Taking on the Shell XPRIZE with Help from a Digital Twin
Chris Wilkinson, CTO at SMD speaks at the UK Altair Technology Conference 2019. An XPRIZE challenge is designed to source new approaches to solve difficult problems thereby disrupting existing markets or creating new ones. Our oceans cover over 70% of the planet with only 5% explored. The ocean environment is hostile and technically challenging to operate within. The Ocean Discovery XPRIZE competition was established to seek cheaper and faster solutions to survey the world’s oceans. This presentation is about one of the teams that entered the competition with a disruptive solution for ocean survey. The emerging role and importance of a digital twin is explored to support the solution as it scales from proof of concept to one that is fully industrialised.

Using Advanced Simulation to Design Leading Motorcycles
Rod Giles, Group Manager CAE & CAD presents at the UK ATC 2019. Royal Enfield has and is undergoing a massive transformation, not only in the sales and manufacturing departments, but also in the way the motorcycles are designed and developed. Leading the way in the development of all new motorcycle platforms is the use of advanced Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools. At Royal Enfield we use a wide array of different tools and techniques. The primary tool for model preparation and analysis is Altair Hyperworks. Rather than trying to cover the vast range of analyses carried out, today I will concentrate on some examples where advanced techniques have helped the design process including using smooth particle hydrodynamics (SPH) in explicit analysis to evaluate fuel tank integrity, using NVH director to evaluate and improve transfer path analysis (TPA) to aid the rider comfort, using topology optimisation to reduce mass and improve structural performance of engine and chassis components, and using MotionSolve to understand complex mechanism dynamics.

A New & Revolutionary Way to Collect Energy from Wind
David Yáñez presents at the UK ATC 2019. Vortex Bladeless is a Spanish start-up that is developing a new wind energy technology. Its key characteristic is the minimization of mechanical elements that can be worn by friction. In the first stage, its application area seems to be distributed energy. For its development, CFD tools are being of vital importance. Both the fluid-structure interaction and the behavior of the magnetic fields in the alternator are being studied mainly with this type of tool. The results obtained are being contrasted with experimental results obtained both in wind tunnel and in real application environments.

A general vision of the technology, the strategies used for the integration of the different physical phenomena involved and the path traveled for its development will be exposed.

Development of the Next Generation Civil Tiltrotor
Leonardo’s Product Roadmap and the Associated Design Challenges. The Multi-Disciplinary Requirements of Tiltrotor & Other Lightweighting Studies.



This is a keynote presentation from the UK Altair Technology Conference 2019 by David Matthew, Lead Engineer at Leonardo. David joined Westland Helicopters as an undergraduate trainee in 1990, studying Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College and joining the Stress Office following graduation. Since then, David has worked within the airframe structure system group on a range of military and civil helicopter projects including the AW101 and AW189 helicopters, becoming a lead specialist in fatigue and damage tolerance, structural analysis, testing, and qualification. On the AW189 project, he led the analysis and qualification activities from preliminary design through to certification.



For the last year, David has been the Structures Lead Engineer for the Next Generation Civil Tilt Rotor project. This is a collaborative research project, which is part of the European Union Clean Sky 2 programme. This project is to develop technologies to support a large tiltrotor aircraft and to demonstrate these on a test demonstrator aircraft.

Vehicle NVH Design & Development Using NVH Director
Malcolm Hardy, Principal Engineer Vehicle NVH at Jaguar Land Rover presents at the UK Altair Technology Conference 2019. With an increasing number of vehicle programmes, propulsion variants and body styles on a range of different vehicle architectures, it is increasingly challenging to ensure that control models are consistent to allow comparable CAE assessment.



This is essential to allow key engineering decisions to be made and becomes even more critical as Jaguar Land Rover develop Full Vehicle NVH Simulator models to enable subjective assessments and sign-off before a physical prototype is built. This leads to a requirement for a consistent and robust process, independent of the user, for assembling models and applying load cases across all programmes, aligned to demanding gateway timing.



In response to these requirements, Jaguar Land Rover are integrating Altair’s NVH Director into their Vehicle NVH development process. This has enabled the formalisation of model requirements and processes, ensuring that vehicle models are built consistently with standardised load cases and post processing. This allows the reporting of status more efficiently than previously, allowing more time for engineering development and the future ability to stochastically assess the robustness of engineering solutions and likelihood of error states.

Build, Verify & Optimise a Body-in-White Structure in a Working Day
Dr. Tayeb Zeguer, Group Tech Leader APD, Advanced CAE at Jaguar Land Rover presents at the UK Altair Technology Conference 2019. A Design exploration, loadpath studies, material selection and heavy usage of Optimisation are key to the development of a lightweight and efficient Body-In-White (BIW) structure. Nevertheless, the fast pace of vehicle development makes it a challenge to do such CAE work fast enough to drive the design and the decision making. This is why the C2 phase of the Altair C123 process is the ultimate weapon to drive the design in a fast and reliable manner. By using low fidelity models, the C2 phase allows quick iterations, large DOEs and complex optimisation studies to be executed within minutes and have a large impact on design and strategy decisions.



The natural starting point for the C2 process is the supply of a C1 layout model with associated CAD packaging data. However, another entry point is the availability of a high fidelity finite element model from a previous program. The initial activity is the rapid development of a C2 model which can generate a reliable and good quality results. This is the reason why Altair has developed various tools to ease the process of creating “ready to optimise” low fidelity models. Thanks to a highly automated series of tools combined with highly advanced optimisation technology, it is now possible to build, verify and optimise a BIW model for Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) and Crash in a single working day.
