Today more than ever, communities around the globe are committed to reduce CO2 and pollutant emissions, targeting a healthier environment and a sustainable utilization of resources. We are currently witnessing tremendous changes especially in the transport sector, with the once indispensable combustion engine facing strong competition from battery electric and fuel cell powertrains. While these new propulsion systems offer much lower tank-to-wheel emissions compared to Diesel or gasoline engines, many aspects regarding their broad adoption are still open. This is why it is vital to find suitable methods to make IC based powertrains more efficient and cleaner. AVL’s experts have shown how simulation is supporting the research and development of pre-chamber SI Engines and the utilization of water injection in a past webinar. Both technologies lower fuel consumption and NOx emissions while still meeting the demanded engine performance. Join the upcoming webinar in which AVL takes up the Pre-Chamber topic once more and introduces its recent advances in gasoline Ultra High Pressure Fuel Injection. We will focus on simulation methods which have been developed and refined during recent months. Key software capabilities required to perform the discussed simulation tasks will be highlighted. It will be shown how 1D system and 3D component models are used to analyze real world scenarios and to discover further optimization potential. In addition, results from physical hardware tests, which have been performed to verify both, the used simulation tools and methods, will be presented. Attend our webinar and learn how pairing the right methods with the right simulation tools opens the possibility to explore options and take decisions towards lower emissions. AVL cordially invites you to join the one of our webinars on December 10, 2019. Register now and be part of the simulation community!

The ever-increasing volume of outdoor measurements implies a high demand for development process efficiency. The RDE legislation has furthermore dramatically increased the need for real-world testing and poses new challenges for front-loading the development of RDE tests for powertrain systems. Each vehicle and powertrain developer need to distribute the RDE-relevant development efforts across different test, validation and development environments – from vehicle to system, component testbeds or pure virtual environments – supported by vehicle and environment simulation. With the Smart Mobile Solutions Simulation Package, AVL has created an easy way to move tests from outdoor testing to the testbed and to office simulation environments to virtually investigate critical scenarios upfront. In this 60-minute webinar, AVL experts Emre Kural, Department Manager for Virtual Testing in AVL IODP-X, and Konstantina Kanellopoulou, Customer Loyalty Manager provide an overview about AVL technologies and software solutions in the direction of road digitalization.

Um alle Anforderungen des realen Fahrbetriebs zu erfüllen, müssen die OEMs nachvollziehen können, wie sich ihre Fahrzeuge unter extremen Bedingungen verhalten. Reale Fahrversuche in verschiedenen Umgebungen und unter unterschiedlichen klimatischen Bedingungen sind jedoch kosten-, personal- und zeitintensiv. Im Gegensatz dazu befindet sich das Testen im Fahrzeug noch im Anfangsstadium. Es ist häufig unstrukturiert, dezentralisiert und die Daten werden nicht an einem zentralen Ort gespeichert. Diese Entwicklungsphase ist aktuell sehr arbeitsaufwendig und anfällig für Schwächen. Zudem herrscht ein Mangel an Konnektivität bei den eingesetzten Tools, was wiederum zu Datensilos und Sicherheitsproblemen führen kann. Deshalb hat AVL diesen Prozess revolutioniert. Benjamin Faltus, Technical Sales Specialist, erklärt Ihnen, wie die AVL Smart Mobile Solutions dazu beitragen, den gesamten Workflow der Kalibrierung und Prüfung im Fahrzeug zu verbessern. Er konkretisiert dies anhand einiger Anwendungsbeispiele aus den Gebieten Elektrifizierung und ADAS. Erfahren Sie, wie unsere intelligenten Anwendungen Sie in Ihrem Kalibrierprozess im Fahrzeug unterstützen.

The physical and chemical processes within the combustion engine chamber have been challenging researchers since 1876. Now, due to ever more stringent legislation, minor details play a major role, and understanding sensor behaviour is becoming critical: knowing the sensor itself is essential for accuracy and for interpreting results.

In this free 60-minute webinar, Hannes Offenbacher, Product Manager, Combustion Measurement Transducers at AVL discusses the properties of several pressure sensor types and how they are used in various applications (e.g. thermodynamics, knocking) or mounting positions (direct mounted, spark plug sensors etc.). Cylinder pressure sensors are at the heart of modern engine development, so choosing the right sensor solution is more important than ever for meeting the requirements of future legislation.

