BMW optimizes NVH properties using easy-to-calculate FEM beams

BMW presented methods for vehicle concept development based on the use of the easy-to-modify geometries from the FCM tool suite. The talk focused on the use of easy-to-calculate FEM beam models for the optimization of NVH properties, the feedback of optimized models into surfaces for FEM shell simulations, the CPU time-efficient weight minimization of the steel and aluminum bodywork for the BMW 3 series, and the optimization of acoustics of the automobile interior.
