Performance simulation

Our Value Add

  • Applying 1D simulation for the investigation of new engine concepts
  • Achieving optimal solutions regarding cost, packaging and project timing
  • Correlating models to initial test data for enhanced accuracy

 Our Tools, Facilities and Services

  • ‘GT-Power’ from Gamma Technologies for 1D cycle simulation
    • Gamma Technologies is the developer of GT-SUITE, a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) CAE system simulation tool. It provides a broad set of validated 0D/1D/3D multi-physics component libraries simulating the physics of fluid flow, thermal, mechanical, multi-body, structural, electrical, magnetic, chemistry, and controls.  Utilizing these libraries, models can be built of practically any engineering system. MAHLE Powertrain and Gamma Technologies have joined forces to offer their customers reliable advanced simulation services based on the experience that MAHLE Powertrain has developed over many years of providing consulting support to the industry.
  • Design of Experiments (DoE) techniques for complex, multi-dimensional tasks
  • GEM3D to construct detailed 1D analysis models from CAD data
  • GT-Power coupled to CFD models for flow investigation in key areas
  • GT-Drive to generate fuel consumption maps for use in drive cycle simulations
  • Simulation of intake / exhaust pressure pulses for predicting acoustic behaviour
  • GT-Power coupled to Simulink® models for ‘Software in the Loop’ calibration studies
