(Add to Calendar)

We are pleased to invite you to an Automotive Engineering User Conference in the Detroit Metro Area on June 11, 2014. This event will feature a wide range of advanced topics presented by CD-adapco engineering simulation technical specialists and one of our product managers. Experts from different fields will showcase demonstrations on various ground transportation applications and will be available to answer questions. In addition, there will be a guest presentation from Chrysler on Conjugate Heat Transfer analysis and validation of an IC engine.

The Presentations Will Cover:
  • Recent developments and future of STAR-CCM+
  • Simulating Systems for vehicle and powertrain design
  • Design exploration and optimization methodologies in HEEDS
  • The Cycle Averaged Tool to assist solid thermal simulations of IC engines
  • Methods for prediction of interior noise due to exterior flow

It is an excellent opportunity for you to interact with our experts and CAE groups in other organizations. This is an event you don't want to miss - sign up today!

8:30 AM - 9:00 AM Arrival & Registration
9:00 AM - 9:45 AM Roadmap for STAR-CCM+
by James Clement - Product Manager, CD-adapco
09:45 AM - 10:00 AM Break
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM Simulating Systems for vehicle and powertrain design
by Fred Ross, Director - Ground Transportation, CD-adapco
10:45 AM - 11:00 AM Break
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM HEEDS Presentation and Demo
by Red Cedar Technology, Inc.
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Lunch
1:00 PM - 1:45 PM Guest Presentation
by Owais Iqbal and Kunal Arora, Chrysler
1:45 PM - 2:15 PM Break
2:15 PM - 3:00 PM Cycle Averaged Tool
by Michael Weaver, Vertical Applications Developer, CD-adapco
The purpose of cycle averaged tool is to assist STAR-CCM+ solid thermal simulations of internal combustion engines by combining and averaging over one engine cycle conduction heat transfer and friction between solid assemblies in sliding contact (pistons, valves, etc) combined with convection heat transfer from combustion gases and crank case oil allowing simulation time steps much larger than one engine cycle, and for steady state solutions.
3:00 PM - 3:30 PM Break
3:30 PM - 4:15 PM Aero-Vibro-Acoustics
by Terence Connelly and Philip Shorter, CD-adapco
This presentation will discuss functionality and methods for prediction of interior noise due to exterior flows. A number of examples will be presented including methods recently implemented in STAR-CCM+ for improved prediction and characterization of fluctuating surface pressures.
4:15 PM - 4:30 PM Wrap-up and conclusion
