This class is intended to show engineers how to model a lubrication circuit in GT-SUITE and to introduce basic modeling concepts in GT-SUITE. The participant will be able to understand in detail the advantage of GT-SUITE compared to previous modeling methodologies of lube circuits. The participant will also discover a new way of creating an oil circuit model directly from a CAD File, which is a true alternative & technological breakthrough to efficiently generate 1D lubrication circuit models.
- 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 the GEM3D pre-processor.
- How to Model Oil Circuit Components in GT-SUITE: The participant will learn how to construct a lubrication model from scratch, including oil passages, 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
- 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 course will also focus on the basics of using GT-SUITE, including:
- 1-D Flow Simulation
- Discretization of 1-D Models
- Model Setup- initialization, parameter sweeps, convergence
- Post-processing (GT-POST)
- Modeling of pipes & fluid components
- Fluid Properties
Note: This course may be offered as a future open registration event OR requested as a custom training at a GTI office location or your location.
