The Cost of Cooling: Unlocking Vehicle Efficiency with Cabin CFD
Air conditioning can reduce fuel economy by more than 20%, making it the vehicle's most energy-consuming system. To solve this difficult challenge, vehicle designers are turning to Altair's powerful and intuitive CFD solutions to understand the energy consumption and energy losses of the system for increased range and improved passenger thermal environment.

Battery Performance, Lifetime, and Safety
As battery technologies advance and consumers expect extended range and shorter charge times, using transient thermal simulation to predict battery performance has become increasingly crucial. Join us as we demonstrate how you can leverage TAITherm software and Battery Extension to accurately predict battery performance, lifetime, and safety in a wide range of real-world environmental conditions.
We will show you how to simulate different usage scenarios, and how heat produced by the battery can lead to failure including thermal runaway. We will take you inside TAITherm software while exploring case studies and examples of past results.
How to Make Thermal Modeling Worthwhile
Are you a new TAITherm user or just need a refresher on the basics? Follow along as Lauren, our talented thermal engineer shows you the components you need to create the best models for successful thermal analysis. She will bring you inside the software for a look at TAITherm’s modeling capabilities and the types of problems you can solve, as well as a mini heat transfer primer and sample transient modeling process.

Heavy Duty: The Unique Thermodynamics of Heavy Vehicles
The heavy vehicle class trucks, tractor-trailers, construction equipment, agriculture vehicles, etc. is perhaps the hardest working class in the business, to borrow an expression. Not surprisingly, this class of vehicle presents some unique thermal management issues, distinguishing them from typical automobiles and presenting some distinct challenges when it comes to heat transfer modeling.
