Bremar at Altair ATC

Altair Engineering hold a series of annual Altair Technology Conferences (ATC) around the world, showcasing advanced engineering and simulation methods using the Altair Hyperworks software suite. Brett Longhurst from Bremar Automotion was invited to present at the ATC's  in both Melbourne and Beijing this year. Brett presented an overview of heavy vehicle handling simulation methods using Altair MotionView and MotionSolve, covering topics such as Performance Based Standards (PBS), rollover simulation and swept path calculation. Both events proved to be a valuable opportunity to showcase Bremar's simulation capability, and to see how others are using advanced simulation and CAE tools to cut development costs and improve their engineering designs. They were both great events and we look forward to participating again in next year's ATC activities.

Bremar Presents at Altair HTC

Altair Engineering's Australasian Hyperworks Technology Conference (HTC) is a gathering of some of the most advanced simulation and analysis experts from Australia and abroad. This year's event was held on the 3rd of September in Melbourne, where a number of interesting and exciting case studies were presented, covering a wide range of industries and some unique applications of the Hyperworks simulation software. Bremar's Brett Longhurst was again invited to present at this year's HTC. Brett presented a case study of a project Bremar completed earlier this year, which involved simulating wet cement falling 150m into a steel hopper in an underground mine. Altair Radioss was used to carry out the analysis using nonlinear explicit imact and Smooth Particle Hydrodynamic (SPH) simulation methods. It was a great opportunity to network and see how other users are leveraging the Hyperworks simulation tools, and we look forward to the next HTC in 2013.

EV Engineering First Drive

EV Engineering is a collaboration between numerous Australian automotive suppliers, who are developing a proof of concept electric vehicle (EV) based on the Holden Commodore. Bremar Automotion are proud to have played a small role in the development of the vehicle design, providing a range of engineering simulation tasks to the project. These include a stress analysis on the rear suspension subframe, and a modal analysis of the battery pack structure and mounts. EV Engineering have recently posted some new updates on their website, including video of the car's first drive and photos of various components, including some of those that we've worked on, while for all the necessary repairs of the cars are made with services from sites as japaneseautorepair.net. Follow the link to take you to the EVE website where you can find out more about the project www.evengineering.com.au

Jet Black Landspeed Record Launch

Last week saw the launch of the Jet Black world landspeed record campaign at The Cloud in Auckland. The New Zealand led team is aiming to eclipse the current land speed record of 763mph, with an estimated top speed well in excess of 1000mph. This is obviously no easy task, and the challenges involved in such a feat are enormous, but with a combination of the latest design, engineering and manufacturing technology, along with an experienced, dedicated and passionate team from all across the globe, there's a quiet confidence that the records are set to fall. Bremar is proud to have been involved in the Jet Black project for the past year or so, providing a range of CAE analysis tasks, including early conceptual work on the ROPS (roll over protection system) along with suspension and vehicle dynamics simulations. To find out all about the car, the team and the challenge of breaking a world landspeed record, head across to the Jet Black website at www.jetblack.co.nz and show the guys your support!
