Development of a new gearbox

Background

  • A market leading commercial vehicle manufacturer requested support with the development of a new gearbox variant

Result

  • A new gearbox variant was developed and a complete virtual validation was performed
  • Prototypes were manufactured and supplied to the customer

Axle efficiency improvements

Background

  • A commercial vehicle manufacturer requested an axle efficiency improvement

Result

CFD oil flow simulations were performed, improvement areas identified and changes implemented.

  • Optimal oil level
  •  Oil guides to optimize the oil flow

 Efficiency was improved by reducing the churning losses.

 

Brake system simulation

Background

  • A commercial vehicle manufacturer requested a simulation model of the brake system to be able to analyze the impact of design changes

Result

A dynamic system model of the brake system was created:

  • The model was correlated thru actual measurements.
  • Key parameters affecting the tuning of the system were identified.

Design changes were implemented into the simulation model and evaluated
