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: Xiaoran Han – Project Engineer This blog article shows how to replace physical translational, rotational flanges, fluid ports and thermal ports using real input and real output connectors. The technique can be useful when splitting the model is required in order for the model to run on other...
Written by: Theodor Ensbury – Project Engineer As the name suggests, software-in-the-loop simulation sees a piece of software (known as an app) form part of the simulation loop. The app could be a representation of a real-life control module or component, or it could be a control algorithm, which often requires...
Written by: Garron Fish – Chief Engineer At the startup of a simulation, large transients are often present. These transients can cause a model to be slow and unstable at initialisation, therefore improved initial conditions should be found. This article describes a method to store start values in the...
Written by: Nathan Horn, Vice President A recent addition to the Dassault Systemes Dymola portfolio is the Motorsports library, developed by Claytex. The Motorsports library is part of the Vehicle Systems Modelling and Analysis (VeSyMA) solution which is a set of Modelica libraries for vehicle simulation. The Motorsports library...
Written by: David Briant – Project Engineer Creating multibody models can be quite complicated; getting the geometry correct, linking components with correct joint types and getting mass and inertias correct, all have big effects on the motion of mechanical systems and the correlation of simulated models against real systems. This...
