Monash Motorsport takes advantage of optimization and additive manufacturing technologies and wins again!

Since their first Australian SAE Student Racing competition in 2000, the Monash Motorsport team has steadily improved the performance of their race car. Recently the students discovered the benefits of combining Altair‘s OptiStruct optimization technology and 3D printing. Based on an initial prototype rear hub design from the 2013 car, the team proceeded to pursue titanium front hubs and uprights to decrease the car’s unsprung mass. This was a tough challenge, since the former design was already made of lightweight aluminum. To tackle this, Monash Motorsport employed Altair’s optimization technology OptiStruct to design and optimize a titanium upright, which was then produced using additive manufacturing technology from CSIRO. As a result, the students were able to reduce the component’s weight by a further 30 percent whilst maintaining the component stiffness and reducing the development time and costs.

Since 2013, RUAG Space has been conducting intensive research and development work to investigate how to ‘print’ its components using an Additive Manufacturing (AM) process. The goal of the engineers was to take full advantage of the design freedom AM offers and to create an aluminum component that would be significantly stiffer while at the same time lighter than the original design. In addition, RUAG’s engineers also wanted to cut down design and development time to get results and the final component faster.

Optimal Design Exploration Using Global Response Surface Method: Rail Crush

As design exploration and optimization methods have become commonly accepted across a range of industries, such as aerospace, automotive or oil and gas, they are frequently utilized as standard practice to efficiently produce designs and aid critical engineering decisions. The widespread acceptance of these methods coupled with the power of modern computing has led to applications across a range of design problems and ever-increasing complexity. The size and scope of this expansion continually pushes the boundaries of existing exploration and optimization methods. Furthermore, a complete exploration of the optimal design space includes computationally intensive features such as multi-objective optimization, to understand the trade-off between competing objectives, and global optimization, to avoid local extrema.

Optimizing Cooling Passages in Turbine Blades

Turbine blades have internal passages that provide cooling during operation in a high temperature engine. The design of the cooling passages is critical to achieve near uniform temperature of the blade during operation. The temperature of the blade is dependent on the thermal properties of the blade material as well as the fluid dynamics of the air circulating in the cooling passages. Computational optimization methods have successfully been applied to design lighter and more efficient structures for many aerospace structures. An extension of these techniques is now applied to guiding the thermal design of a turbine blade by designing the optimal cooling passage layout. Optimization methods will be applied to determine the optimum pattern of the cooling passages and then to optimize the size of the individual cooling passages. The goal is to produce a more thermally efficient turbine blade design that will produce blades with longer lives and better performance.

Computational Analysis of Quadriceps Tendon Force Following Total Knee Replacement Surgery Leads to Improved Patient Knee Flexure

Anterior knee pain is a significant complication following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery. The inability to freely extend/flex the knee has a crucial influence on patients daily activities including walking, lifting and rising from a chair. This knee movement inability is one of the most common indications of needed TKA procedure revisions. Poor sizing during surgery of the patellar knee component – a “button-like” element that increases the mechanical advantage of the extension force. The research biomechanics group in the Department of Bioengineering at Clemson University has evaluated the effect of the patella-button thickness on the variation of the magnitude of the quadriceps tendon force by applying HyperWorks-based finite element analysis.

Weld locations may be optimised alongside welding sequence to allow process requirements to be considered within the early design stage. This leads to high performance, low distortion assemblies which can ultimately be manufactured at the lowest possible cost.

Scania Customer Story

Squeak and rattle phenomena are studied in the automotive industry in an attempt to reduce the cabin noise and as a result, give a better ride quality and comfort to occupants. In the case of Scania’s Cabin Development Department, this kind of simulation was not performed historically. The team had to rely on tolerance calculations as well as the choice of materials to reduce the risk of squeak and rattle. To reduce development time and cut down on iterative changes, a desirable solution was identified that enabled a simulation-driven design process during the early stages of the cabin development cycle.
