0D/1D Simulation

Thanks to many years of experience, we can answer questions about almost all aspects of 0D/1D simulation quickly, reliably and competently.


With the help of the simulation, it is possible to compare concepts virtually before the first components are manufactured. By using the internally developed cylinder module (UserCylinder) within GT-Power, we are capable of understanding and representing backgrounds better. In addition, internal sub-model development (combustion models, knocking, NO, cyclic fluctuation, turbulence, injector, evaporation & friction model) allows a very deep understanding and adjustment for the complex processes in combustion engines.


A few of our current experiences are:

  • Combustion development & analysis
  • Gas exchange analysis & development
  • Turbo- & Supercharging
  • Emission forecasts
  • Total vehicle & Drive cycle simulation
  • Thermomanagement & Cooling circuit
  • Oil circuit: Protection and variants
  • Waste Heat Recovery 


In house engine testing and a close collaboration with our 3D CFD colleagues helps us to improve our models. Never the less leads the cooperation with the University of Stuttgart to even further development our models.