The electrification of the powertrain has been one of the technological highlights in vehicle development over the last few years. The common multi-electric-machine topologies cost-effectively enable powertrain functions like all-wheel-drive (AWD) or torque vectoring. While a standard powertrain requires complex gearboxes to divert drive torque towards the wheels, electric powertrains can handle this task in most cases without any additional mechanical gear. Maximizing the benefit of the e-AWD powertrain requires the extension of control function development. Effective development of controls tailored to a specific powertrain topology and vehicle combination must follow a strict functional development process. AVL has established an approach for the functional development of e-AWD and torque vectoring controls that starts very early in the development timeline. AVL VSM™ and AVL-DRIVE™ are used as tools for Model-in-the-Loop (MiL) simulation and assessment. This enables AVL to define the e-AWD functions and identify the optimum hardware characteristics and required control algorithms by balancing performance, vehicle dynamics and efficiency. The ultimate goal is to create a perfect match of the requirements set in the vehicle’s customer market profile sheet. With MiL simulation, the controls can be virtually calibrated before being transferred to a real hardware ECU as software code, enabling the in-vehicle calibration to start on a more mature level, and helping to save time and development costs. In this 60-minute webinar, Joachim Ecker, Technical Expert Chassis, outlines how the AVL e-AWD development process ensures efficient and cost-effective controls development, and helps to optimize powertrain functions and vehicle dynamics.

Aufgrund gesetzlicher Vorgaben sind die Kosten und Aufwände für OEMs bei der Durchführung emissionsrelevanter Prüfungen auf der Straße und auf Rollenprüfständen deutlich gestiegen.
Um die Situation zu vereinfachen, können Fahrversuche auch in andere Prüfstandsumgebungen wie Antriebsstrang- und Motorenprüfstand durchgeführt werden. Für eine erfolgreiche Umsetzung müssen jedoch mehrere Faktoren berücksichtigt werden:
  • Zur Verlagerung emissionsrelevanter Prüfungen in Prüfstandsumgebungen sind geeignete Fahrzeug- und Fahrermodelle erforderlich; insbesondere für Motorenprüfstände sind geeignete Getriebemodelle erforderlich.
  • Entscheidend ist auch die auf dem Prüfstand verwendete Methodik, nur so kann eine hohe Messqualität gewährleistet werden.
  • Dennoch dürfen Straßentests nicht vernachlässigt werden. Die Vorbereitung (z. B. Auswahl der besten Route), die Ausführung (Assistenzsysteme, die den Fahrer in Bezug auf dynamische Kriterien unterstützen) und die Nachbearbeitung (Aufbereitung der Messdaten für die Übertragung in eine Prüfstandsumgebung) erfordern geeignete Werkzeuge.
In unserem Webinar am 21. November um 11 Uhr erläutern wir Ihnen, wie emissionsrelevante Straßenzyklen auch auf Prüfständen durchgeführt werden können und zeigen exemplarisch Ergebnisse aus einem Kundenprojekt mit Rollen- und Motorprüfständen.

ADAS features contribute to higher road safety and driving comfort. The industry is therefore moving towards a full roll-out across all vehicle segments. For market success, robust and reliable operation of ADAS is mandatory, which creates the need for high validation efforts and comprehensive testing tools. However, end consumers will not only expect ADAS to prevent potential crash situations; they will also need to feel confident with the driving controller’s behaviour. The driver’s safe perception of ADAS, which is mainly impacted by calibration parameters, will be key. However, perceived safety & comfort expectations vary between Asia, Europe and the Americas. In this webinar, Erich Ramschak, Thomas Guntschnig and Ilva Kotori are going to discuss development approaches for both local and global KPI/calibration target settings, including time efficient calibration and validation methods, with tools from AVL as an established global engineering and testing company.

Increasing automation of cyber-physical systems (ACPS)—as used in self-driving cars—contributes significantly to the pursuit of overcoming traffic rule violations and accidents caused by human drivers. Although highly automated systems already exist, there is a lack of cost-effective, commonly accepted verification & validation (V&V) methods and tools, creating a barrier to the market introduction of these systems. The major challenge is seen in the interaction of the safety-critical systems with the environment; not only should the system itself be tested, but also its correct reaction to the behavior and specifics of the surroundings. This leads to a huge number of potential scenarios that every automation system has to handle in a safe way. For three years, 68 European partners from six domains have worked in a joint research project known as ENABLE-S3 to investigate V&V methods for highly automated cars, airplanes, trains, ships and medical and farming equipment. In this 60-minute webinar Jürgen Holzinger presents the methods and key results of three years of research, with a focus on the automotive domain. Jürgen is Program Manager of the AVL List GmbH’s ADAS project house. He is in charge of managing and coordinating the ADAS Project House activities. Jürgen was also responsible of the ADAS related tasks covered in the ENABLE-S3 project.

