The ID.R - Success Through Simulation — in Only 250 Days

Development cycles in motorsports are usually quite short; this is also becoming true for standard car development. To reduce testing and the time necessary to plan, design and produce a car, the application of modern engineering simulation methods is crucial.

This webinar focuses on the development of the Volkswagen ID.R — an electric-powered, high-performance prototype car — which was developed in roughly eight months. This was only possible through the massive use of a wide range of simulation tools in fields like structural mechanics, fluid dynamics and system simulation. Some of these applications and the resulting solutions will be shown in this webinar.

Ansys Automotive Webinars thermal analysis

High-Fidelity Thermal Analysis for the Design and Verification of Electric Motors

Design and optimization of high-performance electric machines (e.g., motors and generators) require a multistage process to account for three major performance metrics: electromagnetic, structural/acoustic and thermal. Traditionally, designs were based on a single physics and were conducted by separate engineering groups. Now, by using a multiphysics and system platform, you can consider all critical design goals simultaneously without compromising solution accuracy. In this webinar, we’ll discuss accurate CFD/thermal solutions that enable faster, more reliable and more efficient electric machine designs.
