Oil Splash Simulations in Gearbox

Gearboxes are critical components in the transmission systems used for automotive, aerospace, and marine  applications. With the advent of electric drives, the detailed study, and analysis of gearbox lubrication and churning losses have become  even more important . A gearbox design study's fundamental requirements include understanding the lubrication aspects (oil reach), churning losses, and heat dissipation.

Simulations are crucial in providing these insights, especially in the initial design stages and troubleshooting field issues. Ansys offers solutions from finite-volume-based computation fluid dynamics (CFD) methods to Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) tools to perform such simulations. This two-part webinar series will demonstrate the mid-fidelity to high-fidelity tools and methods available to establish such studies in Ansys Fluent and Ansys LS-DYNA.
