Critical Engine Geometry Generation for Rapid Powertrain Concept Design Assessment 981090

This paper presents some of the design rules used to calculate critical geometry of engine components, and the object-oriented component hierarchy system in PET. This paper also presents parametric solid model assembling schemes used to dynamically construct an assembly of whole powertrain systems. Some examples of powertrain concept design, such as the estimation of friction, packaging, and moving component clearances, will be presented. The computational efficiency of this concept design method will be compared to traditional methods also.
