Green cae - for tomorrow's mobility
Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart - asc(s e.V. - is a transfer platform setting trends for the interaction of science and industry in Europe. It offers its members a full range of services and a transfer of know-how which is beneficial for each individual project member. Its goal is to drive future-oriented vehicle development by utilising CAE simulation and optimisation processes. Especially in the field of CO 2 reduction, these cooperation projects enable important improvements for the entire automobile industry. The key fields of asc(s - activity can be ascribed to the following four knowledge areas: 1. Automobile & Environment 2. Modelling & Simulation 3. Numerics & Mathematics 4. Information & Communication asc(s supports its members in the realisation of their projects from beginning to end. asc(s takes on project coordination and control, checks if targets are reached and ensures the implementation of developed methods in industry. Projects are handled as cooperations between project partners and asc(s. The main aspects regarding the development of CAE simulation processes are the optimisation of flow and combustion processes in engines, reduction of vehicle weight through innovative lightweight body structures, assessment of new aerodynamic improvements for reducing tractive resistance, and layout and optimisation of e-mobility drive and vehicle concepts.
