AVL List GmbH is announcing the release of its 3D CFD Software AVL FIRE™ v2017. Besides numerous enhancements in pre- and post-processing as well as the main program, this new software sets a milestone in IC Engine modelling. Geometry Preparation Many CAE Analysts face the problem that the CAD Data they use for generating engine meshes are not “CAE Ready” when the designers hand them over. Respectively they have to spend hours, often days, to ‘repair’ the geometry, and to mark moving...
September 21, 2016, for the first time, close to 40 Scandinavian participants gathered at Chalmers Teknikpark in Gothenburg, excited to learn more about AVL EXCITE™. Users from SCANIA, VOLVO Cars, VOLVO Trucks, VOLVO Penta, Wärtsilä, and many more companies and universities from Scandinavia presented and discussed the latest applications. Engine and Transmission was at the heart of the day, but presentations from AVL showcased also new domains such as EV and HEV driveline dynamics, or noise...
“Home game” was the motto of this year's AVL Simulation Conference, which took place on October 25 & 26, 2016 less than 1 km from the AVL branch Munich. The growing importance of virtual product development and release is reflected in the increased number of participants compared to 2014’s event. High-profile keynotes from industry and research such as Dr. Grams, Head of Mechanics at Audi AG, Dr. Ulf Waldenmaier, Head of Mechanics at MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, and Prof. Dr. Stefan-Alexander...
Scope of this AVL CRUISE™ M workshop held in Shanghai on November 15-16, 2016, was real-time engine modelling with AVL CRUISE™ M, its usage in office simulation and ECU control function development. A CRUISE™ M workshop dealing with real time engine modeling and control function development. Around 70 participants from different companies and institutions joined this event. AVL experts from China, Graz, and SFR Regensburg introduced real life cases in presentations and online on the...
Andy Cook, Vehicle Controls & Integration Engineer at AC Propulsion talks about the use of AVL CRUISE as a predictive tool to present simulation data to customers… “AC Propulsion engineers have been using AVL CRUISE™ for several years. We use it as a predictive tool to show potential and existing customers how our drive systems will perform in their vehicles with respect to driving cycle efficiency, gradeability, acceleration, etc. Having vehicle models in AVL CRUISE™ at our disposal...
