Training Session Descriptions

Track 1: 1D

Journey towards electrified transportation development 

Today, the R&D in mobility is centered around one technology: electrification. In order to meet the current requirements in terms of energy efficiency while improving performance and coping with thermal constraints, Simcenter Amesim offers several tools to simulate, predict and optimize electrified transportation systems. This workshop will present how system simulation can improve the development of electrified vehicles, from battery and motor requirement to complete vehicle integration and thermal management.  


Deploy system simulation at enterprise level

Together with the electrification trend, systems and architecture are becoming more complex. The transition toward new hybrid and electric vehicle architectures implies continuous and careful balancing of multiple attributes such as fuel consumption, performance, comfort or emission. In the context of large system simulation deployment new categories of users have come to exist. Siemens now offers a tool that answers the need for accessible simulation frameworks across company divisions. The workshop will show you how this tool can be deployed at the enterprise level. 

Improve safety and ROI of fluid systems starting from isometrics

Digitalization opens up significant opportunities for most industries working with large and complex piping systems. Isometric drawings have been a standard for creating the routing laying out piping systems.

Track 5: TEST

Model Based System Testing – the marriage of Test and Simulation

In the digital era, it is crucial to test, validate and optimize real world designs within the constraints of shorter testing cycles, conflicting performance requirements, growing product complexity and reduced costs. This gives rise to an obvious question: how does Testing benefit from Simulation, or vice versa, how to enable our customers to cope with the growing number of variants while keeping the product development process as efficient as possible? The answer to this is Model Based System Testing which allows us to close the loop between Test and Simulation. This session will show you how 1D system simulation as wells as 3D models can be integrated with Test results within the Simcenter user environment in order to provide better engineering insight when direct measurements are not always possible.


Electrical Hybrid Vehicles
Electric vehicles may be quiet, but they are not silent! Increasing comfort, quality and reliability proves to be more complicated with the introduction of new powertrain technologies, engine and driveline subsystems. Wind and road noise are more prominent when not masked by the internal combustion engine. But also new secondary noises like the high frequency tonal noise of the electric motor and driveline, or the noise from battery cooling, HVAC, steering systems or wiper motors are making the noise spectrum more complex. All this drives an increased interest in experimental NVH testing methods such as sound quality engineering. This training session will show how Simcenter Testlab and advanced sound source localization techniques such as Simcenter Sound Camera address these topics.

Enhancing durability testing and fatigue life calculations with Simcenter TEST
In the modern product development process there is an increased interest in improving the productivity of physical testing activities, both for acquisition and processing tasks.

Component-based Transfer Path Analysis
The capability of predicting early in the development process the in-vehicle noise contribution from  source components such as powertrain, road noise, HVAC or steering system is a major challenge. In order to avoid costly and time-consuming design iterations, engineers are seeking modular technologies that enable full vehicle noise predictions to be derived from component test bench measurements. Component-Based TPA is specifically tailored for this type of analysis. This session will focus on the newest TPA approaches to obtain better and faster insights into vehicle NVH, namely Component-based TPA and Model-based TPA that enable loads from 3D simulations to be combined with Test models.
