Overview of MDO & Methodologies for Meeting the Challenges for Efficient MDO Execution

Presentation by Dr. Royston Jones, Executive VP, European Operations & Global CTO at Altair.

As products increase in complexity, design becomes more multi-disciplinary and the requirement to efficiently deploy Multi-Disciplinary Optimization (MDO) becomes a significant design differentiator. Increasingly, industry is successfully performing MDO studies to achieve optimized balanced design allowing trade-offs between mass, performance and even cost.

In order to impact the product development process, MDO results must deliver to project timescales and in order to achieve this, a number of challenges need to be overcome. Typical challenges consist of efficiently performing MDO pre- and post-processing and solution activities. To meet these challenges, Altair has utilized its expertise in model management, large dataflow, job submittal, optimization and visualization, leveraging HyperWorks technologies to create a vertically integrated end-to-end process software tool.

Using Analytical Approach with Finite Element Analysis for Coupling Magnetic and Thermal Analysis for Motors

Thermal analysis is a key factor when designing motors. We propose to link the studies of
electromagnetic and thermal aspects in transient application with Finite Element Method (FEM) to
represent the thermal state of motor with higher accuracy. As electromagnetic response time is
different of thermal response time, an original method is used for extracting average values on one
magnetic period of losses (Joule and iron losses), and to use them as input for the transient thermal
analysis. So, the temperature in different parts of the motor is extracted, and brought back as input
for the next electromagnetic computation.
