In the last 30 years computer simulation has become an indispensable tool of automotive development. Despite of significant progress in simulation technology and impressive results in industrial application there remains a number of challenges. The automotive CAE Grand Challenge stimulates the exchange between users, scientists and software developers in order to solve these challenges. 

 

Software made by ITWM: MESHFREE and IPS Cable Simulation

We are on site with our experts from the department »Transport Processes«, among others Dr. Jörg Kuhnert reports about our software tool MESHFREE. With MESHFREE, we have been providing a software product for the grid-free simulation of physical processes in cooperation with the Fraunhofer SCAI since 2018. The tool combines the expertise of both institutes in the field of gridless scientific computing and has a broad range of applications and its origin in the automotive industry.

In addition, our spin-off fleXstructures is represented at the event and will present IPS Cable Simulation; a software tool that is used in the automotive and commercial vehicle industry as well as in aerospace and mechanical engineering to ensure the efficient laying of flexible components such as cables.
