  • Underhood thermal management involves accurate prediction of front end cooling and component temperatures in the vehicle

Thermal management involves accurate prediction of front end cooling and component temperatures in the vehicle and CD-adapco offers industry-leading solutions that have been adopted by most of the major OEMs and automotive suppliers as part of their design process.

CD-adapco’s flagship code, STAR-CCM+, provides a single integrated environment to go from CAD to results in a streamlined manner, increasing productivity and efficiency and freeing up engineer time for analysis.

CD-adapco was the first company to complete an underhood simulation in the early 90’s.

Since then, the introduction of STAR-CCM+ with automated surface wrapper, models for heat exchanger, fans, radiation and fully-integrated, automated process has proven to be a game-changer in vehicle thermal management.

The automated surface wrapper has enabled our customers to cut-down on their pre-processing time by up to 70% compared to their previous process.

STAR-CCM+ can turn-around a complex front end air flow problem with hundreds of components in 24 hours going from CAD to solution.

On any vehicle, thermal management issues vary in components and scale. A few areas where STAR-CCM+ offers simulation solutions (conduction, convection, radiation, CHT) are:

  • Full powertrain CHT
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Electronics Cooling
  • Brake Cooling
  • Engine Mount
  • Steering System
  • Exhaust System
  • Oil Circuit
  • Engine Structure
