Sketching new drive system concepts using the fastest tool on the market

Presented by: Kristian Kouumdjieff, Product Manager 

Success at the concept design stage can make or break a product. A large portion of the product life cycle costs are committed during this phase, and elements of the design will be frozen, preventing later changes.

The sorts of decisions that designers face at this stage have traditionally been solved using a combination of reliance on rare expert knowledge and tools such as Excel, CAD or even hand calculations. But these tools can be slow, unreliable and error prone: harnessing the full power of simulation technology at this stage can unlock vast potential.

Romax Concept is a very powerful early stage simulation tool, which provides an easy-to-use modelling and analysis environment for transmission and driveline layout, design and sizing. As easy as drawing with pen and paper, but with a powerful analysis engine for prediction of durability, NVH and efficiency behaviour, Concept is the perfect tool for early stage drive system design.

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how Concept empowers users to investigate multiple designs at an early stage. With Concept, you can model complex drivetrain layouts in minutes, instantly assess packaging, system kinematics, loads and more. As you gradually add more detail, you can analyse your model for durability, efficiency, NVH, cost and weight, perform gear ratio optimisation, select, size and rate components, and even add vehicle information to evaluate full system efficiency over drive cycles

What you will learn:

  • How to fully explore the design space and take advantage of this key stage in development
  • How to make confident decisions to ensure you take the right design forward to more detailed analysis
  • How to integrate your concept design work into a streamlined development process
