Multi-Variable Drive Cycle Process
When running long transient simulations, you can now predict the boundary conditions using other factors besides just vehicle speed. For example, you can input fan speed, exhaust inlet temperature or mass flow rate and generate a DOE table with a set of steady sample points that exercise these variables. The TAITherm import tasks have been updated to make use of multi-variable data, allowing you to seamlessly import the steady sample data and transient curves representing more than one drive cycle.
New Optimization Variable
When creating an optimization sub-process task in CoTherm you are able to define variables to optimize (for example: shield material thickness, surface condition, and air layer thickness). You can select global or local optimization methods and the possible range for each variable. CoTherm will complete the optimization while minimizing a specified cost function. Optimization can be performed on any type of analysis (such as thermal, CFD, or coupled simulations)
DOE Table Generation
You can now generate a table in CoTherm that contains more than one DOE column while defining the number of points used for each dimension or the total number of points. The table allows full factorial or optimal latin hypercube methods to determine the sample points. These tables can be used to study the sensitivity of uncertain inputs.
