Watch our sixth part of a 7 part series.
This session demonstrates how to use test-track measurements in simulation to perform load prediction in hours instead of days.
We will show the process how to : build a virtual test rig to excite a model; perform load prediction without characterizing tires and roads; employ an iterative process for early access to vehicle loads; optimize and validate the design by balancing weight; strength and durability; and include advanced materials, weldings and additive manufactured parts in durability simulation.
Business Product Line Manager
Dr. Michael Hack is business product line manager for the durability simulation products in Siemens Digital Industries Software. He graduated in applied and computational mathematics (Diplom-Technomathematiker) at the University of Kaiserslautern in Nov. 1992. In Mai 1998 he obtained his Ph.D. The Ph.D. research was in common projects with TecMath GmbH which was acquired by LMS International in 1997. He worked at LMS in method development and as a development manager. From 2000 onwards he switched to product management. As product line manager for the durability product line in the simulation division of LMS he followed numerous research projects and published on hysteresis operators, rainflow counting, thermal fatigue, reliability, and optimization topics. When LMS was acquired by Siemens in 2013 he stayed in this role with an even stronger counterpart in the Siemens research and development teams, new research topics are fatigue of new materials, composites, and influence of new production processes like additive manufacturing.
