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...
We’re all familiar with shortcuts to improve workflow. Some are widely known, such as Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to quickly copy and paste text or images (or components/models in Dymola). Others are not, but that doesn’t make them less handy. Here are 3 simple Dymola shortcuts...
While developing libraries there are many ideas that dawn on me that are normally accompanied by the phrase “How hard could it be to….”. This is the result of one of those thoughts. While developing ground contact models for our VeSyMA – Motorsports, 1D and 2D tests were created...
INTRODUCTION A synchroniser can be defined as a crucial internal shifting element present in manual, automated manual and dual clutch transmissions. Its objective is to match the circumferential speeds of parts to be connected in short periods of time with the application of minimal force, in the same way...
With the release of the latest version of Dymola, 2020, comes a slew of new features. Notably, this version of Dymola arrives with the latest edition of the Modelica Standard Library, version 3.2.3. Here’s a selection of the highlights in Dymola 2020. Plotting connector variables Earlier, my colleague Alessandro...
Everyday objects rarely move in ways that surprise us. One does not need an understanding of physics to catch a ball— human intuition is enough to predict its path. Knowledge of gravity and momentum is useful for quantifying and explaining the arc the ball follows, but it is not...
