The simulation of a gearbox represents one of the most challenging topics in classical CFD, since the complex geometries, the free surface of the oil and the dynamics of the system can only be solved with the very highest effort for classical CFD methods. Especially for electric axle systems, a robust oiling concept is a very important milestone in the development due to the high number of revolutions, which is usually validated quite late on the test bench.

Vehicle soiling phenomena can be a major safety hazard due to obstructed driver’s visibility of the road or abnormal operation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). In this webinar you will learn how to address both challenges in a virtual testing environment early in the vehicle development process.

Vehicle water wading and rain water management are two of the main liquid-dominated vehicle body problems which, instead of performing high cost real-life experiments, can be simulated in a virtual environment. Addressing these challenges in a virtual environment requires in-depth engineering expertise and a powerful yet efficient computational tool. Virtual development provides additional insights and makes design variants possible early in the design cycle. During this webinar you will discover what makes AVL’s solution ideal for these kinds of engineering challenges, and how simulations can be a real alternative to testing.

Does this sound familiar to you – are you looking to optimize the design of the vehicle for water passage? Or would you like to optimize rain water evacuation in order to prevent corrosion and icing?
