This class is intended for users with previous experience or users who participate in this free-of-charge Introduction Training.

This 2-day class will introduce the use of GT-SUITE software for modeling the distribution of heat within the engine thermal structure.

Engine heat distribution models allow the prediction of heat rejection to coolant and oil at any operating condition, and may be used to study concepts for reducing fuel consumption by optimizing energy flows to minimize friction during transient warmup events. The class is targeted towards engineers with responsibility for powertrain cooling, friction reduction, or total vehicle energy management. This class will cover the process of building and calibrating an engine heat distribution model, beginning from engine CAD data. The process involves significant use of the 3D pre-processing tools of GT-SUITE (GEM3D and GT-SpaceClaim). 

This course will be conducted online via web meeting.

To reserve your spot, you must have access to the following:

  • Computer with GT-SUITE v2021 (the training will be conducted with v2021, but if you only have v2020 that is acceptable)
  • Access to an active license
  • Good internet connection
  • Ideally two monitors/devices (although not required)
    • one to follow the instructor on the web meeting (web browser only)
    • one to use GT-SUITE for interactive model building

The following are the primary topics to be covered: 

  • Conversion of coolant jackets from CAD Data 
  • Conversion of block/head thermal masses from CAD Data 
  • Modeling the cylinder structure with 3D finite elements 
  • Calibration of flow distribution & heat transfer 
  • Modeling map-based engine friction depending on system temperatures 
  • Integration with engine performance model 

Due to the limited room capacity, seats will be allocated preferentially to commercial customers.
