Endurance-Info.com - La FIA travaille d’arrache-pied pour éviter le décollage des LM P1

Si on vous dit qu’une LM P1 peut décoller en cas de sortie de piste, on ne vous apprendra rien. La hantise des différents acteurs de l’Endurance reste le décollage d’une auto. Les ailerons de requin sont apparus il y a quelques années afin d’éviter l’envol des prototypes en perdition. La FIA ne cesse de travailler pour parer à tout souci à haute vitesse. A ce titre, elle collabore avec des spécialistes de la simulation informatique qui planchent sur des solutions qui permettront de prévenir davantage les décollages des LM P1 et autres catégories prototypes.

Truck & Off-Highway Engineering - Engineering with Simulation and Data

Companies are discovering new simulation techniques, especially optimization; the next step is to combine simulation with sensor data and predictive analytics to create even more robust off-highway equipment.

Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S.  EPA Tier 4 Final emmisions regulations.

FIA - Launch Experts

The FIA is working with computer simulation specialists to find solutions that will further prevent car launches in LMP1 and other high-speed categories.

A sudden spin can be disastrous in motor sport. A good result can be lost and reputations ruined in the blink of an eye. But in the case of LMP1 cars, a high-speed spin can make the risk of a violent airborne crash a distinct possibility.  page 30

Exa Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2017 Financial Results

"We executed well during the fourth quarter, delivering net income and adjusted EBITDA that both exceeded our guidance, with revenue that was within the lower half of our guidance range," said Stephen Remondi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Exa. "For the full year, we produced top line year over year growth with license revenue increasing 14% or 12% on a constant currency basis. We also continued to realize our operating leverage potential as demonstrated by a 4.2 percentage point increase in adjusted EBITDA margin over FY 16.

Autoblog - Open Road

There aren't many car owners who enjoy seeing their vehicle covered in muck – it annoys them from both an aesthetic and practical point of view, as filthy doors don't look great and dirty handles aren't much fun to touch. Dirt can also be a hazard for drivers as their vision is obscured, as well as potentially hindering operation of safety technologies that rely on cameras – many of which are crucial to the semi-autonomous capabilities of today's vehicles.

ATTI- PSA ad Exa in CAE development tie-up

Currently CAE accounts for around 60% of vehicle development at PSA. The auto maker is working to change that, starting by unifying software models.

PSA’s answer is to use a single computer model for each aspect of CAE, with Exa Corporation working in close collaboration on the CFD side. The company is also looking to share more of its CAE information with suppliers of both software and components, as well as university laboratories.

ATTI - Spray simulation

Complex water management scenarios, such as the water picked up by a vehicle's tires while driving, can be simulated accurately in Exa Corporation's PowerFlow 5.4 environment.

The white smoke-like visualization in the airflow shows the heavy concentration of water in the air. Water film on the vehicle's surface is colored by the film thickness, which can be used to determine the extent to which it obstructs visibility.

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%.
