Macrohomogenous Li-Ion-Battery Modeling - Strengths and Limitations
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 bridging material, cell, module/component and...
The aerodynamic development of the 2011 Ford Ranger Global Compact Pick-Up with STAR-CCM+
Cutting CO2 emissions and improving fuel economy is a primary focus for the entire global product line-up at the Ford Motor Company. Optimizing the aerodynamics of the vehicle is a key contributor to achieving those fuel economy targets. To this end, the Ford Ranger provides a unique set of challenges for the aerodynamicists and designers as they balance the constraints of class leading design with the clear functional needs of a Global Compact Pick-Up. Adopting a systems engineering approach that integrates aerodynamics in an interdisciplinary and collaborative design and development process...
New Technologies for Simulating Coupled Electrochemical-Thermal Phenomena Applied to Energy Storage Devices
This webcast focuses on the recent developments for simulating coupled electrochemical-thermal problems. This online event shows enhanced tools for cell, module and pack level analysis; the approach enables the user to capture more subtle physics involved in such electrochemistry problems. Advancements through user feedback have also enhanced the work flow for such analysis, making the process more flexible and productive for the end user. These new aspects are highlighted as well as general modeling abilities. The webcast features guest speaker Dr. Robert Spotnitz, President of Battery...
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) ist eine über Jahre erprobte Software-Simulation zur Detailentwicklung von Apparaten und ganzen Anlagen. Jetzt entdeckt auch die Pharmaindustrie die Vorteile dieses Verfahrens.
STAR-CCM+'s overset mesh technology was used to simulate and analyze the glass forming process. Here are shown the velocity contours along the center plane of the glass gob.
A numerical method of modeling oil jet piston cooling
To meet stringent emission regulations and high power requirements, peak cylinder pressures and specific power of petrol engines have increased dramatically in recent years, resulting in higher thermal loading of in-cylinder components such as pistons. To keep maximum temperatures securely below an acceptable limit, modern engine pistons are oil cooled. An oil jet, injected from a nozzle tube on the crankcase, impinges on the underside of the piston and achieves effective temperature control. On the one hand this cooling concept can ensure the required durability and reliability of pistons...
Gas-Liquid Stirred Vessel
Many chemical processes involve mass transfer between gas and liquid phases. A stirred tank is a common gas-liquid contactor. Gas is injected in to the tank via sparger or lance. Single or multiple impellers are used to increase the contact are between the gas phase and liquid phase. The shear introduced by the stirring action causes the bubbles to break-up increasing the contact surface or interfacial area. The interfacial are directly determines the mass transfer across the phases and thus the reaction rates. STAR-CCM+ can model the complex vessel geometry using polyhedral or trimmed mesh...
