Automotive industry applications
Automotive Wind Tunnel Testing
Customers use Monolith to create a Digital Twin of the product to be tested and can manipulate the Digital Twin’s properties while in the wind tunnel.
By importing data from the sensors, test rig, and airflow, the customer can accurately predict readings from sensors that have failed, the aerodynamic performance of the product, and the impact of air contamination on the test.
The resulting reduction in wind tunnel time saves tens of thousands of pounds per day.
Using Monolith’s intelligent exploration tools, the data can be sorted and easily visualized within the platform to inform engineers.
Machine Learning models can be trained on certain manoeuvers, to predict the forces on the vehicle during manoeuvers that were not performed, thereby reducing total testing time.
This allows for a test campaign to be optimized, reducing the number of tests performed to characterize the vehicle behavior.
Automotive Crash Testing
The Monolith platform allowed the customer’s engineering team to quickly import and process sensor data, then transform it and create machine learning models.
Models created from a small initial number of tests and tests from previous vehicles enabled the engineers to predict the outcome of the regulatory tests.
This enabled them to adjust the safety aspects of the design of new vehicles to satisfy regulatory tests much faster, with fewer resources and lower costs.
Our solution was to learn from previous tests and perform new virtual tests in the Monolith platform to quickly validate or invalidate options to reduce fuel consumption. In this use case, we looked at the effect of three design changes on the fuel consumption: 1) earlier combustion, 2) lower charging loss, and 3) use of an intercooler.
“Combining simulation tools with artificial intelligence offers new design freedom to our customers,” said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, Vice President of Simulation and Test Solutions, at Siemens Digital Industries Software. “With the ability to instantaneously explore new design options, while still satisfying target goals and constraints, AI extends the abilities of engineers to save time and unleashes innovation even without the benefit of CAD access.”