The development of automated and autonomous driving is in full swing. New features are becoming increasingly complex, and traditional deterministic function development has become outmoded. On the one hand, processing of sensor data (perception) or trajectory planning leads to algorithm development by means of machine learning, while on the other hand, with increasing levels of automation, verification and validation are becoming ever more important. Fail-operational architectures must be implemented, connectivity is accelerating the need for security and safety, and new topics such as SOTIF (safety of the intended functionality) are creating functional safety challenges.

To manage all of these issues, a holistic approach is required for software development, with a development platform which offers the right combination of tools and enables the efficient application of process and method guidelines. An integrated and seamless development toolchain is needed which covers requirements, architecture, configuration, implementation, code generation and test management—all while being fully traceable. It also needs to fulfil the requirement of an integrated and seamless verification and validation toolchain, from test preparation to test execution.

This 60-minute webinar addresses all of these topics, with expert insight from AVL Software and Functions GmbH; Klaus Fuchs, Business Development Manager and Michael Steindl, Software & Functions Senior Engineer provide insights into solutions and approaches for advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous driving development at AVL.

Worldwide, CO2 legislation is driving bus and truck manufacturers to introduce more efficient powertrain solutions for their future products. Full electric vehicles (BEV and FCEV) will play an important role in next-generation buses and trucks, but due to concerns about energy density and total cost of ownership (TCO), there will continue to be a place for conventional powertrains. With limited further efficiency improvements in internal combustion engine technology, hybrids have the potential to combine the advantages of both electrified and conventional powertrains.

Hybrid technology selection depends largely on vehicle application. For long-haul applications, a mild hybrid solution might deliver the best trade-off between fuel efficiency and system costs, while the energy recuperation of urban delivery trucks or buses makes a full hybrid the logical solution.

In this 60-minute webinar our experts discuss the criteria for hybrid technology selection, and the toolchain required to achieve the optimum solutions for different hybrid technologies.

In order to meet all the requirements of real-world driving, automakers need to see how their cars perform in extreme environments. As a result, they might ship them for testing in the heat of Spain, the icy cold of Sweden, or up in the high-altitude of the Alps.

Test engineers must tick off a wide array of maneuvers in a wide range of different settings, from urban to rural, country lane to the freeway. It is extremely expensive, takes a significant amount of time, and uses a lot of manpower with one person driving, another conducting the tests and support teams all involved.

In-vehicle testing is still in the dark ages; it is very unstructured, labor-intensive, lacking in connectivity and data is not stored in a central place. This results in data siloes and security issues, and the entire development phase is full of weaknesses. As such, AVL is revolutionizing the process.

In this 60-minute webinar, AVL’s Marijn Hollander and Nadia Kanellopoulou discuss how Smart Mobile Solutions can help to improve the whole workflow of calibration and testing in the vehicle and show some use-cases relevant to powertrain electrification and ADAS.

The trend towards renewable energy sources will continue under the pre-amble of GHG emission reduction targets. The available renewable energy is higher than the global energy demand. The question is how to harvest and store it properly.
Intermittency of the renewable energy resources make the supply less predictable compared to the traditional energy sources. Chemical energy carriers like hydrogen and synthetic fuels seem to be at least a part of the solution for storing renewable energy.
AVL supports its customers in defining global emission reduction strategies and global energy roadmaps. In this webinar Martin Rothbart, Senior Product Manager Energy and Sustainability, from AVL will show possible scenarios for generation and storage of renewable energy in chemical energy carriers.

AVL’s Mario Teitzer explains how a cutting-edge simulation solution can help engineers to optimize driving characteristics Increasingly stringent regulatory requirements for emissions and energy efficiency are forcing automakers to implement a variety of new technologies in new vehicles, with powertrain electrification a key strategy. At the same time, customer demands for a superior driving experience, driving performance and comfort - commonly referred to as driveability - are increasing. AVL efficiently tackles this challenge with a unique simulation-based development method that allows engineers to reliably and precisely predict end user-relevant driving characteristics. This is done early in the development process, long before any prototype vehicle has left the workshop, and even faster than in real time. As Mario Teitzer, Lead Engineer at AVL’s Powertrain Engineering business unit, explains in this 60-minute webinar, cutting-edge vehicle simulation is an important step in achieving shorter time-to-market and reduced development costs.

