Vehicles require effective thermal management to prolong the lifetime of the vehicle and also improve it’s performance under operation. To assess this, aerodynamics simulation is often coupled with thermal models to accurately asses airflow around underbody components or through heat exchangers on a vehicle. Ultimately, accurate aero-thermal simulation can enhance thermal management design and operation of vehicles.
As part of our “Learn by Example” Webinar series, this session will provide a practical introduction to Co-Simulation of TAITherm and ELEMENTS to perform an aero-thermal simulation. Key concepts will be introduced and users will be given a walk through of the simulation setup and execution.
Aero-Thermal Teams interested in performing coupled aero-thermal simulations to obtain more accurate design information to improve product performance.
