Automotive manufacturers today are faced with a unique challenge: How to reconcile the consumer’s desire for a car that is powerful and fun to drive, while at the same time fuel-efficient? With record-high fuel prices as well tax penalties imposed by evolving environmental legislation, carmakers recognize the need to develop vehicles that consume less fuel. But how can you cut fuel consumption without seriously compromising the power of the vehicle?
Noesis Solutions, software company and maker of Optimus multi-objective design optimization software, presented a webinar that addressed just this challenge, and has released the webinar recording for those who missed the original presentation. The webinar titled “Balancing Engine Performance & Emissions - Getting it Done in Time,” originally aired live on February 20, 2014, is currently available for free download.
Noesis Solutions produced this webinar in cooperation with AVL Advanced Simulation Technologies. In it, Taylor Newill, application engineer at Noesis Solutions, highlights how the Optimus process and design optimization (PIDO) platform helps deliver the most favorable trade-off between engine performance and emissions.
To meet the challenge of designing a vehicle that is both fuel-efficient and powerful, automotive manufacturers intensively utilize performance simulation technologies. The virtual prototypes delivered by those technologies help development engineers understand how new engine designs behave, and whether customer expectations and legislation requirements can be met. What really sets automotive manufacturer industry leaders apart is how they use their simulation technologies – to what extent they integrate existing simulation tools into a repeatable process and synthesize simulation results into design decision metrics.
Taylor Newill goes into this in more depth in this webinar, which is focused on Optimus & AVL AST software and how vehicle manufacturers are leveraging these technologies for multi-objective design optimization of fuel efficient, high performance vehicles. Process Integration & Design Optimization (PIDO) tools such as Optimus enable development teams to orchestrate the multiphysics simulation tools already in use – as part of an objective-driven optimization process.
The webinar – in cooperation with AVL Advanced Simulation Technologies – shows how Optimus integrates AVL FIRE® or AVL BOOST into a repeatable simulation process, automating all simulation pre-processing and job submissions. Taylor Newill presents industry applications illustrating how Optimus accelerates the decision process, deepens engineering insight, and optimizes your designs – all this within tight time and budget restrictions.
