NEWS: Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd Improves Vehicle Design and Time to Market with Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA Applications

  • SIMULIA applications help in fuel efficiency improvement, light weighting, passenger comfort and EMI/EMC compliance
  • The PowerFLOW CFD suite using Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM)-based flow solver help in increasing fuel efficiency through high fidelity aerodynamics simulations
  • SIMULIA applications are extensively used in powertrain and in body durability across the farm and tractor division, the electric vehicle division and the passenger vehicle division

India —November 24, 2020 — Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) at the 3DEXPERIENCE Conference 2020 India on design, modeling and simulation has announced that Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. is using SIMULIA applications at Mahindra Research Valley (MRV), Tamil Nadu to meet safety regulations, emission norms, reduce costs, improve fuel efficiency and achieve a faster time to market of vehicles. These applications include PowerFLOW Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solutions, Abaqus Unified FEA and CST Studio Suite. Mahindra & Mahindra uses these solutions to transform its vehicle design process and improve efficiency across the product development lifecycle for its portfolio of passenger vehicles, farm and tractor division and electric vehicles.

Dassault Systèmes’ SIMULIA applications enables engineers and R&D teams at MRV to enhance its engineering simulations and accurately predict real world conditions. It helps evaluate product performance and identifies potential flaws, early in the design process prior to building physical prototypes. The solutions virtually validate the vehicle performance, and optimize vehicle quality, durability and experience. With the performance trade-off analysis, simulation applications are helping MRV engineering and R&D teams to produce automobiles that are sustainable and meet global standards.

At MRV, for all our vehicles’ design, development and production, we are driven by the vision to get it ‘first time right and every time right’. Our long-term partner, Dassault Systemes’ digital simulation-based approach are valuable in this regard allowing for upfront simulation at the early-design stage when there is more flexibility for change. Further in the product development process, the realistic simulation solutions are used for virtual validation, giving us higher confidence before a regulatory test” said Sitarameswara Sarma Akella, Vice President- Automotive Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Limited. “Our R&D centers in India and US extensively used Dassault Systemes’ simulation technologies on the cloud enabling remote collaboration on important projects during the pandemic.”

We have over two decades of relationship with Mahindra & Mahindra. As a technology partner in design, engineering, simulation and manufacturing we are excited to be part of their innovation journey in India and in their global markets”, said Deepak NG, Managing Director, India, Dassault Systèmes. “Our simulation portfolio helps our automotive customers align with regulatory norms like Bharat Stage Emission Standards (BSES) and Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP) resulting in lower carbon footprint and a safer, more fuel-efficient product, all within ever-shrinking product development times.”

The SIMULIA PowerFLOW CFD suite accurately and efficiently performs aerodynamic, aeroacoustics and thermal management simulations. Using the Abaqus Unified FEA, automotive companies can consider full vehicle loads, dynamic vibration, multibody systems, nonlinear static and thermal coupling for virtual testing. The CST Studio Suite – a 3D EM analysis software designs, analyzes and optimizes electromagnetic (EM) components and systems. It facilitates EM analysis like performance and placement of antennas, exposure to human body of EM field and EMI/EMC compliance that have become increasingly relevant.
