Engineering.com - Tier One Adds New Simulation Tools for OEM Customers

In the past, automotive parts suppliers provided their customers with what they requested, and the customer would design their product from there. This process has since evolved.

Automotive design engineers began asking their suppliers for advice on how to optimize the designs of their products according to the assembly’s strengths and weaknesses – and who would understand these qualities better than the people who manufactured the parts?

New Collaborative Partnership Between DENSO and Exa Set to Transform the Way Vehicle Manufacturers Work With Suppliers

Exa Corporation (Nasdaq:EXA), a global innovator in simulation software for product engineering, and DENSO Corporation, a leading supplier of advanced automotive technology, systems and components, have announced a new collaborative partnership that will transform the way carmakers have traditionally interacted with suppliers. The partnership enhances the product development process by moving key engineering and design work from automotive suppliers to a certified simulation-driven process that can be done much earlier in the development process, reducing the number of late-stage vehicle design changes.

Autocar - Aerodynamics: why virtual testing is better than a wind tunnel

Manufacturers are moving away from wind tunnel testing and opting to use virtual simulation techniques instead in their quest to reduce aerodynamic drag.

By switching to computer simulations, engineers can model a car’s aerodynamics without even building one.

Virtual simulation techniques are not only quicker and less costly than using a wind tunnel but also yield better results.

Automotive Engineering - Increasing the use of virtual simulation could help Jaguar Land Rover improve validation in vehicle development programmes

Streamlining vehicle development programmes is key to reducing cost, decreasing project length and, some argue, improving quality. To achieve those goals simulation tools are important, and Jaguar Land Rover aims to validate 100% of its systems by 2020, with the eventual target of doing everything in the virtual world, removing the need for physical prototypes.That will require a big leap, and some might laugh at the idea of not physically testing vehicles, but the firm is on the road to meeting its target, as Mark Stanton, director of vehicle engineering explains.

Jaguar Land Rover furthers virtual engineering goals

Jaguar Land Rover has announced its goal of reaching full vehicle verification exclusively through digital simulation by 2020. 
 
To achieve this, JLR is working with computer-aided engineering (CAE) company Exa Corporation for its computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software – which simulates and analyses fluid flow and heat transfer – providing JLR with a technology platform for ‘simulation driven design.'
 

BLOGO - Tesla Model 3: baciata dall'aerodinamica

La gamma Tesla sta crescendo velocemente: lo conferma l’arrivo della Model X ed il prossimo arrivo sul mercato della nuova Model 3, la nuova berlina media a propulsione elettrica della casa americana. Quest’ultima sarà in grado di percorrere una distanza pari a 345 km con un “pieno” della sua batteria: un traguardo di tutto rispetto se si considerano le prestazioni dell’auto, che è in grado di coprire lo 0-100 in meno di 6 secondi.

BGR - Hidden design details that will make you want Tesla’s Model 3 even more

Hundreds of thousands of Tesla fans have been throwing money at the company to buy its cheapest electric car yet, securing their place in line to purchase the Model 3. Many of them preordered the car even before Tesla revealed its design and specs. In the meantime, almost everything is known about the Model 3 at this point, but a new report reveals hidden design details that might make Tesla’s new Model 3 one of the best electric cars money can buy in any price range. At least, for the time being.
