Robust design of a lithium-ion battery considering manufacturing tolerance
Discover how experts from ESTECO and AVL benefit from coupling ESTECO modeFRONTIER and AVL CRUISE™ M Electrochemistry Battery Model. Designing the best lithium-ion battery cell depends on many factors from materials design to manufacturing and more. In this webinar, ESTECO and AVL demonstrate how to address this challenge by combining the ESTECO Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) technology with AVL multi-physics system simulation tools. Among other factors, the impact of manufacturing tolerances on cell performance is a crucial aspect to consider when designing a lithium-ion battery. The Robust Design and Reliability capabilities within ESTECO modeFRONTIER are able to take these uncertainties into account and manage them effectively from the early stages of product development. During the webinar, experts from ESTECO and AVL will highlight the benefits of coupling ESTECO modeFRONTIER and AVL CRUISE™ M Electrochemistry Battery Model.

Optimizing kinematics and compliances of vehicle suspension using Adams Car and modeFRONTIER
This webinar presents a methodical way of optimization of Kinematics and Compliances (K&C) performance by linking the models developed in Adams Car with modeFRONTIER for end to end process automation and numerical optimization. Experts from ESTECO and MSC Software explain vehicle suspension systems which are made up of many components including springs, dampers, bushings, hardpoints, etc. Each of these components plays a critical role in Kinematics and Compliances (K&C) of suspension systems. Manually evaluating K&C of a system is also a tedious task considering multiple number of events that must be considered i.e. parallel wheel travel, roll, etc. Thanks to ESTECO's design optimization and simulation process integration and automation technologies, the coupling of Adams Car and modeFRONTIER accelerate and ease the process, leading to an optimal combination of these parameters which results in the desired K&C results for all events.

Ensuring product performance with Robust Optimization and Quality Engineering technology
This webinar presents how modeFRONTIER robust and reliability-based optimization capabilities can be applied to avoid opting for designs that perform well on paper, but under-perform in real life. Danilo Di Stefano (Product Manager) and Alberto Clarich (Technical Manager) introduce the Quality Engineering module available in modeFRONTIER. They present how robust and reliability-based optimization can be applied to leave out designs that perform well on paper, but under-perform in real life. Quality Engineering allows to perform a robust analysis in those cases where the variable is affected by a non-probabilistic deviation, or noise. Agenda: ROBUST DESIGN & RELIABILITY - Manage uncertainties with ESTECO technology QUALITY ENGINEERING - A new Robust Design method available in modeFRONTIER modeFRONTIER PLANNER - A modular interface to set-up design exploration, optimization and robust design campaigns easier

Getting started with parametric optimization
This webinar showcases how to perform Parametric Optimization in modeFRONTIER. Parametric optimization is a computer algorithm driven automated process that modifies the problem parameters to find the optimum, or Pareto set of optimums, within a predefined design space, taking objectives and constraints into account. This iterative method allows simulation based design processes to be driven to achieve predefined targets, or to minimize or maximize certain performance characteristics. Watch this webinar and learn more about the importance of parametric optimization, the different algorithms used, strategies and some representative industrial cases.

Fundamentals of Response Surface Modeling
This webinar explains how to create a response surface or mathematical model that can be used to predict the results of a new set of experiments, without having to execute those experiments. This technique is especially useful for computationally expensive simulations such as 3D FEA or CFD, where runtimes of hours or even days can be reduced to seconds. Watch this webinar and learn more about the importance of response surface modeling in simulation based design, the various algorithms and strategies of implementation.
