The Altair Partner Alliance (APA) has added AVL Cruise M to its current software offering, which also includes AVL Fire M and AVL Excite Acoustics. AVL Cruise M is a multi-disciplinary simulation solution designed for model-based development using high quality real-time models from different domains (engine, flow, aftertreatment, driveline, electrics, hydraulics, etc). It incorporates a graphical user interface that enables setup and execution of the entire modeling workflow, from building the model to post-processing of the results.
“With specific solutions for powertrain and thermal management, AVL Cruise M offers HyperWorks users the ability to not only calibrate ECUs with a virtual engine at an early stage but also to help support control system development in the validation phase,” said Keshav Sundaresh, global director of business development for math and systems at Altair. “HyperWorks currently offers fully integrated and automated 1D-3D CAE solutions for powertrain simulation and optimization, including a single solver format for analysis of NVH, structures and durability, multi-physics coupling and system simulation. We’re very excited to add AVL Cruise M to the APA ecosystem and to further enhance the toolset for holistic engine and powertrain development.”
The AVL Cruise M numerical solver enables multi-physics system simulation and is combined with a highly flexible, multi-level modeling approach open to third party tools offering FMI as a standard model exchange interface. The software seamlessly supports control function and strategy development tasks, xCU calibration on HIL systems and component testing on test systems. This highly versatile tool is applicable through the entire development process, making the advantages of multi-physics system simulation more accessible than ever.
“We are delighted to add AVL Cruise M to our APA offering. AVL Cruise M is a valuable tool within the entire development process supporting customer and R&D projects in large engine system simulation applications as well as in engine control development and calibration, reducing development time and costs for HyperWorks users,” said Robert Strasser, lead engineer real time and system simulation, development large engines, engineering and technology powertrain systems at AVL List.
