Article
Full-text available
Simulation is becoming increasingly important in the development, testing and approval process in many areas of engineering, ranging from finite element models to highly complex cyber-physical systems such as autonomous cars. Simulation must be accompanied by model verification, validation and uncertainty quantification (VV&UQ) activities to assess...
Article
Full-text available
The automotive design process is highly complex and is getting more diverse. With increasing possibilities in modeling, computing and analyzing, simulation driven design is essential to support this process. It has the advantage to reduce costs, time and the risk of wrong decisions. To achieve these benefits verification and validation is crucial,...

Safeguarding and type approval of automated vehicles is a key enabler for their market launch in our complex traffic environment. Scenario-based testing by means of computer simulation is becoming increasingly important to cope with the enormous complexity and effort. However, there is a huge gap when assessing the safety of the virtual vehicle whi...
Article
The modelling, simulation and analysis methods in automotive development are in the process of transformation. Increasing system complexity, variant diversity and efforts to improve efficiency lead to more complex simulations and depend on virtual vehicle development, testing and approval across a large application area. Consequently, the new key r...

The modelling and simulation process in the automotive domain is transforming. Increasing system complexity and variant diversity, especially in new electric powertrain systems, lead to complex, modular simulations that depend on virtual vehicle development, testing and approval. Consequently, the emerging key requirements for automotive validation...

Conference Paper
Automobile manufacturers are in the midst of the greatest phase of transformation in their history. The paradigms they used over recent decades are gradually dissolving. Two new megatrends are drastically changing the market. On the one hand, there is sustainability, which is causing the ever-increasing replacement of the combustion engine by the e...

Code
This repository includes a component library for total vehicle simulations. It is developed at the Institute of Automotve Engineering and contains all relevant components for longitudinal full vehicle simulations. The repoisitory includes one longitudinal simulation model, which is parameterized with a parameter set of a real prototype vehicle and...
Conference Paper
Since various machine parameters of existing electric machines are subject to confidentiality agreements of manufacturers, machine data sheets are often incomplete, making an accurate simulation and validation of machine design tools difficult but inevitable. Therefore, an electric machine design tool for permanent magnet synchronous machines (PSM)...
Conference Paper
The automotive development process is highly complex and is getting more diverse with increasing possibilities in modeling, computing and analyzing. Especially in the electric vehicle sector, an increasing number of simulation methods exist, dealing with areas like propulsion systems, power supply and thermal management. In order to combine the kno...
Article
Although the importance of crash compatibility has been highlighted as an area for further improvement in terms of passive safety, the way in which partner-protection is assessed is still an unresolved problem. Some assessment approaches have been proposed that are based on the structural interaction between the test vehicle and the barrier. Howeve...

Development processes in the automotive sector are very complex and different. Especially at the beginning there are many freedoms to realize the vehicle requirements. In order to compare the different possibilities, it is important to estimate many properties of the end product as early as possible. For this reason, in the area of concept development system simulation is an essential tool that is of great importance for the quality of the research and development work. Different simulation software and the different modeling possibilities result in a rapidly growing number of application- and user-specific simulation models from different disciplines. In this complex and widely distributed model landscape, the models are not uniformly documented. In addition, specific knowledge is required for the use, such as the scope of the model, or the assumptions made for simplifications. For these reasons, the models are only limited use and can only conditionally further developed and improved. As there is currently no cross-group information exchange, this leads to isolated solutions and synergetic effects are given away. Therefore, there is a need to work together on interdisciplinary and cross-domain simulation projects. To solve these problems, the Institute of Automotive Technology, together with the Institute of Internal Combustion Engines of the Technical University of Munich and TESIS DYNAware, is launching the Sim2gether research and development project funded by the Free State of Bavaria. The aim of this research project is to improve the interdisciplinary simulation methodology used in research and industry during the development process. For this purpose, the interactive use of simulation tools as a means of communication and the cross-domain networking of different simulation models will be improved. To accomplish this, metadata management and consistent documentation is needed, addressing the simplifications, scope, and limitations of the model. To this end, an open source model library will be created at the Institute of Automotive Engineering, which serves as the basis for a collaboration platform for interdisciplinary simulations. This platform should enable cross-domain and interdepartmental networking.
