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...
Understanding Operational Design Domain to create Informed Safety in Autonomous Vehicles Deployment (1/2)
One of the biggest challenges for autonomous vehicles (AV) is how to argue their safety case. The first step towards a state of informed safety is establishing the capability of an automated driving system (ADS) by defining its operational design domain (ODD). What is an ODD? “ODD is an...
When creating models it can be difficult to work out the best route to getting the best result most efficiently and with the best usability. Modelica and all the Claytex Libraries use a system of inheritance as described in the 8th Dymola Basics post. This means that extending from...
Two weeks ago, the Claytex tech blog considered the role simulation must play in modern automotive development in a conceptual way. But what does that look like in context? How can VeSyMA be integrated into OEM workflows? Existing structures need updating for modern vehicles First, we must understand the...
This post looks at a simple way to check that derivatives of a function are correct and in the process explores some of the different plotting features of Dymola. When should derivatives be checked? Most of the time it is best to let Dymola calculate derivatives (see automatically-getting-derivatives-of-a-function-in-dymola). However...
As vehicles are getting more complex as integrated mechatronic systems, approaches which are cross-disciplinary using simulation are now vital. Development processes need to be able to capture and understand all the permutations of each design change or choice, which cannot be easily discretised into singular studies, whether physical or...
