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.

AxSTREAM NET A New Thermal-fluid Flow Simulation Software for Secondary Flows
Posted Sunday May 1 at 10:47am
SoftInWay will host a webinar on May 26th to Introduce AxSTREAM®NET, new software from SoftInWay which provides a flexible method for representing thermal-fluid systems through networks of nodes and flow elements.

During the early phases of a thermal-fluid system design process, the geometry has yet to be defined -- the complete 3D solid model of the flowpath geometry is not available. In this design phase, a flexible method of varying the geometry and elements of the thermal-fluid system is very useful.
