Developments in Automotive Electromagnetic Modelling 980305
MIRA is involved in a number of activities which are aimed at integrating electromagnetic modeling techniques into established CAD and CAE strategies used by automotive manufacturers and component suppliers for vehicle design. This paper describes the objectives of the work, the major activities and the progress to date. It includes a review of user requirements identified during earlier work, the results of the validation activities being undertaken and the progress with developing a strategy for integration of electromagnetic modeling into vehicle design processes. The results of a preliminary study into the use of high-performance computing are also reported.
