LMS Amesim _ STAR-CCM+ co-simulation_ Flow characterization in a dies….png


To showcase of the co-simulation capabilities between LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim and STAR-CCM+, Siemens PLM Software presents this feature through a study of the flow characteristics and force balance in a diesel fuel injector. 
The injector nozzle is considered with accuracy, and the fluid flow within the nozzle is simulated in STAR-CCM+. The fuel injector dynamics with its needle, control-valve and wave effects of the hydraulic lines inside the injector body are simulated in LMS Amesim, especially the needle displacement due to the force balance when the magnetic actuator is activated. 
The study demonstrates the advantages that can be had from co-simulating two powerful software packages, respectively specializing in the system simulation and CFD domains.
