is my pleasure to bring you the latest news from Red Cedar
Technology. We realize it's been a while since you've heard from us
through email communication so it is my intention to keep you
informed on a regular basis of all the HEEDS happenings.
HEEDS Smashes Barriers on Multi-Objective Design
Dr. Kalyanmoy Deb, the leading global authority on
multi-objective optimization and decision-making, has become an
exclusive consultant to Red Cedar Technology to help drive the
advancement of HEEDS. Dr. Deb's latest research on improving the
distribution of competing designs along Pareto fronts is now
included as the NSGA-III algorithm in the latest release of HEEDS.
We think you'll like how it helps you discover great designs!
Kalyan Deb, Professor
Bicycle Is Leading the Performance Revolution
Trek Bicycle has
been breaking barriers of innovation ever since its inception in
1976. The addition of HEEDS to their R&D process certainly
emboldens the commitment in pushing the boundaries of cycling engineering
even further. Mio Suzuki of Trek will showcase HEEDS applications
at next week's STAR
Drives Marine Hull Design
design requires a challenging balancing act between construction
costs and operational efficiency. Naval architects strive to
minimize hull drag while maximizing propulsive efficiency with
limits on cavitation, erosion, and up-front material costs.
Damian Tatum of Downey Engineering will discuss how they
use HEEDS to automatically drive hull form geometry changes at
next week's STAR
Global Conference in San Diego, California.
Maneuvers Motorsports Set-Up and Driving Strategy
HEEDS has been
used by the Triple 8 BTCC race team to define best vehicle set-up
and driving strategy using VI-CarRealTime and Adams. We recently
held a Motorsports seminar at Charlotte International Speedway to
highlight their success. Johnny Engstrom will present driver path
strategy for race car lap timing at the upcoming VI-grade
Users Conference on April 15-16 in Trieste, Italy.
