Fluid analysis

Vicura is a leading provider of advanced fluid mechanic CFD oil flow and heat transfer simulations in drivelines.

Multi-phase CFD simulations are useful for two reasons:

  • Optimize the oil flow to ensure adequate lubrication and cooling of critical components, like bearings and gears, without adding unnecessary losses
  • Understand the air flow around and inside driveline components in order to, for example, avoid overheating of a clutch

By extensive use of simulation, hardware development testing can be significantly reduced and product development time shortened.

These methods are included in our development process as part of our complete offer for driveline development, or as a stand-alone service, such as:

  • Analyses of splash lubrication system
  • Drag loss calculation
  • Heat transfer simulation
