Shape tomorrow's mobility

Automotive engineers use MATLAB, Simulink, Comsol Multiphysics, and Speedgoat-3-1

The global automotive industry is undergoing dramatic change due to emerging market development, the rapid rise of new technologies, increasing pressure to innovate, environmental concerns, and shifting consumer preferences.

Automotive engineers must constantly look for innovative approaches to shorten the product development life cycle and gain an advantage over their competitors. Modeling and simulation play a crucial role in this endeavor.

MathWorks®, COMSOL ®, and Speedgoat products can help engineers streamline their development processes and deliver products that minimize environmental impact while improving operational safety, increasing performance, and delivering new comfort levels.

Engineers use our products to:

  • Investigate design concept for production
  • Optimize design for best performance
  • Develop virtual prototypes and digital twins
  • Couple electromagnetics with heat transfer, structural mechanics, fluid flow, and other physical phenomena
  • Test different geometries, thermocouple configurations, and material selection
  • Build, solve, and post-process models
  • Perform cosimulation with Simulink
  • Simulate complete acoustics on the basis of a vehicle’s CAD model
  • Build simulation apps
