and at the end are invisible. Our project of heavy lift barge contains in the second group. One part of this project was to proof that positioning system is sufficient to keep right position at the sea even during unfavorable weather conditions. For this purpose we perform numerous CFD analyses using AcuSolve. Computational cases differed in angle of flow, speed of flow and configuration of the barge. As a result of these all analyses defined working area of positioning system.

Thermal and Impact Analysis of a Nuclear Flask Design
Thomas Goulding, Senior Mechanical Engineer at Assystems presents at the UK ATC 2019. Nuclear transport flasks are used to store and transport nuclear waste material. When transported on public roads the flask must fulfil International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) test requirements, which are designed to ensure that release of radionuclides is not credible. Whilst on-site, the flask requirements are driven by the Safety Justification which can be quite different to those defined by the IAEA.

A function-led design process was undertaken to fulfil these requirements for an IAEA Type B(M) package. This required a range of drop impact simulations using RADIOSS.

Altair HyperWorks was used as a common enabling tool for the analyses. The tools within HyperWorks were used to perform multi-disciplinary optimisation of the flask, without the need to revisit the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) model. Workable solutions, proven by simulation, were then incorporated into the CAD design. This function-led process was seen to be more efficient than the traditional trial-and-error approach.

HyperMesh was used for mesh creation due to excellent element control and its capability to support a variety of solvers.

The use of HyperCrash (pre-processor), RADIOSS (solver) and HyperView (post-processor) enabled non-linear impact analyses to be performed.


Integration of Optimization into Design with Altair's MDO Offering
CAE has since long been established as the tool for validating and certifying mechanical properties during product development. Simulation-driven design takes simulation and optimization into the creative design process. Primary goal of simulation-driven design is to provide a continuous stream of decision data to support concept design and later product development stages.

Optimization of Spacecraft Metallic Primary Structure with OptiStruct
Spacecraft primary structure is designed to react all the major loads imparted on a spacecraft. Inadequately designed or tested primary structure can result in structure failure during launch and endanger mission success. To maximize the useful payload to orbit, primary structures are typically designed to minimize mass while maximizing strength and stiffness characteristics. Identifying an optimal balance of these three design characteristics can be challenging due to the extensive number of load cases applicable to the primary structure. For this study, multiple finite element models (FEM) are optimized to define a metallic panel capable of reacting launch loads and supporting a large secondary payload mounted to the panel. To react the launch loads, the panel strength margins are evaluated and the secondary payload’s 1st bending mode is maximized to reduce dynamic coupling with the launch vehicle dynamic environment. For the optimization, the mass is constrained to not exceed an available mass budget. The primary structure panel is connected to a generic spacecraft bus representative of a typical Northrop Grumman satellite.

Fast contact method for speeding up solving finite element problems involving non-linear contact behavior
For large aerospace assemblies in finite element (FE) analysis problems, contact interaction between the surrounding bodies has to be established to simulate the load transferred between the components, like aircraft engine carrying bracket assemblies, spigots assemblies etc., and understand the effects of interaction between respective parts. In some cases, depending upon geometry of the assembly, the region of study may not be contact area but the stresses acting within the parts themselves. If there is no geometric or material non-linearity in such problems, a new contact formulation method known as Fast Contact can be used in these contact regions.

Antenna Placement Optimization for Vehicle-To-Vehicle Communications
Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) technology has the potential to significantly enhance driver safety. The type, placement, and orientation of V2V antennas all affect the performance of the communication system. Simulation software for high frequency electromagnetics can be used to analyze the farfield effects of various vehicle antenna configurations without the need to perform physical testing. We present a simulation-based method for optimizing the placement and orientation of a monopole antenna on a vehicle using a Global Response Surface Method (GRSM).

Topology Optimization and Casting Feasibility of a Robot Arm
Oftentimes, in the design of a casting, suboptimal structural concepts are developed which at the same time are not castable, requiring multiple and time-consuming design iterations. This paper describes a process to generate both structurally efficient and also castable parts, while reducing the overall design cycle time. The optimal structure is determined by topology optimization, reducing component mass while maintaining performance requirements. This step is followed by a design smoothing operation and then by a casting simulation to check for casting defects. To demonstrate this software driven product design and process validation, solidThinking Inspire® is used to develop the concept design and Click2Cast® for casting process validation.

Snap-Fit Optimization for Achieving Desired Insertion and Retention Forces
Snap-fits are ubiquitous engineering features used to quickly and inexpensively assemble plastic parts. The geometric, material, and contact nonlinearities associated with snap-fit problems can present modeling challenges. Quasi-static solutions with explicit solvers are commonly used to analyze snapfits; however, OptiStruct’s nonlinear solver now possess the ability to solve these highly nonlinear problems implicitly. The first part of this study discusses an effective approach to using OptiStruct for the implicit finite element analysis of snap-fits. Once an accurate simulation model has been created, engineers typically make design changes in order to achieve desired insertion and retention forces. The second part of this study details how HyperMesh morphing and HyperStudy can be used to optimize the snap-fit design, resulting in desired insertion and retention forces while minimizing mass and ensuring structural integrity. The approach documented in this report can reduce the design time, material use, and failure rate of snap-fits used in industry.
