News STAR-CCM+ is being used as a tool for a collaborative project managed by the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS) to develop and validate simulation models for lithium ion batteries used in hybrid and electric vehicles.

CD-adapco, a leading provider of engineering simulation tools, announced today its participation in a collaborative project organized by the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS) that is intended to develop and validate mathematical models for lithium ion batteries.

The project is driven by a consortium of three of Germany’s leading automotive manufacturers, who will develop and validate simulation models for lithium ion batteries used in hybrid and electric vehicles. The resulting simulation tool will be contained within CD-adapco’s flagship CAE tool STAR-CCM+. The total investment for the 18 month project is almost 900,000.

The project will use technology jointly developed by CD-adapco and Battery Design LLC, as part of their ongoing collaboration, will then be deployed by ASCS, and detailed results compared with a prototype battery pack.

Project Manager Dr. Daniela Maionchi said, “This jointly funded project makes the very best use of the partners skills, ASCS is the ideal platform to coordinate such forward thinking technologies, advancing the analysis tool kit for auto OEM’s.”

Steve Hartridge, Director of Electric and Hybrid Vehicle technologies at CD-adapco added, “We believe the market for such analysis technology exists today and we are investing, both within this project and beyond, to deliver appropriate methods to our users worldwide. Having the chance to validate our battery technology in such a rigorous environment has a clear benefit to our users and is necessary for the successful introduction of any new technology.”

The project is managed by ASCS and will leverage the computing resource at the High Performance Computing Centre Stuttgart (HLRS), which supports researchers from Germany and Europe as well as industry with leading edge supercomputing technology. Services are supplied in collaboration with scientific and industrial partners through hww GmbH .

In European, national, and industrial projects HLRS conducts basic and applied research in HPC together with partners from research and industry. Collaborative research with automotive industry goes through the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart (ASCS).
