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

This course will be conducted online via web meeting.

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

  • Computer with GT-SUITE v2022 (the training will be conducted with v2022, but if you only have v2021 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

This 2-day class is intended to show engineers how to model a lubrication circuit in GT-SUITE.

This includes but is not limited to:

  • How to Build a Model from a CAD File: The participant will learn how to transform a CAD File into a 1D lubrication model in GT-SUITE using GT-Spaceclaim and GEM3D. 
  • How to Model Oil Circuit Components in GT-SUITE: The participant will learn how to construct a lubrication model from scratch, including oil passages, filters, bearings, relief valve and pump. 
  • Analyze Results in GT-POST: The participant will learn how to analyze results of a lubrication model, including a breakdown of the oil flow distribution to various consumers, as well as performing an engine speed and temperature sweep to see how these variables affect results. 
  • How to Model Important Oil Circuit Behavior: The instructor will show that the following types of oil circuit analysis can be performed in GT-SUITE: 
  • Steady state 
  • Priming/filling 
  • Transient thermal oil response (both temperature and engine speed changing) 
  • Pump power/energy consumption over driving cycle 
  • Detailed pump analysis 
  • Introductory GT-SUITE Concepts: In addition to lubrication specific modeling, this class will also focus on the basics of using GT-SUITE, including:  
  • 1-D Flow Simulation 
  • Discretization of 1-D Models 
  • Fluid Properties for modeling lubrication circuit 
  • Optimization and component calibration 

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