Design and Simulation Services

Design and Simulation Services

 

Dipolo helps clients find new efficient product designs, or improve existing ones.
For our engineering services we employ advanced simulation to swiftly mock up several product configurations, test multi-attribute performance, structural resistance, NVH performance, and provide timely, reliable results, with limited expenses for the client.
Count on us to ensure viability and desired performance levels of new designs and technologies, early-on in the development cycle, or find powerful improvement solutions for current designs.

Concept Design and System Requirements

Allow Dipolo to support you in the initial phases of product conception, choosing among new designs, and technologies. Before CAD creation, 0D/1D simulation software is used in Dipolo to assess the best sizing of new components and systems. Our tools help us to verify the dynamic performance of the new design, providing data on design behavior under various working conditions and feasibility very early in the product development cycle.





Design and Virtual Analysis

Dipolo engages high skilled professional resources with manifold experience throughout product conception, development and design. Digital Mock-up, Packaging analysis, Stack-Up analysis, D-FMEA, DFSS (Design for Six Sigma) complete the wide range of design-related services.

Weight Reduction and Shape Optimization

Weight reduction and structural resistance are often analyzed down-stream in the development process, with higher expense and hurdles for the engineering department. With basic information on the loads, and the maximum package space of the component, Dipolo can provide optimized, minimum weight, structurally efficient 3D designs, while keeping manufacturing constraints, and conflicting natural modes in mind.
 
 

Multi-Objective Optimization

We use multi-objective optimization software to detect the best combination of design parameters necessary to reach desired performance levels, whilst ensuring the respect of imposed or required constraints.

Finite Element Modelling and Analysis

Structural analyses allow to simulate the behavior of complex physical systems by means of specific calculation codes (pre- and post-processing, thermal analysis, optimization). We perform: Linear / non-linear static and modal analyses, Frequency response analyses (FRF), Analysis of the behavior of advanced materials, such as Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) or Metal Matrix Composites (MMC), Post-buckling analysis Bonding failure analysis, Damage progression analysis.
 

NVH Integration

In recent years the vibro-acoustic comfort has become an increasingly important aspect in the design and development of new vehicles; this, along with the need of the industry to minimize time and engineering costs, creates the ideal scenario for the use of the CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) approach, aiming to study, forecast and solve NVH issues. Our approach combines testing activities with advanced 0D/1D linear/frequency/modal analyses and torsional vibration analyses to detect issue root causes and perform virtual tests in order to identify the model with the optimal NVH responses.

Prevent to Reaction

NVH Computer Aided Engineering allows us not only to detect faults and/ or failures of current/new designs, but also to advance implementation of changes usually carried out in later stages of the project. The advantage of avoiding lengthy and costly loops for prototyping and experimentation is clearly visible.

Problem Solving

NVH CAE proves to be a useful instrument even for problem solving. If, during the testing phase, it is easy to highlight the acoustic anomalies, it is not so easy to identify their origin, because of the complexity of a modern powertrain. On the contrary, through virtual simulations you can isolate the behavior of a single component and evaluate its proper functioning.
