NVH Simulation and Methodology

Noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) requires a precise knowledge of complex coherences and is highly relevant for automotive vehicle development. The simpulseday “NVH Simulation and Methodology” of the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart will focus this demanding field. It will show latest simulation techniques and industrial needs in the virtual vehicle development process. As impulse for the development of new simulation methods future requirements are derived and new project approaches discussed. simpulsedays are an integral part of the asc(s culture. They are used as a platform for dialog, to explore potentials and to start effective cooperations. The event stimulates the exchange between managers, software users, software developers and scientists in order to bundle know-how and achieve common goals e.g. the faster availability of efficient methods.

From Cloud to Road

The very fast growing global competitive pressure, new legal regulations and distributed development environments during the last few years lead to a complete rethink of Computer-Aided-Engineering (CAE) and High-Performance-Computing (HPC) processes. It is now a question of going further to flexible and easy to access / operate CAE work environments. Therefore Cloud-Computing and High-Performance-Computing could be an opportunity for the overall European automotive, aerospace and engineering industry, especially for innovative small and medium enterprises – SMEs. A future perspective and state-of-the art overview of CAE simulation tools and environments that are compatible with the use of Cloud-Computing and HPC will be presented and discussed.

2nd Cluster Workshop Vehicle Physics

Simulation Driven Design for CFD

The Workshop “Simulation Driven Design for Computational Fluid Dynamics” is focusing the trend of embedding CFD software into the automotive design process. Is this trend only a part of the long-lasting frontloading process or is it a paradigm shift? Who are the key roles to enable the change? How much methodological knowledge needs an engineer? How do we handle the conflict of objectives: the need of less system understanding by using a black box software or solving advanced problems by detailed understanding of solver algorithms? The workshop will give a state-of-the-art overview and offers space for discussions and new project ideas in the field of CAE method development.

Joint event of asc(s, VDC Fellbach and TU Berlin

1st Driving Simulators Symposium

What do the status quo and the future of driving simulators look like? To answer these questions the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart, the Virtual Dimension Center Fellbach and the Technische Universität Berlin have drawn up a driving simulator competence atlas (including a study) by means of a sector survey. The results of the survey will be presented to a broad professional audience at the 1st Driving Simulators Symposium. The event is aimed at decision-makers and experts in the field of virtual driving simulation.

Show Details

Ever stricter global standards together with the rising pressure on costs in the automotive industry have made an increasing shift of versatile test scenarios toward a virtual world necessary. Technology providers need to make the numerous possible solutions offered by driving simulators their own, while OEMs and suppliers have to develop them further for the future. All too often this potential is not fully exploited due to the increasing complexity of these systems and a heterogeneous hardware and software environment. With the 1st Driving Simulators Symposium the organizers want to offer science and industry a better access.

Apart from fascinating keynote speeches and the results of the study there will be an interactive session, in which a body of experts can work out future fields of action. In parallel, there is an opportunity to visit the driving simulator at the FKFS. All participants have the opportunity to submit and present new ideas for cooperative R&D projects in the field of virtual driving simulation in the form of a project appetizer (templates can be downloaded above).


Project appetizers can be submitted until 26 June 2015 at the asc(s office.

Data Analytics Symposium

Data Analytics for Automotive - an asc(s Symposium

How does the Automotive Industry take advantage of its data and how can current and future technology help us progress from monitor to predicting?

A recent Gartner study describes how operational intelligence platforms give businesses a broad, holistic and current view of their operations and how Hadoop-based data discovery enables business users to explore and find insights across diverse data.




Show Details

That data discovery makes it a compelling option to give business users access to previously hidden insights, with stream processing becoming increasingly important due to the use of numerous sensors in the automotive context.

Join our Analytics for Automotive Symposium, we will bring you up to speed with the strategies, the experiences learnt and the insights into future investments by leading enterprises on Data Analytics, and Hadoop enabled technologies.

After presentations by experts from MHP, BOSCH and T-Systems we’ll gather for dinner and further presentations followed by a panel session to give you the chance to fire your questions.

The event is set in the Römerkastell Stuttgart, a refined Roman castle with historical charm.

1st Cluster Workshop Vehicle Physics

Physics-Based Product Optimization

Is the strive for the perfect product a futile exercise or just a question of using the right method? From an engineering/technical point of view such an undertaking results in the analysis of highly complex physical effects and correlations. So far, the established methods in the computer-based testing of vehicles have been taken e.g. from the fields of multiphysics and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). But which simulation methods are going to get us closer to the optimum? To shed light on this issue, we are looking forward to your impulses and captivating discussions.
