Featured Case Study Using HEEDS Optimization Software: Cooling Jacket Gasket Hole Design

Comparison of DOE and Direct Search Approach

 

Challenge:HEEDS software_Cooling Jacket Gasket Hole Design

  1. Minimize pressure drop across water jacket
  2. 24 gasket hole geometric design variables

 

Constraints:

  1. Peak head temperature < 250 °C
  2. Cylinder to cylinder variation in peak liner and dome temperatures < 10 °C
  3. Peak liner temperature < 200 °C
  4. Peak coolant temperature < 150 °C
  5. Peak velocity of coolant in head and block water jackets < 10 m/s

 

Results:

  1. 20% fewer design evaluations compared to DOE (200 vs. 250)
  2. 10% reduction in pressure drop relative to DOE-optimized design
  3. 7% reduction in max head temperature
  4. 16 feasible designs in highly constrained design space

 

With this case study, we hope to Show the result of applying HEEDS to challenging powertrain problem. It also serves to Confirm that fewer simulation evaluations are needed with HEEDS direct search than with traditional DOE/RSM methods
 
You might be thinking: “Of course you can search directly without simplifying the problem and can find better designs, but you’d need many more simulation evaluations than is practical.”
But this is simply not true with HEEDS.  You actually need less than you typically need to perform a Design-of-Experiments and build an accurate response surface model (DOE/RSM).
 
Consider the problem shown here of finding the best gasket design for an engine cooling jacket. There are 24 design variables involving the location and size of gasket holes. This real problem from an auto OEM has a number of very challenging constraints involving peak temperatures and velocities.
 
The auto OEM needed 250 evaluations in a DOE approach to building a reasonable response surface that was subsequently used to find a good design.
HEEDS was then applied to the same problem.  HEEDS needed only 200 evaluations to “directly” search the design space effectively and it found a design that was 10% better in terms of pressure drop and 7% better in terms of max head temperature. In other words, HEEDS needed 20% fewer design evaluations to find a 7-10% better design than delivered by the traditional design exploration approach.

Discover Better Designs, Faster! with HEEDS Optimization Software

Innovative Products and Technologies

HEEDS software_workflow_Multidisciplinary Design Exploration Platformn

To sum up, the enabling technologies of HEEDS, Let me explain a bit more about our technologies and how they enable you to find better designs, faster. The HEEDS Design Exploration Platform is applicable to any industry and includes portals, or interfaces, to standard commercial CAD and CAE software.  It also includes a Python programming language for extensibility and advanced visualization tools.

As described earlier, HEEDS includes four enabling technologies.  The first is process automation.  HEEDS provides a drag-and-drop interface to make it simpler for engineers to define any process workflow. They can include internal and commercial modeling and simulation tools based on 1D, 2D, or 3D paradigms.
Once the workflow is defined, the user can push a single button to evaluate one complete virtual prototype.

Next, HEEDS makes it simple for the user to assign each of the tasks in the process workflow to the most appropriate local or remote computation resources and operating systems.  So, for instance, single or multi-core Windows computers can be assigned to CAD and less-intensive CAE simulations, while multi-core Linux clusters or cloud resources can be assigned to compute-intensive simulations.  HEEDS works across operating systems and networks to orchestrate all task execution and to manage data interaction.

HEEDS software_What our customers say

“HEEDS has been an indispensable tool for Trek to continue redefining best-in-class products. Its algorithm has enabled us to explore the multimodal design space at unparalleled efficiency. Whether it’s optimizing the stiffness, reducing aerodynamic drag, and/or fine-tuning the weight, HEEDS can help Trek engineering to convert fresh ideas into the next generation products that maximize performance.” 

Mio Suzuki, Trek Bicycle Corporation

“Pratt & Miller has evaluated multiple design exploration tools, and HEEDS, with its SHERPA algorithm, is the only one that can solve our highly constrained models.”
Jesper Slattengren, Pratt & Miller Engineering

“Since our group adopted the practice of combining HEEDS software with simulation two years ago, the strategic value that we can provide to the BD product development community has accelerated dramatically.”  
— Anita Bestelmeyer, Becton Dickinson

Features & Benefits of FEA Consulting

An actual physical engineering test can reveal you of an occurrence of a failure in a product or structure, however, this inefficient testing and development process is often Costly, takes up precious product development time and in many cases, does not really reveal the real cause of the failure.
With our FEA consulting services, we can help you to answer to several questions that a real-world test simply can’t.
This includes

1. Identification of Areas with Excess Material to save on unnecessary material and weight.
Having an iterative and intelligent FEA analysis process which helps engineers to push the boundaries to optimize engineering designs that maximize strength and minimize cost
2. Determination of the product structure’s current Margin of safety
