Automotive Simulation World Congress 2013 (Two presentations)
Frankfurt, Germany, October 29-30th, 2013
Title: Air-Cooling System Study of the FP7 EUNICE In-Wheel Drive Concept using CFD and Aerodynamic Design of an Active Rim for the EUNICE In-Wheel Electrical Drive Concept
The EUNICE Consortium participated in the Automotive Simulation World Congress (ASWC), which was held in Frankfurt from the 29th to the 30th of October 2013. The Automotive Simulation World Congress (ASWC) is the premier computer-aided engineering conference in the world. This annual event, which rotates among North America, Europe and Asia, highlights the full spectrum of simulation technology – from workflow and process automation and best practices to embedded software generation and simulation data management. ASWC presentations feature the entire range of physics relevant to vehicle design, including structural, fluids, thermal, electromechanical, electronic and system design. During the congress, AIT presented preliminary results for the cooling system development by means of 3D CFD.
The first talk, entitled “Air-Cooling System Study of the FP7 EUNICE In-Wheel Drive Concept using CFD” (Powertrain session) covered the main approach for the EUNICE cooling system together first results and their main evaluation criteria. The EUNICE active rim approaches were presented in second presentation during the Aerodynamics & Underhood session:
