This is what AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING EXPO 2019 in Nuremberg has to offer.
Simulation-based design and optimization of vehicle architectures and bodies in the early phase
C123 is a three-step process that supports the concept development of vehicle architectures and bodies and enables developers to save significant time when making changes. In the C2 phase, a CAE beam model is created whose properties correspond to those of the body-in-white cross-sections. This allows the essential mechanical properties of a car body to be described with a significantly reduced number of parameters. Very many concept variants can be tested, optimized and compared with CAE in a very short time. A time saving of factor 25 and more is possible. A further process improvement is the direct connection via a proprietary interface to the CAD environment known to designers. This allows developers to examine many variants of a body-in-white at a very early stage and to consider different design alternatives. This method leads to a higher degree of maturity of the concept at any stage of development.
