Preventing Thermal Runaway Before it Even Starts

You’ve likely been reading a lot about failures in lithium-ion batteries in recent years: cell phones spontaneously combusting, major aircraft battery fires, electric car batteries catching on fire....

How OEMs are Now Able to Optimize Durability and Lifetime of Systems and Components

As we continue to explore the concept of Durability (or, “Lifetime”), we have examined how advanced OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers are using new technologies to reliably predict the durability of their parts, components, systems and vehicles. Now that we know lifetime is predictable, the question turns...

How to Integrate Simulation with Statistical Analysis to Better Predict Durability

Advanced OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers have for years been relying on statistical analysis to predict the likelihood or probability of a component’s failure under specific driving conditions. But while statistical databases do a great job of recording and cataloguing past performance based on...

ThermoAnalytics EO-IR Services Overview

Many companies involved in either target detection or design of vehicles, uniforms, and equipment are often at a loss for how to deal with infrared simulation. In many cases they would have the capacity to simulate infrared if they were able to get an initial model setup as a baseline, along with...

Plume Modeling with MuSES

Simulation of plumes in infrared bands can reveal significant radiance information, depending on the operational state of vehicles, ships, or aircraft. For example, a plume can increase the size and/or signature of a target significantly.  Imagine a plume rising vertically from the smokestack of a...
