Powertrain manufacturers operate in a highly competitive market and are under pressure to produce fuel efficient engines and decrease emissions to meet stringent fuel economy legislation. 

Development of conventional and hybrid/electric powertrains are complex. Simcenter solutions from 1D to 3D and Engineering Services enable engineers to achieve the best compromises while balancing attributes such as performance, thermal management & drivability.  This webinar will focus on how 3D CFD is used to design the next generation of powertrains.

To reduce time to market and design costs while meeting customer and regulatory expectations, OEM’s need to reduce the overall number of physical prototypes. They do this by increasing the use of simulation methods to evaluate powertrain components and systems, test virtually and reduce physical testing.  This webinar will demonstrate through success stories where OEM’s have applied these tools to develop their future powertrains.

Topics we will cover include:

  • Simulation based design through the application of a Digital Twin
  • Conventional powertrain development including in-cylinder combustion
  • Electric vehicle solutions for battery pack and electric motors
