PackAssistant: Software for fast And optimal container load planning

Making the best use of container space can save both transportation and storage costs. One simply needs to find the right way to arrange the objects to be packed in the available container space. Experienced packing planners usually spend a lot of time meticulously arranging and packing parts with complex shapes but, nevertheless, in most cases they will not achieve the same packing density as realized with ­PackAssistant.
The PackAssistant software calculates the optimal packing arrangement of identical parts in standard containers by using 3D designs (CAD). This also works for parts with complex shapes, as the software will identify and take the individual shape of the object into account.

Computer-Aided Robust Design

We call a design robust if small changes in the initial conditions will only have minimal impact on the results. The robustness and quality of production processes and products suffer from variations occurring in a range of parameters relating to defining features such as material properties­, process parameters, variations in geometry. ­Analyzing and controlling the effects of these variations helps in the identification of robust and optimal settings under realistic conditions.

Virtual Material Design

Virtual Material Design

Many of the challenges of the 21st century – such as the development of new and improved energy systems, environmentally-friendly systems, and improved ICT technologies for health and mobility – will rely on the availability of a new generation of materials. That those materials can be designed and created depends on interdisciplinary research teams from science and application-oriented engineering producing new technologies in the areas of nanotechnology and material science.

Why Fluid-Structure-Interaction Models are so important to win the next Race

With Formula 1 being one of the most popular motorsports on the globe, there is always high pressure to provide excellent performance as a way to retain existing and attract new audiences. As the FIA regulations are quite clear-cut in terms of limitations leading to a close competition, engineers are digging for the smallest advantages. This leads to taking interactions of CFD with other physical effects into account to get a complete understanding of all effects involved. MpCCI CouplingEnvironment from Fraunhofer SCAI has been integrated into the design workflows of leading F1 teams and is successfully used to optimize the aerodynamic behavior of the car while taking the structural behavior into account.
