The Importance of Transient Simulation for Underhood & Underbody Packaging

Packaging constrictions in new vehicles dominate the positioning and organization of components within the engine compartment. With less space and more temperature sensitive components, (plastics for lightweighting, infotainment, and electrical components) thermal management becomes an increasingly critical aspect of vehicle design. Component hot spots can lead to safety, durability, and warranty issues. Careful consideration of component placement and heat shields is mandatory to avoid costly late-stage fixes....

Advantages of Simulating Thermal Behavior of Underbody Components

Understanding the thermal behavior of underbody components can help an engineer balance the priorities and tightening restrictions for vehicle design. The underbody of a vehicle experiences some of the most thermally dramatic scenarios for which there is no simple solution. By using a method that provides accurate thermal predictions, engineers can assess a variety of design options early in the product development cycle. These predictions will provide a better understanding of the thermal behavior the vehicle will undergo under both extreme and common scenarios....

OEMs Emphasize — and Increasingly Measure — Durability to Drive ROI

OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers worldwide are dedicating greater emphasis, personnel teams, resources and even urgency to not only understand but to predict the durability of their vehicles and/or components over their respective lifetimes. Though it might seem obvious, it’s one thing to know how your...
