Dynamic driving scenarios, such as regulatory test cycles and real-world driving profiles, are becoming an important simulation capability for vehicle thermal management. Simulating actual drive cycles enables analysts to understand the transient thermal behavior of sensitive components which may not occur or may respond in a fundamentally different way in simplified steady profiles. The long duration and high frequency changes found in these cycles can be challenging to simulate using high fidelity 3D models. In this webinar TAI will demonstrate a process for simulating drive cycles efficiently using the latest features in CoTherm and TAITherm. Topics discussed will include:
- Background and challenges of drive cycle simulation
- Defining and simplifying drive cycle input data
- Characterizing boundary conditions for duration of cycle with coupled thermal/CFD models
- Process automation and final transient simulation
