Altair Flow Simulator - Integrated Thermo-fluid System Design
Altair Flow Simulator is a 3D design tool that provides interdisciplinary modeling and optimization for fluid and thermal systems within a CAD-integrated environment.
Flow Simulator was originally developed by GE Aviation to simulate challenging gas turbine applications like the secondary air systems, oil & lube systems, combustor cooling, and thermal management of accessories. Today, Altair Flow Simulator leverages these modeling capabilities to support all thermal systems, including those crucial to electromobility, renewable energy and electronics design.

Battery Part 1: Developing Predictive Electro Thermal Cell Models for Pack Level Deployment
Martin Kemp, Regional Manager at Altair, Dr. Denis Cumming, a Senior Lecturer at The University of Sheffield, John Milios, CEO at Sendyne, Dr. Gregory Offer, Reader at Imperial College London and finally Professor Jun Xu, Director of Vehicle Energy & Safety Laboratory at The University of North Carolina, present - Developing Predictive Electro Thermal Cell Models for Pack Level Deployment.
This presentation will focus on the simulation of the battery cell to represent its complex thermal and mechanical behaviour. The thermal behaviour requires the simulation of the electric behaviour within the cell which leads to the generation of heat. Managing the thermal behaviour is fundamental to the long term health of the battery. The talk provides an overview of the technologies used to simulate battery behaviour, commencing with the understanding of the battery structure including the simulation of electrode manufacture. Both electrochemical and equivalent circuit models will be discussed with the advantages and disadvantages of both methods presented. Finally, machine learning technology is used to create an intelligent cell model which retains accuracy whilst delivering computational efficiency which can be used in Part 2.

Introduction to Flow Simulator
An introductory webinar to Flow Simulator, an integrated flow, heat transfer, and combustion design software that enables mixed fidelity simulations to optimize machine and systems design. This fluid system design tool provides interdisciplinary modeling and optimization capabilities within a single platform for machine design with respect to fluid dynamics/thermal/combustion within a 3D design environment. This tool allows users to import actual hardware and utilization of 3D CAD point-cloud to automatically create the computational model overlaid on the machine hardware.
