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 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

This 2-day class is designed for new users of GT-SUITE Valvetrain Application. It will focus on the simulation of engine valvetrains through the use of VTDESIGN and GT-SUITE. There will also be an introduction to the new ValvetrainDesign interface in GT-SUITE. The following topics will be covered: 

Cam Design (VTDesign)

  • Develop a profile design starting from an existing reference profile

Spring Layout (VTDesign)

Valvetrain mechanism kinematics, quasi-dynamic analysis (ValvetrainDesign)

  • Generate valve lift from cam shape or vice-versa
  • Calculate idealized separation speed  (or Spring Margin)

Dynamic modeling of valvetrains

  • Modeling Contacts for Hertz Pressure and Oil Film Calculations
  • Multi-mass Spring Modeling
  • Adding Compliance to Valvetrain Components

If time permits, more specialized topics may be covered as requested by participants.  Some possible topics are: Hydraulic lash adjusters, Cam Phasers, Variable Valve actuation, Transient simulations, CamDesign Optimization or user-supplied suggestions.

*If you intend to participate in both Trainings (Basic and Advanced Valvetrain Modeling), please contact the instructor before registration. The regular fee will be $1300 and the university fee $700. 

Due to the limited number of seats, priority will be given to commercial customers.
