University Students - Check Out the ESTECO Design Competition!

Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally
Thursday, August 4, 2016

Test your skills in numerical analysis, simulation and testing to design the perfect race engine. The winning team will enjoy a job experience with the APRILIA Racing team, which during its young history already counts on several World Championship Awards. Competing teams will enjoy a hands-on experience and learn how to balance the use of cutting edge software technology with their analytical applied mathematics background, in the quest for the optimal design.

The design challenge consists in the design of a 4 stroke single cylinder engine through multidisciplinary optimization, usingmodeFRONTIER and 1-D simulation of the engine system with GT-Suite. Where needed, other software tools can complement the analysis The design team will concentrate on the optimization of the 1-D engine model respecting the overall engine specifications, identifying objectives and constraints to the problem to reach the best engine performances possible.
