Royal Enfield is the oldest motorcycle brand in continuous production, having created its first motorcycle in 1901. A division of Eicher Motors Limited, Royal Enfield has pioneered the mid-size motorcycle segment in India with its unique and distinctive “modern classic” line of motorcycles. The company has continued to excel in the twenty-first century, in large part by harnessing the power of HPC to run its computer-aided engineering (CAE) software.
Royal Enfield uses Altair OptiStruct™ for non-linear implicit finite element (FE) analysis and Altair Radioss™ for explicit FE analysis. These FE models require extensive processing for completing structural analysis. Engineers were running FE analysis workloads on workstations, however the length of time required for processing was becoming a serious bottleneck in the design process.
