Vehicle Thermal Management System Performance Modeling with System Level Fluid Simulation
On-demand Web Seminar
Predicting fluid flow and heat transfer in vehicle cooling and connected fluid systems is important for achieving product efficiency performance goals. Using 1D system level fluid simulation engineers can model interactions between different fluid circuits with input from different engineering teams allowing early stage rapid assessment of performance. Applicable to both traditional IC configurations or for hybrid and electric vehicles thermal management, it is a versatile tool for saving considerable later stage development and testing costs.
This online seminar is a guide to applying system level fluid simulation software to vehicle thermal management. It expands on initial configuration and component sizing studies, through to setting up and interpreting transient thermal simulation results to evaluate drive cycle performance. The use of 3D CFD alongside system level fluid simulation is discussed.
