Robust Automotive Lighting Development

ANSYS’s comprehensive solution for automotive lighting solves for radiation, convection and condensation inside lighting modules, as well as thermal–structural durability issues. Features include:

  • Discrete ordinates and other radiation models: Detailed computation of radiation transmission, absorption and specular and diffusive reflection
  • Defogging module
  • Detailed modeling of LED light bulbs
  • Drag-and-Drop Multiphysics for comprehensive coupling of radiation–convection–conduction–structural–fatigue effects for thermal–structural durability computation
