Embraer and Eve to utilise Dassault Systèmes’ simulation technology

Dassault Systèmes and Embraer have announced that Dassault Systèmes’ simulation technology has been utilised to simulate, analyse and test virtually Eve Air Mobility’s electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

Dassault Systèmes’ SIMULIA PowerFLOW application has provided robust and industry-proven fluid dynamics simulation to predict real-world operating conditions, allowing Embraer and Eve’s engineers to evaluate how the aircraft flies and test its sound emission.

“One of the main advantages of eVTOL aircraft is that they are electrically powered and a more sustainable option than combustion-powered aircraft. However, they are meant to operate in urban areas, making noise reduction a key driver in their design. SIMULIA fluid dynamics applications will enable Embraer and Eve to experience and optimise the most critical parts of their eVTOL aircraft in a virtual environment,” said David Ziegler, vice-president, Aerospace & Defence Industry, Dassault Systèmes.

Embraer and Eve have been working in collaborative efforts with global partners in line with the commitment to safely provide more reliable, affordable, sustainable, integrated and human-centric Urban Air Mobility (UAM) solutions.

“Numerical validated models have demonstrated accuracy when compared with experimental results and have helped accelerate product definition,” said Micael Gianini, Interiors, Noise and Vibration senior manager at Embraer. “The human-centred design ensures the safety, accessibility, and comfort of passengers, the pilot, and the community by minimising noise.”

In July 2023, Embraer and Eve announced that Eve’s first eVTOL production facility will be located in the city of Taubaté, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. The company has begun assembly of its first full-scale eVTOL prototype, which will be followed by a test campaign in 2024. Eve’s eVTOL is scheduled to begin deliveries and enter into service in 2026.
