Multiphysics Simulation Optimizes Design of EGR Coolers - Application Brief

Exhaust gas recovery (EGR) coolers represent a very difficult design challenge, primarily because multiple physics are involved in evaluating their performance under thermomechanical cyclic loading. Using conventional simulation tools to simulate this condition requires a time-consuming manual or script-driven process to map data between simulation tools. ANSYS provides a complete suite of multiphysics simulation tools integrated together in the ANSYS Workbench environment that makes it possible to simulate the full range of EGR cooler operating conditions while data are seamlessly moved from one tool to the next.
