The automotive industry is racing faster than ever. As the industry’s global rebound continues, consumers and governments are demanding more. Consumers want lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles and options that weren’t even on the drawing board just a few years ago. Meanwhile, more stringent government environmental regulations are also reshaping the ways automobiles are designed.
As a result, these already complex vehicles are becoming even more complicated as engineers try to incorporate compact turbocharged IC engines, carbon fiber and composite body structures, telematics, wireless connectivity and driver assist systems. At the same time electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular, bringing their own challenges with complicated advanced batteries, e-motor and power electronics systems, and regenerative brakes.
Simulation has played a key role in this industry transformation, helping structural, fluids and electrical engineers to design virtually every automotive part and subsystem – and ensuring that they work together as a unified system.
