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...
This post has a closer look at the different inlining options: Inline, LateInline and InlineAfterIndexReduction as described in the Modelica Specifications in Section 8.3. The post describes how these inlining options differ and gives some extra details about how this inlining has been implemented in Dymola. What is inlining?...
It’s early February. Speedweeks are upon us, and the Motorsports community is gearing up for the marquee event on the NASCAR calendar. Heralded as The Great American Race, the Daytona 500 is world famous as a frightening 200 MPH chess match of drafting, tactics and bumping. Drivers look to work together and...
In this blog post I look at the Dymola setup settings, how you edit them and where they are stored. There are lots of options available to personalise your Dymola setup; I won’t cover the detail of all the settings here, but by knowing where to edit them and...
What are eigenvalues in a physical system? Eigenvalues describe the stability of a system and often associate with linear algebra. One way to understand eigenvalues is to show their use in describing engineering systems, such as the mass spring damper system described in this post. It shows that by...
I’ve been having a look at some models recently and seeking to make them more “readable” and easier on the eye. This blog post looks at why poorly laid out models can be detrimental to our modelling efficiency. Some of these principles can also be applied to other activities...
