Automotive Powertrain Systems
The FKFS field of Automotive Powertrain Systems has developed into a much sought-after and competent development partner of the international vehicle engine, automotive and supplier industry. A staff of highly qualified engineers has access not only to a powerful testing workshop, but also to the best state-of-the-art measurement, computation, simulation and analysis technologies. The staff works on a variety of confidential assignments from the industry and on basic research for public clients.
Following a long tradition, the main foci of the work are on the fields of consumption reduction, emission reduction, engine acoustics and development of engine components. In addition to experimental investigations, state-of-the-art computational procedures are applied to thermodynamic and multidimensional aerodynamic processes. Development tools such as CAD and FEM are always available.
