Updated: Simulation Driven Design of a Student Race Car (free video series)

Please Use the Learning Library for Up To Date HyperWorks Learning Material

In this video series the following simulation topics are addressed:

Part 1 – Linear Static Analysis

  • 1D meshing
  • 1D property defintion of the tube cross section
  • modeling of suspension (with rigid links)
  • definition of three loadcases (shear, bending, torsion)
  • analysis
  • postprocessing

as well as

Part 2 – Size Optimization

fine tuning of the tubes cross section properties

      • continous inner and outer radius
      • discrete inner and outer radius

Please note, that the load cases, geometry of the frame, the dimensions of the 1D element cross sections, material parameters et cetera, are just conceptual! click here for more
