ESI Releases Virtual Performance Solution 2012
PARIS --(Business Wire)--
Group, pioneer and world-leading solution provider in Virtual
Prototyping for manufacturing industries, announces the
release of Virtual
Performance Solution (VPS)
Version 2012. Virtual
Performance Solution enables ESI's
customers to virtually assess and optimize the overall performance of a
future product at a very early stage of the design process. It cuts
product development costs and time-to-market by reducing the number of
physical prototypes, and by significantly improving the whole design
process efficiency throughout the supply chain.
In various industries, manufacturers are striving to develop greener and
safer products, using lighter materials and innovative designs, while
ensuring leading-edge functional standards, including safety, comfort,
NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), acoustics, stiffness and
addresses all these key attributes and allows engineers to handle
interactions across multiple - and sometimes conflicting - domains
efficiently. Leading-edge accuracy is achieved in each domain by
accounting fully for non-linear physics and manufacturing effects.
enables efficient multi-domain optimization to master safety margins and
lower product weight, reduce the number of physical prototypes, shorten
design cycles and cut development costs. eaturing a single-core model
for all domains of performance, and the ability to run all load cases on
a single cluster, VPS
reduces drastically the model conversion tasks and errors, and the lead
times induced by synchronization between domains, in comparison to using
multiple solvers on multiple hardware platforms.
VPS delivers outstanding performance for massively parallel computing
for all domains of performance, and increases the overall workflow
flexibility. The unified user environment for all domains (Visual-Environment)
enables the management and the synchronization of the virtual
engineering processes. Costs associated with multiple software
installation and maintenance are reduced, and the efficiency of the
whole engineering process is significantly enhanced.
Tomáš Kubr, CAE Manager ŠKODA Auto comments "At ŠKODA Auto we
have been using Virtual Performance Solution (VPS) for several years.
Thanks to VPS we may be more efficient, using the same core model for
crash, safety and linear statics. The One core model approach is already
used for bonnet design and allows us to make better decisions about
design changes in a reduced time cycle. We can benefit from this
approach even more, which will allow us to introduce advanced chaining
analysis such as springback after crash loads."
Significant improvements in VPS
2012 specifically include:
the modeling of non-linear phenomena for Strength and Durability;
the modeling of highly damped components for Noise, Vibration &
the accuracy of airbag deployment for Safety;
the handling of assembly pre-loads for all domains.
