In “Simulation Tools for Engine Design” engineers from Ricardo Software discuss the use of simulation software in new powertrain development. Another engineer, this time from General Motors, talks about how simulation tools helped them solve the challenge of fuel flow reversion while designing the new turbocharged Cadillac V6 engine.
This episode highlights:
- The challenge of simulating complex and combined systems in one vehicle
- An example of how a library of components in a software package can be chosen to form a specific system and analyzed
- How computational fluid dynamics simulation tools were used to help redesign a new planum
