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...
Dymola has very powerful plot and animation features. They can be activated or deactivated during and/or after the simulation of the Modelica model. The animation of the Dymola model can be run at different speeds, halted, single stepped, in parallel with previous/saved animation results and run backwards. For more...
Modern vehicles; modern challenges Vehicles are getting ever more complex, with subsystems becoming further interdependent with the wider system dynamics than ever before. Beyond this, modern vehicles now interact with their surroundings, reacting and responding to changes in the immediate environment. This is never truer than in autonomous vehicles....
This blog post is a continuation from a previous post on the Modelica Language. This blog post focuses on the syntax used in equations and algorithms and the difference between the two. Calculations Equation Sections Models and blocks primarily use an equation section to define the calculations of the...
There is an old expression that says, “Bad data in, bad data out”, or words to that effect. A key skill an accomplished CAE engineer must have is to be able to verify the quality of input data but also judge the quality and physical validity of simulation results....
As part of the 2018.3 release of the VeSyMA – Engines library, some new features and improvements have been implemented. One of the main ones is the rationalisation of the sub busses and of the bus signals. Until now, several busses were used throughout the library to pass signals...
