Free Simulating Systems Workshop for Powertrainto Reduce Emissions and Fuel Consumption

Posted By: Brigid Blaschak
Date:Wed, 29 Oct 2014, 9:27 p.m.

United States, December 3, 2014

WHEN: December 3, 2014

WHERE: Novi (Detroit Metro area), Michigan

We are pleased to announce a complimentary workshop being held in the Metro Detroit area on how to optimize your powertrain design. Presenters will look at how to apply Multidisciplinary Design Exploration methods to look at coolant and oil flows as well as heat transfer through the engine to reduce peak temperatures and prevent failure.

Initiatives shown during this event will focus on the virtual powertrain simulation to help provide quick and early design testing, thus reducing cost and time of development. This workshop concentrates on how simulation impacts design and how to improve your simulations through Multidisciplinary Design Exploration.

Guest speaker: Brian Lizotte, Ford Motor Company, will present "Automotive Turbochargers Compressor Surge Prediction using Computational Fluid Dynamics."

In addition, simulation experts will explore the following topics through presentations and demonstrations:

* Piston bowl optimization * Engine conjugate heat transfer (CHT) including coolant flow * Cosimulation to reduce thermal transient runtime * Applying adjoint solver on intake/exhaust systems * Crank case ventilation * Turbochargers * Water pump optimization

If you are a CFD user in the automotive industry and want to improve your productivity to discover better powertrain designs faster, this workshop will be beneficial. Sign up today at
