3D-CFD Simulation (QuickSim, StarCD®)

3D-CFD simulations allow a "virtual view" into the engine.

For this purpose,  QuickSim only uses StarCD® as a solver and allows:

Temperature distribution in a full engine (QuickSim, StarCD®)
  • … the extent of the simulation domain from one individual cylinder up to the full engine (to increase the predictability and reduce the influence of boundary conditions)
  • the simulation of several successive cycles (to reduce/eliminate the influence of initial conditions)
  • an efficient and reliable computation within short CPU-times
  • a clear and concise evaluation of the simulation results (virtual testbench)
Changes of the fuel distribution in the combustion chamber within 5 successive cycles
Evaluation of the mass flow through inlet and outlet valves


An integrated working-process calculation supports the analysis of the engine processes and also enables a continuous comparison with testbench measurements and/or other simulation programs (controlling function). In addition to standard fuels like gasoline and diesel, also gas engines (CNG and hydrogen) and bio-fuels can be simulated. Here, the virtual analyses of all engine operating strategies, as well as any kind of design adjustments are possible.
