Topology optimisation has been credited with helping reduce the Vins Motors Duecinquanta motorbike’s weight to 95kg, and a mere 85kg for its track sibling.

Vins’ Duecinquanta was designed with the help of fellow Italians Asotech and Ansys’ Mechanical software package, using simulation to iterate the motorcycle’s design, with Ansys Mechanical topology optimisation and fatigue analysis tools key to the project.

Asotech and Vins started with the Duecinquanta’s frontal node, loading the geometry of the part into Mechanical and assigned it a series of loads before defining areas of the part that needed to remain constant — like connections to other parts.

With the latest AMD Radeon Pro Enterprise driver (19.Q3) designers and engineers can experience wireless VR for select professional applications using Radeon ReLive for VR.

To deliver the untethered VR experience, the rendering is done on any ‘VR Ready’ AMD Radeon Pro WX series GPU (WX 7100, WX 8200 and WX 9100) and then streamed over WiFi to the VR headset. AMD supports the HTC Vive Focus Plus and Google Daydream.

Simcenter Madymo can simulate the impact of a car crash on the human body using Simcenter Active Human software, with the latest version now with solver run times reduced by 28 per cent over previous releases.

A Simcenter Active Human is a digital twin of an average adult male, with the model able to simulate a human body reacting to movements whilst maintaining posture with the use of a unique musculo-skeletal form guided by a control system of sensors and actuators - perfect for crash simulations.

The latest version of model has been extended with new features, including an active shoulder control, strength scaling, and drowsiness, sleep and unconsciousness modelling, helping users to accurately model human-like reactions needed for safer autonomous vehicle design.

The Create Education Project has announced its new Industry Partnership with online retail giant for all things electronic,RS Components and its own STEM platform, Imagine-X.

“STEM skills act as the perfect platform to a more socially mobile and globally impactful life. They broaden horizons, empower the disadvantaged and diversify life choices. But many young people have yet to see the ‘bigger picture’ impact these skills could have on the world,” said a spokesperson for Create.

“That’s why RS has developed Imagine-X. It links dynamic, exciting STEM subjects to real people who have used the same skills to make the world a better place. It gives teachers free curriculum-aligned resources for pupils aged 7 – 14, with one aim: helping pupils realise the far-reaching potential of STEM and their imaginations.”
