This blog post seeks to raise awareness of how objects such as visualisers/visualizers reference global settings that can be enabled and adjusted from within the Animation Setup and World objects within Dymola. Often we want to be able to visualise the application of forces and torques to better understand...

Simulation’s role in delivering Industry 4.0 vehicles
We’re living through a technological revolution. The internal combustion engine, at least as we know it, is dead. Every automotive manufacturer is locked in a race against time to develop and deliver clean green vehicles. They must be capable of the performance standards their customers know, and more importantly, expect....
New Motorbike module added to VeSyMA suite
VeSyMA, the Vehicle Systems Modelling and Analysis suite from Claytex, has a new addition in 2020: VeSyMA – Motorbike! Overview: VeSyMA – Motorbike was introduced to satisfy the multi domain simulation needs of the motorcycle industry. The current capabilities range from energy consumption to driveability and performance analysis and...
Eboost Technologies: eBooster vs eTurbo
INTRODUCTION Since the creation of the internal combustion engine, engineers began to explore different paths to increase the engine power output and overall thermal efficiency. One of those paths was by precompressing the combustion air through a device which nowadays is well known in the engineering world, the turbocharger....
E-boost – The Future of Turbochargers
INTRODUCTION Automobile production has increased massively ever since the creation of the first automobile, along with that, cars have become more affordable. The increase in the number of cars on the road has led to higher fuel demand. Instability in some oil-producing regions around the world has caused a...
An ideal Continuously Variable Valve Duration model
Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) is a method to vary the valve duration of an internal combustion engine. Recently CVVD technology has been implemented by Hyundai in their 1.6 T-GDi engine. This post creates a representation of the system and examines the results of this model. The model The...
Cross-plane or Flat-plane Crankshaft?
One of the most important parts of Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) is the crankshaft. There are different crankshaft configurations according to the type of engine and performance required. With that in mind, this blog post explains the attributes and differences of cross-plane and flat-plane crankshafts for V8 engines using...
Durability Tests with OpenCRG Roads
The VeSyMA libraries have been used for many different applications, including durability studies. Such studies usually involve recreating a range of different experiments, situations and sometimes very extreme tests designed to push components to their limits. The purpose of these tests is two-fold; firstly, evaluating vehicle response to normal...
The Atkinson cycle and improving the ICE’s efficiency
INTRODUCTION The Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) is one of the most innovative creations the human being has made, in my opinion. The objective of its creation was to be the main source of power to propel vehicles all the way to the modern car as we all know it...
Torque Converters – The Clutches of Automatic Transmissions
We all know almost by instinct that manual transmissions have a clutch to operate correctly, a device that allows to engage or disengage gears according to the vehicle speed. The engine is a component that when the vehicle is in use is spinning most of the time, however, we may not want...