Automated design optimization for best Ammonia utilization avoiding wall film and deposits In the last years, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Systems became the leading technology for reducing NOx of the Diesel engines to meet international legislative restrictions, which are becoming even stricter. To reduce the NOx, UWS (also known as AdBlue or DEF) is injected before the SCR Catalyst. To achieve better performance of the reduction, high Ammonia uniformity in front of SCR is of great importance. As an unwanted effect of the UWS injection, Wall Film can be formed on the system walls and can lead to the Deposits formation. By evaluating different geometry designs of a SCR system, best performance design can be obtained, considering all main effects. With the help of simulation tools this can be done simpler and faster. In this 60-minute webinar, AVL's expert Teo Milosic discusses how to use fast, reliable simulation workflow to get the best performance SCR System design. All phases of the workflow will be covered, from automated optimization of a best geometry design considering different Mixer designs and objectives e.g. Flow / Ammonia Uniformity in front of SCR, up to full scale UWS dosing simulation with the evaluation on Deposit formation, using speed-up techniques to reduce R&D effort and resources to minimum.

Handling calibration data for different types of vehicle control units is becoming ever more complex as a result of today’s agile processes and increasing levels of functionality. Traditional approaches with weekly review meetings, manual data checks and inspecting data in real vehicle test fleets is becoming impossible due to the large number of changes and adaptions. In this 60-minute webinar, Szalai Zsolt, Project Manager Development and Nikolas Schuch, Department Manager at AVL, demonstrate how to structure the important areas of calibration datasets, where reviews take place on a peer-to-peer basis. This ensures that highly critical changes—or late changes in critical areas—are always reviewed and checked by other specialists. To keep a high level of consistency in calibration variants it is crucial that automated functions help lead calibrators to recognize and quickly understand differences, define templates and evaluate the impact of changes. AVL is using a regression analysis to makes sure the quality of the calibration datasets is constantly under review for an improved calibration release.

Powertrain component design is permanently driven by various factors including costs, size, weight, performance, reliability and durability, which are often in conflict to each other. Hence the actual loads are continuously moving closer to material limits potentially leading to fatigue issues and component failure. This is also true for thermally loaded parts. Looking at combustion engines in modern powertrains, the intention to increase their efficiency results in so-called “right-sizing”. While the engine's efficiency and power output are expected to increase, size and weight are expected to decrease. To avoid damaging thermal loads, more effort therefore has to be spent on regulating the engine's operating temperatures. This webinar is part of a webinar series and follows the Webinar “Predictive Thermal Load Analysis”. The focus lies on simulating/predicting the thermal load of an IC Engine, a Head/Block Compound during warm up, sudden stop or critical boundary conditions. In the course of the webinar we will show how 1D system and 3D component models are used to analyze real-world scenarios and discover optimization potential for the component design.

Thermal management is a challenging topic for battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The operational range of electrical components, such as the battery, inverters and e-motors, are relatively small compared to conventional propulsion systems. Thermal management is also safety relevant because of the possible and unexpected derating effects which lead to reduced acceleration capabilities, as well as possible thermal events and pack runaway/venting.
During this 60-minute webinar, the benefits of efficient battery thermal management are shown in detail, as a cell’s health, power availability and driving range strongly depend on it. Nowadays, the topic is becoming increasingly important as lower charge times, and thus higher charge power, are critical factors in customer acceptance of BEVs.
In fact, fast charging scenarios with charge power greater than 100kW lead to huge heat rejections, which need to be efficiently extracted from the thermal system. On the other hand, the development of e-powertrain systems requires the consideration of important aspects such as simplicity (packaging, assembly) and costs, without neglecting cooling performance and safety (how it behaves in the case of an incident).
Today there is a gap between simulation and testing. This is especially true for thermal management. To frontload thermal management tasks on testbeds requires dynamic conditioning units and accurate simulation models.
By connecting simulation and testing, you get much closer to reality. Without such a connection, components are only tested with constant coolant temperatures and volume flows. As a result, the behavior of the unit under test (UUT) does not correspond to that in the real vehicle and, for example, derating effects caused by overheating of the battery are not accurately reflected.
Dr. Christian Mayr, Project Manager Integrated and Open Development Platform at AVL and Dr. Armin Traußnig, Lead Engineer Thermal and HVAC System Simulation at AVL, discuss the development of thermal management.

One important measure to meet the stringent restrictions on fleet average CO2 emissions is increasing the degree of vehicle powertrain electrification. Starting with electrified auxiliaries of conventional powertrains ranging all the way to fully electric vehicles. Modern electrified vehicles, also known as xEVs, are characterized by energy conversions and may even use multiple energy sources. This requires a holistic view of the energy flows within the vehicle system. To perform such an analysis, a multi-domain system simulation approach is necessary, optimizing the overall energy requirements during representative driving conditions that consider the influence of control functions. They define how the vehicle propulsion system operates - e.g. purely electrical or combined driving, recuperative or dissipative braking etc. The insight gained by this numerical investigation is the basis for further design modifications of individual components. In this 60-minute webinar, AVL's expert Oliver Knaus discusses how to optimize the energy consumption of the entire system, while respecting the individual demands of performance and drivability.

