Abstract


Application of mathematical modelling and numerical methods is a key element of optimum vehicle development process. Upfront CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) simulations of vehicle attributes are required to select designs that meet vehicle attribute targets and legal requirements. CAE is an attractive approach to predict and optimize the performance of the vehicle, and to make decisions in terms of attribute trade-offs before the vehicle prototypes are available. Even though there are many commercial software packages available, the task of correlation of the CAE model to vehicle test conditions is not a trivial task. In this paper, a systematic correlation methodology starting from subsystem level to full vehicle level is presented. Full vehicle correlation is demonstrated on Powertrain Idle NVH evaluation. Correlation results show that simulation model is highly correlated to the subsystem and vehicle level test data and, therefore it can be reliably used in the product development cycle.
