Lubricant distribution predictions and churning loss simulations are typically not an early part of a transmission design process. This is because CFD analysis requires significant modelling and simulation time along with high levels of expertise, so is typically done when the design is finalised, or when a prototype has been manufactured. This means that problems are typically found late in the design and development process when it is much more expensive to resolve issues.
Democratising CFD analysis and Multiphysics Solutions:
Particleworks is a CFD simulation software for evaluating the behaviour of liquids with large scale deformation, such as water and oil. It specializes in the analysis of free surface and incompressible fluids with large scale deformation and is used in the analysis of fluid problems in a wide range of fields such as transmission and engine lubrification, motor cooling, flooded road running, agitation and mixing of chemicals, resins, food, etc., as well as sediment disasters and flooding.
In this joint webinar from Powersys and Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division, you will learn:
• How Romax Energy can be used for rapid modelling and analysis of electrified and traditional drivelines
• How to export a fully defined Romax model with all kinematics properties and setup parameters automatically defined for quick and easy simulation in Particleworks.
• How the fast, easy, automated workflow greatly reduces the time required to pre-process the model and minimises user error, since the same system and conditions are being analysed throughout the process.
• How best practises have been implemented to remove all roadblocks to setting up a CFD model, so non-CFD specialists are able to conduct CFD studies to make informed decisions at an early stage.
• The use cases for this workflow and the value of using it earlier in your product design & development process.
