Simulation Process of the Heat Protection of a Full Vehicle 2012-01-0635

In this paper the latest status of the Vehicle Thermal Management (VTM) simulation at the Mercedes-Benz Car Group is shown. First of all VTM is nowadays a routine simulation application and secondly it is embedded in a standard process which starts with the CAD data collection and ends with standard reporting of the simulation results and thirdly VTM is now an integrated simulation application in terms of VTM includes the classical underhood-underbody analysis, the analysis of electric/electronic components, the brake temperature analysis and last not least the thermal comfort of passengers. There is also a close link to the tests of vehicle hardware. Beside the operational simulation process there is a process installed which guarantees good quality of the results.
