Introductory remarks – Welcome to Simulating the Mobility Experience of the Future13:00 - 13:20 CETDr. Prith Banerjee, CTO at Ansys
Session One – Opening Keynote Session – Pushing the Boundaries of Simulation13:20 - 13:55 CET
Virtualized design and development enables more rapid evolution, and more design evolution and changes to the cars delivers better performance on track.
During this session, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing will highlight how the team integrates and optimizes CFD processes to achieve high accuracy and efficiency to deliver hundreds of simulations every week. It will also reveal how it is pushing the boundaries of simulation to reveal all fluid flows on F1 car with Ansys Fluent.Zoe Chilton, Head of Technical Partnerships at Red Bull Technology
Session Two – Achieving Assured Connected and Autonomous Vehicles14:00 - 14:45 CET
Verification and validation (V&V) requirements present a key challenge to the automotive industry as it continues investing in automated and autonomous vehicle technologies. In this session, Geoff Davis, CSO at HORIBA, will explore recent research into a revised approach to V&V, which is being developed as an alternative to the traditional V-cycle.
If implemented as part of a type-approval process, the approach will require the utilization of scenario-based test regimes that include a combination of correlated
simulation and modelling, and physical controlled and public road test environments.Join this session to find out more about:
Geoff Davis, CSO at HORIBA
- The complexities and challenges to overcome to achieve successful V&V.
- Ensuring robust connected and autonomous vehicle deployment.
- The latest and most innovative approaches to tackling V&V requirements.
Session Three – CAD EMC Simulations: The new frontier for reducing engineering developing times in the e-mobility industry15:00 - 15:45 CET
As car manufacturers convert part of their production from diesel cars to hybrid (PHEV) or fully electric (BHEV) vehicles, Meta System EMC Simulation Engineer Antonio Camarda will explore some of the solutions it is employing to tackle the associated challenges.
This session will look at how on-board chargers (OBC) are able to provide the necessary DC voltage from the AC network to charge vehicle batteries in the least possible time, and how car manufacturers are working with OBC producers to reduce their dimensions and introduce structural, thermal and electromagnetic compatibility solutions.
Camarda will look at the latest CAD tools for structural Finite Element Method (FEM), or Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), as they are consolidated within the automotive industry, as well as the challenges arising during the industry’s transition to e-mobility such as electromagnetic compatibility.Join this session to hear about:
Antonio Camarda, EMC Simulation Engineer at Meta System
- The innovative solutions car manufactures are employing to address climate pollution rules.
- How engineering developing times are being reduced through forecasting the behavior of products through EMC simulations.
Session Four – Four Pillars of Electrification
As electrification drives future mobility and providers pivot to invest in electric vehicles (EVs), the race to capture market share is on. To succeed, manufacturers are re-engineering their vehicles to satisfy driving range, battery life, safety and cost by focusing on the four ‘pillars’ of electrification: battery, power electronics, electric motors and electric powertrain integration.
During this session, Ansys Distinguished Engineer Larry Williams will demonstrate how engineers design for the four ‘pillars’ of electrification, from batteries designed at the electrochemical level, to the integrated battery pack thermal-mechanical considerations that need to be accounted for in order to ensure reliability and safety.
Williams will provide industry examples that demonstrate how high-performance computing (HPC) can be leveraged to fully explore designs; how system simulation linked to 3D electromagnetic simulation can optimize the drive and machine; and how companies combine product simulation with hardware emulation to build drive systems before any prototypes have been built.
In this closing session, we will learn:
Larry Williams, Distinguished Engineer at Ansys
- How high-performance computing (HPC) can be leveraged to fully explore designs.
- How to achieve full system integration of the electric powertrain with system-level analysis.
