Turbocharger Design and Analysis Solutions

From 2012 Automotive Simulation World Congress: With recent growing interest in turbocharger design and analysis, ANSYS has developed a suite of application-specific, high-fidelity, productivity-enhancing tools. These provide geometric definition, enable complete physics simulation (including thermal, structural and fluid dynamics), and offer full-spectrum 1-D/2-D/3-D steady and unsteady analysis and optimization. This presentation discusses the full range of tools available, their relative utility and advantages, and recent developments. Examples include the broad range of physics and analysis types on realistic turbocharger geometries.