For volume applications electrified powertrains are a prerequisite to meet future fuel consumption limits. The range will include parallel hybrids, 48V- or High voltage Mild- or Full hybrids, up to Serial hybrids. In the first configurations the ICE is the main propulsion, requiring the whole engine speed and load range including the transient operation. The competition of different technologies and variabilities, from variable compression ratio to variable valve lift, advanced boosting technologies, high pressure injection at the gasoline engine, as well as add on measures such as water injection require a modular common engine family architecture with common parts and common machining and assembly concepts. At serial hybrid applications the vehicle is generally electrically driven and the ICE provides power to drive the generator, either exclusively or supporting a plug-in battery charging concept. As the ICE is not mechanically coupled to the drive train, a reduction of the operation range to preferred load and speed ranges with high efficiency is feasible. The webinar shows the chances of a modular technology approach, with focus on a balanced overall complexity of the powertrain with increasing electrical power in regard of Cost and CO2-reduction.

AVL’s Josko Balic discusses how co-simulation platforms can be used to develop a range of driver assistance systems.

The introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) has become a strong driver of innovation in the automotive industry. Safety requirements, paired with short development times, can only be met by using highly efficient simulation and testing methods. As these requirements cannot be covered by a single simulation tool, it is necessary to perform integration within a versatile co-simulation environment.
AVL offers a robust and open co-simulation and integration platform called Model.CONNECT. It connects environment, traffic, driver, sensor, vehicle and controls models with cloud computing resources and hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) testing systems, for ADAS engineers to perform rapid prototyping, system integration, large-scale function optimization and safety validation.
In this webinar, Josko Balic, Product Manager for Model.CONNECT, System Simulation and virtual ADAS solutions, explains how to utilize the tool for different ADAS applications, such as platooning, highway pilot, parking assist and adaptive cruise control, while ensuring optimal performance and accuracy within a consistent and seamless development process.

Due to legal requirements, the additional costs OEMs face when performing emissions-relevant tests on the road and on chassis dynos have increased considerably.
In order to make things easier, road tests can also be carried out in testbed environments. However, there are several factors that must be considered if this is to be successfully implemented:
  • For the relocation of emissions-relevant tests in testbed environments, appropriate vehicle and driver models are required; and especially for engine testbeds, suitable transmission models are necessary
  • The methodology used on the testbed is also decisive; it is the only way to ensure high measurement quality
  • Nevertheless, road tests must not be forgotten. Preparation (e.g. selection of the best route), execution (assistance systems that support the driver with regard to dynamic criteria) and post-processing (preparation of the measurement data for transfer to a testbed environment) require appropriate tools
Christian Mayr, Project Manager for the Integrated and Open Development Platform discusses how emissions-relevant driving cycles can be executed on testbeds and – as an example – shows results from a customer project involving chassis dyno and engine testbeds.

Legislation is pushing automotive propulsion engineers to apply advanced transmission and drivetrain technology while striving towards improving efficiency. The required measures are often negatively impacting the vehicle’s NVH behavior. As legislation is also demanding reduced noise levels, NVH is becoming an integral task in powertrain and transmission development. Disturbingly high noise and vibration levels are emissions and are to be avoided or reduced, while considering required efficiency measures.

With the increasing move to hybrid and full electric vehicles, the underbody of the modern vehicle contains many sensitive and high voltage electrical components. Protecting these valuable components is critical from a safety and reliability perspective. The forces imposed on the underbody by hitting water at speed are significant. The task to predict those forces using traditional CFD methodologies is very expensive with long solve times, even with large compute clusters available. Smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) is a meshless particle method based on Lagrangian formulation that is now being used for these applications. This method is being applied for solving problems in water management with complex flow configurations without using a pre-calculated mesh. Solve times are a fraction of traditional CFD. PreonLab is an SPH code with superior performance, allowing for full geometric complexity, and powerful post-processing and visualization capabilities. Join this AVL webinar to learn how PreonLab software is enabling OEM’s to accurately predict flow paths of water or oil, with the goal of improving the design and integration into the whole vehicle. Topics covered include simulation of:
  • Underbody damage caused by standing water at high and low speeds
  • Water ingress into the body structure through gaps and seals
  • Management of water run-off from body structure
