From Trek to Hyundai, Airbus to ZF Wind Power, this issue is packed with customers showing how the digital twin provides them with not just the numbers, but also the knowledge to make better design decisions.

Engineer Innovation Magazine Issue 2The automotive industry has long led the charge into increased digitalization and in this new issue Siemens shares the success of Opel, Hyundai and Volvo trucks. The simulation & design results achieved are impressive. Hyundai have been able to reduce vehicle tests by 40 percent, Electra Mecannica moved from concept and digitalization to road-ready in just 18 months, and Volvo Trucks are able to perform acoustic testing concurrently with other tests to save valuable time without compromising results.

It isn’t only the automotive industry that is benefitting from Simcenter solutions, Trek is one of the worlds’ largest cycle manufacturers, building over 1.5 million bikes each year. They have reduced the runtime on simulation models from six hours to just 22 minutes. Airbus helicopters demonstrate how they have reduced their testing commitment thanks to improved model accuracy from simulation and the US Military are reducing costly corrosion issues with the digital twin.

In Issue 2:

  • Cordesa: The cost of corrosion
  • Opel: Frontloading CFD in the thermal management of an automotive headlight
  • ZF Wind Power: Harnessing the power of the wind
  • Electra Meccanica: Electric Automotive manufacturer uses Simcenter and NX
  • Trek Bicycle: Design space exploration

What is Next Generation CFD?

Let's get right to it: it's called next generation CFD because developers have actually beaten the program into an engineering workable process where you can take your model and you can change various geometric parameters. Join us on this brief 5 minute journey as we walk through the capabilities of CFD over the years and discover where we are now and how we've gotten here. If you've been working in CFD for lots of years, these are exciting times. Changing geometry has always been difficult.… READ MORE

Two Design Optimization Examples in Next Generation CFD

In this seminar we show a couple of examples that we've worked on at Predictive Engineering. The first one is a float mixing problem from an old HVAC job that we had some years ago. The unit sits on top of the hospital and it’s the air mix of a return air and new air mixing in before it goes into the heat exchanger racks. The challenge is to avoid getting hot and cold spots inside the system. Usually you have to have very large spaces and you have these blades so they're set up to turn it. But… READ MORE
