Thermal Systems Modeling and Simulation (Part 3 of 3): Powertrain Technologies & Climate Control Simulation
(Session Code: HX102)

Room 112 A  1:00 p.m.

The Thermal Systems Modeling and Simulation session focusses on state of the art simulation technologies for modeling thermal systems and their application in the development and optimization of vehicle thermal management and fuel economy. The papers in the session will range from empirical, 1D modeling methods to three dimensional CFD models as well as coupled methods.

Organizers - Ales Alajbegovic, Exa Corp.; Jason Aaron Lustbader, National Renewable Energy Laboratory; Gursaran D. Mathur, CalsonicKansei North America Inc.; Kumar Srinivasan, Chrysler Group LLC
