Airside Systems Package

The Airside Systems Modelling package enables the measurement and analysis of pressure drops, air velocities and thermal performance of the cooling pack and its
configuration.

Air Conditioning Package
Using the Air Conditioning Systems Modelling package, the performance of all modern AC systems can be evaluated whilst measuring the power consumption, the effect on
the coolant temperature and the effect on the cabin air conditions. Ffeatures include Geometric Heat Exchanger Modelling, Reversible Heat Pump and Super Critical AC Systems including R744a (CO2) correlations.
Cooling Systems Package

The Cooling Systems Modelling package enables users to simulate and measure the warm-up time, thermostat response, cooling system expansion, fluid expansion and
block temperature. Globally recognised drive cycles are available for transient analysis without the need for third party tools.

Exhaust Systems Package

Engineers are able to model entire systems using the Exhaust Systems Modelling package; from the engine to rear silencer/muffler and to measure the exhaust pressures, losses, flow rates and other performance parameters. Simulation tools include Full Heat Transfer in bends and Weighting Factor for irregular bends

Fuel & Injection Systems Package

The Fuel & Injection Systems Modelling package enables engineers to model the entire Fuel & Injection system from tank to injector. Engineers can investigate tank filling rates, fuel pressures (high and low side), flow rates, temperatures & pressures and injector performance.

Lubrication Systems Package

The Lubrication Systems Modelling package provides simulation tools to ensure adequate oil flow to all components such as bearings for all operating conditions, minimising friction, optimising component sizing and heat management.

Automotive Systems Suite Package

The complete systems modelling and simulation package including all the advanced automotive systems functionality and component libaries form the airside, cooling, exhuast, fuel and lubrication system packages
