Learn how system simulation can help you improve your engine and after-treatment systems. Guest Speaker: Bakir Puran from Liebherr Machines Bulle

Even if we are currently hearing a lot about electrification, off-road vehicles remain mainly powered by internal combustion engine (almost nearly 100% for construction equipment). Nevertheless, heavy equipment OEMs still need to comply with the total cost of ownership reduction objectives and emission regulations. By 2020, they may reach the 50% engine efficiency target – positioned between 30-40% today. This requires investigating several means for OEMs and engine suppliers.

In this webinar, Romain Nicolas, Simcenter Amesim business developer, presents on the means to support the development of more efficient engines. He explains how system simulation is a key asset to develop efficient after-treatment systems. He shows examples of:

  • Design and optimization of exhaust line arrangement
  • Prediction of the pollutant emissions
  • Development and verification of control strategies

Secondly, our guest speaker Bakir Puran from Liebherr Machines Bulle, demonstrates how he uses Simcenter Amesim for the development of a vane expander for a diesel engine application. He first describes how he designs the system model, then how he works on the co-simulation of the Organic Rankine Cycle system, and finally he presents the simulation results.

More on Bakir Puran:  Bakir is development engineer at Liebherr Machines Bull SA and is working for the pre-development department. His current position comprises the simulation, development and testing of diesel engine prototype components. Also, he does handle the management of "engine down-speeding" and "waste heat recovery with expander" projects.

More on Romain Nicolas: Romain graduated in mechanical engineering before completing his MSc in IFP School. He joined Volvo AB group in France where he worked for 5 years as control systems engineer. In 2016, he moved to Siemens PLM Software as business developer for Simcenter Amesim focusing on the heavy equipment industry.
