In 2014, the Formula 1 technical regulations changed and they introduced a small capacity V6 turbocharged engine with energy recovery systems (ERS). The ERS consists of two electric motor-generators: one is attached to the turbocharger shaft; and the second is attached to the crankshaft. The power rating and energy...
Saab delivers world-leading products, services and solutions for military defence and civil security worldwide. Its Gripen fighter is the first of a new generation, multi-role fighter aircraft that is the most complex and advanced plane Saab has ever built. The fighter is equipped with the latest technology, enabling it...
WMG, formerly Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick, is using Dymola modelling technology to help develop the next generation of low carbon vehicles. The programme, part of the £29 million West Midlands-based Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project (LCVTP), is an advanced research project which will ensure Britain’s...
McLaren Racing, the operating arm of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team, and Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, are pleased to announce a new partnership to further enhance racing car development efficiency. The agreement sees McLaren...
The complexity of automotive powertrains is increasing. As a result it’s becoming increasingly difficult for engineers to determine the optimum specification for the system. The proliferation of control systems also adds to the complexity of the task and increasingly simulation is being used to assist in the development of...
Written by: David Briant – Project Engineer There are many benefits of creating multibody simulations of vehicles, in particular when looking at the suspension design. Many characteristics are investigated when designing suspension; camber, toe, caster, mechanical trail, Ackerman and installation ratio to name a few. Using multibody kinematic models can...
Written by: David Briant – Project Engineer Development of multibody models and systems can be complex, even when dealing with one orientation; but they can get a lot more complicated to understand and build when there are multiple orientations used within the same system. This post aims to improve understanding...
Written by: Maura Gallarotti – Project Engineer Whilst historically turbochargers were mainly used in engines with high top-end performance, nowadays they are also used as part of the engine downsizing process. Along with other technologies and devices, turbochargers can help automotive manufacturers to build more efficient engines and thus cope...
Written by: Sas Harrison – Systems Engineer Introduction This article will explain some ways in which text files can be read into Dymola models. The article is intended for those seeking that specific information (go directly to summary of functions) and any student, or professional as yet new to Modelica,...
Written by: Romain Gillot – Project Engineer From within Dymola we can export a list of the model parameters and filter them by subsystem. Let us consider as an example the double pendulum model from the Modelica Standard Library: Figure 1: Double pendulum example. We will extract the list...
