Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 With the advent of vehicle electrification, driven largely by advances in Li-ion battery technology, there is an increasing need for the type of predictive simulation tools that are commonplace in the virtual vehicle development process for classical ICE-propelled automobiles, such as crash, aerothermal and combustion simulation. Such tools are necessary in order to make the overall development effort and cost of electric traction systems competitive by reducing the test and design loops. Aiming to establish a multiscale simulation process chain...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012 DENSO Marston has been undertaking a 5-year joint R D project called ‘Validation of Future Non-Road Machines’ (VORM), co-funded by the UK government's Technology Strategy Board and One Northeast. In this project STAR-CCM+ has been extensively used as a tool to model the machine cooling system and to optimize its components. Methodology and limitations of coupling a STAR-CCM+ single stream heat exchanger model with the 1D vehicle thermal modelling program KULI were firstly explored. STAR-CCM+ dual stream heat exchanger model results were then used...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012. The cutting edge of simulation in industry is already embracing PLM integration techniques. This presentation will highlight some of the features of STAR-CCM+ that are available to get started. Examples will be provided for how this process can become seamlessly integrated with additional customized tools.
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012. This presentation will show the results of the overall migration from STAR-CD to STAR-CCM+ at the BMW Group during the years 2010-2011. After exploring the challenges present the BMW product development procss, the presentation will give an overview of the usage of computational fluid dynamics by the different departments at BMW. After that, the presentation will focus on the migration project. This will include the project objectives, the project timeline, the project structure as well as the collaboration between CD-adapco and BMW during the...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012. Simulation of complete body-in-white dipping processes demands a special mesh that is able to model complete geometrical features with the least surface cell count on the body, while representing the sheet metal thickness and ensuring mesh continuity among approximately 400 Body-in-White (BIW) components. Currently employed semi-automatic approaches for producing such meshes are often time intensive and involve huge manual effort. Therefore, a new meshing methodology is developed in STAR-CCM+ with the help of Java automation API and pipeline...
Presented at the STAR Global Conference 2012. For an automotive HVAC system the noise created and perceived by the occupants is an important factor that has to be accounted for. The system has to create an environment which provides a sufficient amount of cooling or heating to keep the occupants comfortable, but not at the detriment of excessive noise due to the air flow. Therefore the HVAC duct system has to be designed to deliver the air efficiently and quietly into the cabin. To achieve such desirable conditions the system has to be designed early in the vehicle programme using CAE...
