TSB (Innovate UK)
Coventry University, Unipart Eberspacher Ltd and Institute for Advanced Manufacturing Engineering
The aim of this project is to optimise the throughput of multi-disciplinary and multi-physics optimisation problems.
The project will focus on optimising a lightweight exhaust system encompassing areas of thermo-mechanical, mechanical, acoustics, vibration, manufacturing and light-weighting analysis and design in a High Performance Computing (HPC) Environment.
The project will explore the aspect of numerical accuracy and uncertainty between physical principles, theory, mathematical modelling and analytical methods. This will be achieved by “scaling” model complexities in order to “harmonise” multi-physics computing requirements, run time and accuracy.
The project aim is to investigate the potential trade-off between accuracy and the computing time in a multi-physics and multi-disciplinary optimisation context by defining, developing and validating (against physical experimentation) an optimisation algorithm for HPC computing with an ultimate aim of eliminating the use of prototypes.
DEHEMS aims to help Europe to achieve its carbon reduction targets by supporting households in reducing their energy usage through better analysis and management of their energy consumption.
The study aims to provide guidance on design of serious games that reflects the principles underpinning learning design.
