Webinar Series: Recent Advances in Automotive Simulation
Automakers and suppliers around the world increasingly rely on ANSYS for single-physics and multiphysics simulation solutions, for both component and systems level analysis. Applications range from aerodynamics, underhood thermal management, IC engine, transmission, brakes, and chassis components to the entire electric powertrain including battery, traction motor and power electronics. In this webinar series, ANSYS shares the latest advances in automotive-specific solutions that allow companies to thoroughly explore design alternatives under varied, real-life load conditions early in the design cycle.
PCA Engineers Limited Accelerates the Evolution of Turbochargers via Numerical Optimization and Advanced Simulation Techniques
Turbocharging the automotive internal-combustion engine has become highly topical with the trend to downsize engine capacity toward lower emissions without compromising the driver’s perception of performance and transient response. This webcast illustrates the implementation of a design-by-analysis approach in a modern, fully integrated design environment, illustrated by examples of compressor and turbine designs for small gasoline engines. Automated, numerical optimization is an emerging technology that can be deployed within such a system on several levels to eliminate much of the manual iteration, and its usefulness and implementation are described. Also, illustrations of higher-fidelity simulation are included, and their role in the design process explained. In addition, future prospects are discussed. To what extent can an empirical background in turbomachinery design become redundant in the designs of new machines? What are the major technical challenges for the developers of advanced design and analysis techniques? Webcast attendees will be invited to interact with the speakers during the program's live Q&A segment.

Accelerating Development of EV Batteries Through Computer-Aided Engineering
Developing low-cost, high-energy, safe and long-lasting batteries is crucial for the wide adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and ultimately reduces petroleum consumption and polluting emissions. Computer aided engineering (CAE) tools could accelerate the development, design, and prototyping of batteries. The Vehicle Technology Program in the Department of Energy has launched Computer Aided Engineering of Automotive Batteries (CAEBAT) to work with national labs, industry and software vendors to develop sophisticated software. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is the coordinator of the CAEBAT activity and is working with a number of companies, including ANSYS, to develop these models and tools to help improve and accelerate battery design and production.
Join us for this webinar in which we will present an overview of both CAEBAT and the Multi-Scale Multi-Dimensional (MSMD) model, a predictive computer simulation of Li-ion batteries. We'll also present results that show the utility of the model by the impact of design parameters on performance.
