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 fluid-thermal analysis of a water jacket in an internal combustion engine.
A strong coupling between the local coolant flow and heat exchanges to the engine thermal masses is considered. So it can be observed how the coolant flow streamlines impact the global water jacket pressure drop. To finally get the optimal design from realistic boundary conditions. The study demonstrates the advantages that can be had from co-simulating two powerful software packages, respectively specializing in system simulation and CFD domains.
