Design and Partitioning of Dynamic Systems

Duration2 SWS
TermWintersemester 2021/22
Language of instructionEnglish


At the end of the module the students are able to: - quantitatively design and partition vibrating systems - partition dynamic problems in subsystems and combine them again to an entire system - apply design synthesis methods for simple dynamic problems - apply their knowledge of analysis and synthesis methods to new engineering problems - apply analysis and synthesis methods to the concept phase of automotive design


- Numerical treatment in the time and frequency domain - Application issues with numerical treatment of time and frequency domain - Partitioning procedure of vibrating systems – from Monolithic to Co-Simulation - Decomposition technique (Dirichlet, Neumann and Robin) and numerical stability - Communication patterns between subsystem simulations - Stability assessment of partitioned versus monolithic treatment - Design synthesis methods for dynamic systems and applications - Application examples from automotive product development - The contents may be adjusted due to the progress in science
