The AVL product team announced the release of AVL Simulation Suite 2018a. This suite offers comprehensive simulation solutions covering multi-physical component and system simulation requirements and thus enables engineers to efficiently develop clean and energy-saving powertrain concepts as a powerful backbone of the development process.
AVL's Integrated and Open Development Platform (IODP) is a strategic orientation to bridge the gap between the virtual and the real worlds. Model.CONNECT has been designed to integrate virtual and real components to create and test consistent vehicle prototypes along the whole development process.
- Independent, open, tool/model free
- Connect models with hardware
- Local and distributed co-simulation
- Compensating coupling errors
- Fully supporting interface standards and customized wrappers
AVL Simulation Suite
2019 Release notes:
The highlights of CRUISE 2019 Virtual RDE route generator and “share” feature which enables the population of multiple components with the same input data within a single process.
- CRUISE M
CRUISE M 2018 includes enhancements and extensions from which the most important new capabilities are introduction of Virtual RDE route generator and introduction of new components, Semi-Trailerfor HD segment, and Planetary / Double pinion gear sets and DC/DC converter for electric powertrain segment.
The new version of BOOST Gas Exchanges introduces bug fixes and some minor enhancements. Main development focus was put on the migration of BOOST CS to CRUISE M. All functionalities of BOOST CS will be integrated in in CRUISE M Engine. The change to the new working environment will be supported by a model import, so that a seamless change from BOOST in AWS to CRUISE M in Simulation Desktop will be possible.
New features and enhancements in 2018 for the following: EXCITE Power Unit, EXCITE Designer, EXCITE Piston & Rings, EXCITE Timing Drive, EXCITE Acoustics, Shaft Modeler, AutoSHAFT.
With FIRE 2018 exciting new features are made available helping engineers to achieve project targets faster, reliably and accurately while simultaneously enabling them to broaden the spectrum of tasks they can fulfill with the support of FIRE Simulations.
- FIRE M
FIRE M 2018 offers numerous extensions and enhancements which help its users to perform simulations easier, faster and more accurately. With this new version, focus was placed on extending pre-processing capabilities, implementing capabilities related to the electrification of powertrains and to the analysis of thermal loads.
