Thermal Management Systems Symposium

October 4-5, 2022 | Plymouth, Michigan

Learn from Leading Edge Thinkers for Critical Problem Solving

Over one hundred Thermal Management System Symposium (TMSS) experts are working together to create one exceptional technical program – addressing the current state of thermal management systems, the impact of environmental regulatory requirements has on TMS, and the technologies being developed to meet customer requirements.  Become informed through vetted talks on technical advancements, learn from select experts through organic conversations that arise in a panel format, and hear invited keynotes offering insights that are critical to the management of thermal systems. 

This two-day program will feature essential face-to-face conversations among the entire TMSS community, all working together to overcome the biggest global challenges evolving today and in the future.

Presentations are currently in review by the event Organizing Committee. Please check back for updates. The technical program will be finalized in mid-August.

Vehicle Climate Control, Cabin Comfort, and Cabin Air Quality

TMSS200

Climate control is a defining vehicle attribute often associated with brand image. Thermal performance and quality of climate control are both critical to customer satisfaction. While the primary objective of a climate control system is to deliver thermal comfort and occupant safety with low energy consumption, there are strong design interactions with other vehicle systems. Localized comfort, secondary fluids, air quality, controls, system sizing and HVAC consumer interface are just a few of the recent advances in this rapidly developing topic area.

Powertrain Thermal Systems and Energy Management

TMSS300

Thermal Management represents one of the key aspects of the vehicle development. It ensures that the temperatures in the underhood and underbody areas are in desired ranges, that thermal systems operate as designed, and that no component operation is at risk due to excessive temperatures. This session covers the design of thermal components and systems and their vehicle integration.

Electronics Thermal Management

TMSS400

Role of electronics thermal management is crucial for development of autonomous vehicles and for future vehicle powertrain technologies. The purpose of this session is to share novel technologies, lightweight & high efficiency thermal solutions, best practices and lessons learned in the field of electronics thermal management. This session presents papers covering circuit board and vehicle electronics design, testing, simulation, and integration of electronics thermal management.

Regulatory Topics

TMSS600

Tail pipe emissions are considered one of the major factors adversely affecting the environment. There is an urgent demand in many regions of the world to reduce the carbon footprints due to transportation. Smog generated from mobility applications has crippling effects in mega urban areas. The increasing focus on fuel economy and emissions reduction have caused a rapid expansion of sustainable mobility applications. Electrification of cars and trucks will significantly reduce the dependence on the internal combustion engine using fossil fuels, leading to a significant positive impact on cleaning the environment. In this panel discussion, the focus is on the rapidly changing regulations landscape and the technological advances required to achieve the fuel economy and emissions mandates.

Thermal Simulation/Analysis/Modeling

TMSS700

The session will focus on the use of latest simulation technologies in the design and evaluation of new thermal systems and their control strategies. Contributions will focus on both 1D and 3D simulation tools as applied to steady and transient phenomenon.

Thermal Systems for Commercial and Off-Road Vehicles

TMSS800

Heavy-duty on- and off-highway vehicles face unique thermal management challenges which can be very different from the thermal challenges in other transportation sectors. This session focuses on topics and technologies specific to thermal management for these vehicles.

Waste Heat Recovery

TMSS900

Increases in energy cost combined with more stringent emissions standards has made the need to increase overall energy efficiency a critical part of the vehicle development process. The capture and reuse of waste energy is a way of improving overall energy efficiency. This session deals with methods for waste heat recovery and its use for improved energy efficiency.
