Optimization Analysis in Utility Vehicle / Golf Car Simulation 2006-01-3457

Applying FEA optimization analysis in our utility vehicle and golf car virtual prototyping has proven very useful in accelerating time to market for new product, and reducing R&D cost. This article looks at reducing manufacturing costs, correlating FEA model with field test data and diagnosing field failure root causes. The cost reduction application uses topological analysis for preliminary design and uses Goal Driven Optimization with six independent factors corresponding to two separate loads for final dimension determination.
A parametric model is the basic requirement for DOE. The model can be imported from CAD directly, and it can also be created after non-parametric geometry or the initial FEA file is imported.
