Autonomous Vehicle Modeling & Simulation

Autonomous vehicles need to have a comprehensive understanding of their environment to drive safely and reliably. As automotive and truck OEMs and their suppliers rush to deliver highly automated vehicles, it has become clear that physical testing can never be enough to deal with all the dangerous conditions that may arise. Thus, a massive amount …

Coupled Powertrain and Vehicle Analysis

Today's vehicle and powertrain engineers face increasing challenges to meet fuel economy and drive quality targets, while at the same time keep vehicle cost reasonable. Many of the new engine technologies designed to improve fuel economy create difficulties for the noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) engineer, whose job it is to assure a certain level of comfort for the occupants.

Rigorous, Transient 3D CFD Models of Unusually Complicated Fluid Networks/Circuits

The role of fluid dynamics simulation in the design and development of various products has recently undergone what is arguably a paradigm shift due to the ability to simulate unusually complicated, multi-component, hydraulics flow circuits using three dimensional (3D) computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models.  The example shows a lubrication system model (developed using the Simerics-Sys / PumpLinx CFD software) for a 16 cylinder reciprocating internal combustion engine.  This represents an advance in system-level modeling of hydraulic fluid networks over the current state of the art which is a blend of zero and one-dimensional models.  This also represents continued progress in the role of CFD from the traditional component level modeling to system level modeling.  System level modeling provides insight into interactions between components.  Finally, it is equally important that model setup and run times are reasonable relative to development time scales.
