Efficient Placement of Acoustic Treatment for Electric Vehicle Lightweighting

The hybrid finite element analysis (Hybrid FEA) extends the applicability of finite element models to higher frequencies for vibration and noise simulations. The method has been validated in the past in several automotive applications. In this webinar, we will discuss the workflow of the Hybrid FEA which integrates Altair OptiStruct™ with the Energy Finite Element Analysis (EFEA) code of MES to perform the simulations. A case study will be presented where excitation typical of an electric vehicle motor is considered in frequency ranges above 200Hz. The Hybrid FEA is used for determining the optimal placement and selection of acoustic treatment. The simulations allow to balance the reduction in the interior noise level against the increase in the weight by strategically placing the treatment material on the vehicle body. Presenter: Nick Vlahopoulos | CTO, Michigan Engineering Services (MES) Featuring EFEA by MES, available through the Altair Partner Alliance

Lightweighting With Laminate Composites: Vibro-Acoustic Design Using AlphaCell

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. Presenter: François-Xavier Bécot | Director and Executive Co-Manager, Matelys Featuring AlphaCell by Matelys, available through the Altair Partner Alliance.

How to Avoid Oversized Plastic Parts and Wrong Material Choices in the Design Phase

Lightweight design often is all about replacing metal parts with plastics. Simulation tools are useful to avoid oversized parts and verify its physical integrity early in the development process. But to do it right, influences of the manufacturing process and the right material choice are essential. During this webinar, this process will be outlined for an injection molded short-fiber-reinforced plastic part. The effects of weld lines, fiber orientation, temperature and more, on the part's strength cannot be ignored. How such influences are easily considered will be shown in this webinar. Presenter: Sascha Pazour | Engineer, PART Engineering GmbH Featuring Converse and S-Life Plastics by PART Engineering, available through the Altair Partner Alliance.

Knowledge Studio Spotlight Series - Fraud Detection and Prevention: A Data-Driven Approach

Fraud impacts everyone—from individual consumers to large corporations. Traditional rules-based systems may have been effective in the past in identifying fraud, but they become ineffective and stale as fraudsters learn how to bypass those rules. It becomes even more challenging due to the large volumes of data that need to be processed and examined to detect fraud, in addition to the constantly changing tactics for committing fraud – those activities are usually hidden in large volumes of data. Recently developed machine learning techniques are increasingly effective in detecting fraud with the advances in data systems (e.g. big data, streaming data) and computational systems (e.g. high-performance computing, GPU). As a result, it is possible to identify fraudulent patterns of behavior in data that is constantly being captured from day-to-day activities. In addition, it is feasible to address the challenges associated with fraudsters changing their tactics.

Large Platform Co-site Interference Mitigation

Platforms like frigates, fighter aircraft and armored vehicles tend to contain many transmitting and receiving antennas for a variety of electronic systems such as communication systems (including SATCOM), radar, positioning systems, and more. Even though these systems may operate on different frequencies, due to their proximity they may interfere. To analyze for co-site interference using electromagnetics simulation solutions requires

(a) accurate determination of the coupling between antennas over a broad frequency range, even if platforms are complicated, and no direct line of sight may exist,

(b) evaluation of the impact of non-linear electronic effects including harmonics, intermodulation, IF breakthrough, image frequency, Tx and Rx spectra, and receiver blocking.

Altair’s full system solution for analysis of co-site interference will be presented in this webinar, along with a practical example where an interference problem is identified and eliminated.

Bridge the Gap Between Tests and Simulation

An Introductory webinar to EikoTwin DIC by EikoSim, available through the Altair Partner Alliance. EikoTwin DIC allows image processing (digital image correlation) based on the finite element (FE) mesh of your simulation. DIC is an image processing technique that allows users to measure displacements and strains of a structure during mechanical testing. Compared to strain gages and extensometers, DIC drastically increases the amount of information gathered and the ability for the user to understand the mechanical behavior of their structure. But traditional DIC software produce a measurement of displacement and strains of a cloud of points. Thus, users often have a hard time comparing experimental data with simulation results. EikoTwin DIC is simulation-oriented, which means these displacements and strains are directly measured from the images on the FE mesh. As a result, EikoTwin DIC directly compares these deformations to those predicted by numerical simulations. Through a single test, EikoTwin DIC users are able to understand immediately how to improve their simulations, thus avoiding trial and error and wasting time.
