Solutions for the Automotive Sector
Use engineering simulation software to validate performance and reliability of a new design and the validity of its control in order to reduce experimental tests, costs and development times.
Consumer Analysis, Emissions, Power Management
Quickly build virtual prototypes of different design layouts of the propulsion system;
Compare the dynamic performance of each design, on the same mission profile, by extrapolating emissions and consumption trends;
Analyse all the vehicle systems in the same virtual model, by simulating energy requirements, absorption, dissipation;
Identify the best trade-off between performance and efficiency.
3D Fluid Dynamics Simulation
Study how your product interacts with fluids.
Analyse the fluid-dynamic and thermal behaviour of the product, directly from the CAD and with the automatic meshing system proposed by FloEFD.
Study fluid mechanics through its main variables: pressure, temperature, density, speed, viscosity.
Multi-physical Dynamic Simulation 0D / 1D
Predict the dynamic performance of any vehicle system (climate, suspension, steering, brakes, transmission, engine and auxiliary systems…) with Simcenter Amesim’s model-based simulation.
Evaluate the response of a new design to given operating conditions, before a prototype is available.
Frequency Analysis for Vibration Study
Study the layout dynamic behaviour when it’s subjected to vibration.
Deepen the causes of unwanted mechanical vibrations or the ones due to fluid-structure couplings.
Avoid mechanical resonance phenomena by identifying the proper frequencies of the system components and unwanted couplings.
Model and virtually simulate new hybrid propulsion architectures, by evaluating the performance of different configurations in series or in parallel:
- identify the system energy needs with according to the desired performance;
- choose the optimal battery size, simulate the behaviour on the driving cycle taking into account aging phenomena;
- identify optimal control in order to maximize efficiency and reduce fuel consumption.
Virtual Validation Controls
Create high-fidelity plant models of the physical and dynamic behaviour of vehicle systems, with model-based simulation software compatible with real time.
Combine the physical model with the control software, verify through the virtual model behaviour, the goodness of the control during a work cycle.
