This presentation introduces methods and value in performing cooling analysis using fully CAD-Embedded Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to allow earlier thermal performance prediction of a battery pack, evaluating cooling path geometry. Register now to learn more about example initial battery packaging studies and exploring integration with the vehicle structure.

An air-cooled battery pack system example is simulated using FloEFDŽ for Siemens NX to predict proper mean temperature and temperature distribution throughout the pack beside other how to perform CFD studies within any CAD environment.

What You Will Learn

  • An Introduction to an example air cooled battery pack example model
  • Interpreting design studies in to define CFD analysis incl. model set up and boundary conditions
  • Preparing CFD studies within the CAD Environment
  • Interpreting results for a battery pack cooling study to evaluate flow rates and temperature distribution
  • Identify time savings via fast automated CFD meshing allow for more iterative studies
  • Setting up customized results to help identify design enhancements may be most effective
