EV Battery Pack Thermo-mechanical Design: Gap Fillers Simulation with SimScale
January 19, 2022
See how to perform a thermal optimization study sweeping through different gap filler materials with the goal of evaluating their impact on the overall thermal performance of a battery pack.
The study explores how to increase battery performance while reducing thermal strains and peak stresses by using the thermo-mechanical analysis capabilities of SimScale.
SimScale’s specialists show how to set up and run a complete simulation step-by-step, including how to:
David is one of the application engineers here at SimScale. He brings with him a marine engineering background as well as experience working within the CAE world. Multiphase CFD is his flavor of choice, with Heat Transfer and FEA close behind.
“We are really impressed with the SimScale platform. Thanks to the platform’s ease of use, the professional support of SimScale engineers and the perfect communication with them, we were able to efficiently perform simulations and sort out our design problems. It’s hard to imagine how much physical prototyping time and measures we saved thanks to virtual prototyping.”
“When I started with SimScale, I knew from my previous experience how simulations are structured and work, but I had forgotten some details over the years. The great tutorials, documentation, and personal conversations with support have brought me up to date within 2 months of using SimScale. I am now well versed and use SimScale even with smaller problems to confirm my pre-calculations and to quickly compare design studies.”
SimScale is the world’s first cloud-native SaaS engineering simulation platform, giving engineers and designers immediate access to digital prototyping early in the design stage, throughout the entire R&D cycle, and across the entire enterprise. By providing instant access to a single fluid, thermal, and structural simulation tool built on the latest cloud computing technology, SimScale has moved high-fidelity physics simulation technology from a complex and cost-prohibitive desktop application to a user-friendly web application, accessible to any designer and engineer in the world.
