Dynamic Fusion

Romax Technology has launched Dynamic Fusion, a new way to significantly improve the speed and accuracy of component, gearbox and driveline Multibody Dynamic (MBD) analysis.

Developed in direct response to customer demand, Dynamic Fusion addresses some of the key historical issues with MBD analysis, long seen as a crucial part of the driveline design and development process.

Romax Technology product manager and technologist, Mikey Platten, explained: ‘In the past, users have typically had to create MBD models from scratch, a process that is not only slow but also prone to inaccuracy, rendering the analysis results of limited use. Equally, they have generally been unable to leverage any of the engineering intelligence from the previous development and analysis work already completed.

‘Finally, legacy approaches have typically not addressed users’ need for more process-based model building to allow them to create a model to simulate a specific issue such as driveline shunt, rattle or gear whine, for example.’

Dynamic Fusion solves these key challenges by enabling MBD users to directly import models from the company’s RomaxDesigner and Concept solutions and automatically create new, optimised models for high accuracy analysis in almost any in-house or packaged applications.
