Daimler Truck has adopted Siemens' Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software to develop next-generation, CO2-neutral vehicles. Simcenter, part of Siemens' Xcelerator portfolio, will provide Daimler Truck with a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solution to transform its CAE development process to a full digital twin-driven multiphysics environment.

Daimler Truck plans to use Simcenter STAR-CCM+ to improve aerodynamic performance, and explore and optimize e-mobility propulsion and energy management systems including battery cooling and hydrogen technology. The software will also help support legacy combustion engine and exhaust system design and associated CO2 reduction.

In addition to software, Siemens and Daimler Truck plan to partner in the training of young engineers to create high-level simulation specialists .

“We are proud to have Daimler Truck as the newest member of our ever-expanding customer family,” says Edwin Severijn, senior vice president and general manager, EMEA, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “Digitalization is critical to sustainable industrial innovation in the transportation sector and by providing insight into the real-world performance of products, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ can accelerate innovation for a better tomorrow.” 

Daimler Truck AG is a large truck and bus producer with more than 35 main locations around the globe. With more than 100,000 employees, it unites seven brands under one roof: Freightliner, Western Star, Thomas Built Buses, Mercedes-Benz, Setra, BharatBenz and FUSO.
