Concept Vehicle Architecture Exploration

Identifying the right architecture that can be repurposed for multiple vehicle variants is strategically important for automotive manufactures trying to reduce time to market & consolidate engineering effort.

We can imagine two kinds of data. A detailed body model, which achieves computational accuracy but very complex and expensive for iterative studies. The other one is a simplified architecture concept model that simulates the basic layout and general structural behavior of major load-carrying members in the body. Such models are valuable for CAE validated design directions in the earliest phases of the vehicle development process.

This demo focusses on the second type, Parametric Architecture Concept (PAC) Models, which will leverage global vehicle parameters for exploration across multiple variants, modularization techniques and a combination of detailed and concept design, to support design and simulation studies through multiple phases.
