Magazin Inventor - PSA: Bis 2025 vollständig digitale Fahrzeugvalidierung

Ein Schlüsselfaktor des Unternehmens PSA Peugeot Citroen bei der Umsetzung ambitionierter Ziele im Bezug auf die computergestützte Simulation ist die Einbindung der Zulieferer in den Entwicklungsprozess. Als Teil einer Kampagne zur Profitabilitätssteigerung will der französische Automobilhersteller ab 2025 bei seinen Fahrzeugen ausschließlich auf computergestützte Entwicklungsmethoden (CAE) zurückgreifen.

Konstruktionspraxis - PSA plant vollständig rechnergestützte Fahrzeugvalidierung bis 2025

Als Teil einer Kampagne zur Profitabilitätssteigerung will der französische Automobilhersteller PSA Peugeot Citroen ab 2025 bei seinen Fahrzeugen ausschließlich auf computergestützte Entwicklungsmethoden (CAE) zurückgreifen und dabei für jeden CAE-Bereich nur ein einziges Modell einzusetzen.

KEM Konstruktion - Mehr CAE, mehr Profitabilität

Autoblog - How optimizing aerodynamics significantly increases EV range

Electric vehicles (EVs) are more popular than ever before, thanks to an increase in the variety of models available and improvements in performance – notably how far these vehicles can now go on a single charge.

As carmakers continue to seek out a competitive edge, one area that can significantly enhance EV performance is aerodynamic optimization. We’ve found that for every 10% reduction in drag, range can be increased by 5%.

IMechE - Carmakers face big fines from EU over emissions

A study has revealed that several carmakers are likely to incur fines of hundreds of millions of euros by missing EU-mandated emissions reduction targets.

According to an analysis by PA Consulting Group, five European car firms will miss the targets set by the EU, which require new car fleets to not emit more than an average of 95g of CO2 per kilometre.

Car and Driver - Explained: That Weird Throbbing When You Open One Car Window

It can be as loud as standing alongside a Boeing 767 at takeoff. And it’s about as irritating as having someone thumping on a bass drum in the back seat. Whether you call it wind throb or buffeting or just plain annoying, it happens when someone in the car opens a single window at speed and it stops when a second window rolls down.

SMMT - Feature: How CFD simulation is driving efficiency

Fuel-consumption targets and emissions legislation, combined with the relative maturity of engine and bodyshape designs, are forcing commercial-vehicle manufacturers to find innovative new ways to improve the efficiency of their vehicles – and one of the latest technological developments in their armoury is digital simulation.

Indeed, testing systems in a virtual environment is now a key tool in the development of more fuel-efficient and eco-friendly vehicles.

Heise Auto - Aerodynamik-Simulation im Fahrzeugbau

Seit wir leistungsfähige Computer nebst entsprechender Mathematik haben, helfen uns Simulationen, unsere Welt vom ganz Großen bis ins Kleinste besser zu verstehen. Wenn wir "Simulation" hören, ordnen wir den Begriff schnell ein zu "das zweitbeste nach Realität", weil es unserer Lebenswelt entspricht. Motorradfahren. Sex. Fußballstadion. In vielen Bereichen jedoch hat sich die Simulation als der Realität weit überlegen gezeigt. Manchmal kann man die Realität nicht so zum Experiment gestalten, dass wir sinnvolle Ergebnisse erhalten.

Discovery

Since the recent Tata-funded Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) rebirth, Jaguar has had its chance to shine with XE, XF and F-Pace; Range Rover had its starring role with both Range Rover and Range Rover Sport SUVs; and now its Land Rover's turn with the all-new much light, tech laden and more luxurious Discovery.

Exa and ESTECO Partner to Offer Optimization Capabilities in the Cloud

BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Exa® Corporation, a global innovator in simulation software for product engineering, is now offering full optimization capabilities on ExaCLOUD® through the integration of PowerFLOW® and modeFRONTIER by ESTECO. ExaCLOUD is a scalable, secure, SaaS environment which provides access to Exa’s full suite of simulation software on tens of thousands of high-performance computing (HPC) cores – all through a web interface.

At the 2016 Paris Motor Show, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) showcased its new Discovery – a seven-seater SUV that will go on sale in spring 2017. It includes a number of striking design choices, like the lightweight aluminium construction that saves 480kg and is a key contributor in reducing CO2 emissions by 22% compared to the previous generation.  (subscription required)

The new Land Rover Discovery (2017) is a feat of virtual engineering

This year’s Paris Motor Show was full of superfast concept cars and innovative technology, but the Land Rover Discovery was still one of the most important cars unveiled in the French capital last week. Although it looks pretty conventional on the outside, it was developed using sophisticated simulation technology that you’d usually associate with F1.

BBC - How car design has gone virtual

In the past, cars were built almost by a process of trial and error. You built a prototype, then tested it to find out what worked and what didn't. Nowadays, much of this work is done by computers. 

Theo Leggett has been talking to Stephen Remondi, chief executive of Exa Corporation, to see how 3D simulations are being used by designers to refine their work in the virtual world before a single car panel has been built in the real one.
