By automating the crankshaft modeling process using Altair SimLab, BMW Motorrad, the motorcycle division of BMW was able to significantly reduce their model creation time, and enable accuracy in budgetary forecasting and planning. As a result of making it an inhouse resource, they were able to gain flexibility and consistency in model quality, with a high-degree of efficiency with iterations.
Analyzing full-featured parametric CAD assemblies is an extremely labor intensive process requiring skilled CAE expertise. Common practices to shorten simulation cycles have included simplifying and defeaturing CAD geometry – offering little “engineering” value, negatively impacting results accuracy and consistency, and falling short of desired program objectives.
There is a better solution! Introducing Altair SimLab sT, an automated multiphysics simulation environment differentiated by live, bi-directional connections to parametric CAD systems for high-fidelity analysis of solid (thick-walled) assemblies and fluid flow systems.
