CFD Simulations for Powertrain Test Labs

Expert: Nilay SEZER UZOL

Ford Otosan R&D Center is the global hub for heavy commercial vehicles, related powertrains, and also global spoke for light commercial vehicle development and diesel powertrain engineering. This organization has a test group that performs related performance tests for different design parts. This test group is having problems with their test rooms in their labs about satisfying and controlling the room conditions such as flow and temperature distribution and control around the test setups during the tests. They are planning to perform CFD simulations for selected test labs to understand the room conditions during the tests.  In this case, study, since the test group has limited experience on CFD usage, they would like to learn and try TRUBA HPC infrastructure with open-source CFD software for investigation of their flow and heat transfer problems in their Powertrain Labs.
