Three-Dimensional Simulation of the Flow in a Torque Converter 910800

This paper describes a simulation study of the internal fluid flow of a torque converter. The study was conducted by using the steady-interaction technique to connect the boundaries between neighboring elements. This technique averages the flow variables in the circumferential direction on the connecting boundary surfaces. A comparison of computational results with experimental data gives an estimate of the accuracy in predicting torque converter performance with this method.
