Streamline your In-Cylinder Design Processes to Reduce Testing & Manual Analysis
Posted Friday May 6 at 11:5am
CD-adapco will host a workshop on In-Cylinder Design on May 10, 2016 in Elmhurst, IL.

Imagine achieving better designs, faster and with less testing or manual analyst effort. Until recently, process automation of combustion engine thermal efficiency, cooling system packaging and coupling in-cylinder and powertrain thermal analysis have been minimal at best. Individual systems had to be designed in isolation and then integrated afterwards. This manual, laborious process left little time for optimization or design exploration... until now.
