Multiphase Flows in Powertrain Applications

24 October 2017 |  Leinfelden-Echterdingen  |  13:00 p.m. - 18:00 p.m.

The right approach no matter in which phase you are.

Multiphase flows are present in many automotive applications. The simulation for predicting the interactions (mechanical, thermal and chemical) between two or more phases is quite challenging and an advanced numerical task. For the successful product design, it is important to obtain qualitative and quantitative information about the complex flows. Different approaches can help by investigating flows of materials with different states or phases (i.e. gas, liquid or solid) or materials with different chemical properties but in the same state (i.e. oil droplets in water). The simpulseday Multiphase Flows in Powertrain Applications will show latest developments and will offer space for the discussion of future challenges. The aim is to share expertise and to bring science and industry in dialog to think about the potential of new projects. During an interactive session future challenges and project proposals will be discussed and presented to the audience.
