The selected papers presented here emphasize the involvement of engineering science and mathematical modelling in rapidly solving complex problems which arise in the automotive industry. Chapters review the analysis of vehicle dynamics and control by automatic software generation and algebraic manipulation codes. Authors also discuss the application of control theory to four-wheel steering, active and semi-active suspensions, continuously variable transmission, and dynamometer control. Further chapters review the modelling of acoustical phenomena in the context of automotive noise, computer-induced changes in the artistic rendering of design elements, and the mathematical definition of surface features such as pockets, channels, and ribs. There are also chapters on the accurate and realistic prediction of air-flow and temperature characteristics to aid engine design, the simulation of flame propagation and knock, and using component models to predict vehicle heating and cooling. The final four chapters discuss finite element analysis of anisotropic deformation and its use in, for example, analyzing pressing or stamping operations; the sophisticated thermomechanical modelling of electrical components; and using well-tried algorithms to predict fatigue, and thus produce non-failing components. The volume will be an important source of up-to-date information for applied mathematicians, engineers, and researchers in the automotive industry, as well as for advanced students in engineering and mathematics.

Mathematics in Industrial Problems

This is the tenth volume in the series "Mathematics in Industrial Prob lems. " The motivation for these volumes is to foster interaction between Industry and Mathematics at the "grass roots level;" that is, at the level of specific problems. These problems come from Industry: they arise from models developed by the industrial scientists in ventures directed at the manufacture of new or improved products. At the same time, these prob lems have the potential for mathematical challenge and novelty. To identify such problems, I have visited industries and had discussions with their scientists. Some of the scientists have subsequently presented their problems in the IMA Seminar on Industrial Problems. The book is based on the seminar presentations and on questions raised in subse quent discussions. Each chapter is devoted to one of the talks and is self contained. The chapters usually provide references to the mathematical literature and a list of open problems which are of interest to the industrial scientists. For some problems a partial solution is indicated briefly. The last chapter of the book contains a short description of solutions to some of the problems raised in the previous volume, as well as references to papers in which such solutions have been published. The speakers in the Seminar on Industrial Problems have given us at the IMA hours of delight and discovery.

Efficient transfer between science and society is crucial for their future development. The rapid progress of information technology and computer systems offers a large potential and new perspectives for solving complex problems. Mathematical modelling and simulation have become important tools not only in scientific investigations but also in analysing, planning and controlling technological and economic processes. Mathematics, imbedded in an interdisciplinary concept, has become a key technology. The book covers the results of a variety of major projects in industrial mathematics following an initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. All projects are collaborations of industrial companies and university-based researchers, and range from automotive industry to computer technology and medical visualisation. In general, the projects presented in this volume prove that new mathematical ideas and methods can be decisive for the solution of industrial and economic problems.

This unique book presents real world success stories of collaboration between mathematicians and industrial partners, showcasing first-hand case studies, and lessons learned from the experiences, technologies, and business challenges that led to the successful development of industrial solutions based on mathematics. It shows the crucial contribution of mathematics to innovation and to the industrial creation of value, and the key position of mathematics in the handling of complex systems, amplifying innovation. Each story describes the challenge that led to the industrial cooperation, how the challenge was approached and how the solutions were achieved and implemented. When brought together, they illustrate the versatile European landscape of projects in almost all areas of applied mathematics and across all business sectors. This book of success stories has its origin in the Forward Look about Mathematics and Industry that was funded by the European Science Foundation (ESF) and coordinated by the Applied Mathematics Committee of the European Mathematical Society (EMS). In each of these success stories, researchers, students, entrepreneurs, policy makers and business leaders in a range of disciplines will find valuable material and important lessons that can be applied in their own fields.​
