Development of Unified Exhaust System Supported by CAE Software Programs 2010-36-0473
In spite of the changes in vehicle performance, one of the current challenges is to get components applicable to different vehicles with no changes in the project. Simulations made with specific numerical programs enable this process of unifying components, for different platforms, to be applied to the exhaust system. The projects proposed, based on the results obtained with the simulation programs, were tested experimentally. It was proven that the results of the simulation proposals correlated to the experimental results. This ultimately provided simplification to the project, with gains in logistics and productivity. Besides the technological process involved, possibilities to reduce costs can also be considered.
