This 2-day class is designed for users with previous experience in GT-SUITE Valvetrain Applications. It will focus on the simulation of special engine valvetrains topics through the use of GT-SUITE.

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 topics will be covered: 

Dynamic correlation 

  • Typical measurements 
  • Recommended correlation procedures 


  • Comparison of Eigenfrequencies, Fatigue 
  • Preview of new feature outputs 


  • Hertzian Stress and Film models 
  • Key roughness inputs 
  • Detailed stress analysis 
  • Roller crown shaping 


  • Estimating Seal data 
  • Bending effects 


  • Simplified GT models
  • Detailed HD models 
  • Defining odd feed geometries 
  • EHD (Elasto-Hydrodynamics) 

HLA (Hydraulic Lash Adjuster) 

  • Simple GT model calibration 
  • Detailed flow model, breakdown and topology changes (relief valve) 


Each application will be attended by small exercises to cover a broad range of applications. If time permits, more specialized topics, including timing drives and engine performance integration, may be covered as requested by participants. 

*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.
