TIME: 03:00 PM EDT/ Noon PDT
Sustainability and the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are a key target for all industries today and the rail industry is no exception. Design improvements on locomotives and railcars, adoption of emerging technology and greater operational efficiency will all be required to meet the aggressive GHG reduction targets within Class 1 railroads’ Environmental Social Governance (ESG) initiatives and remain competitive in the freight industry. Modernizing and expanding passenger rail has also become a priority, as evidenced by government funding in this space.
Physical testing of components, systems and vehicles to innovate and develop new designs is a costly and time-consuming process, involving expensive full-scale prototypes, unique facilities and oversight staff.
SIMULIA’s high fidelity fluids simulation provides quick and accurate assessments of fuel savings from vehicle aerodynamic treatments, cooling system performance and efficiency as installed in the vehicle across a range of operating conditions. This provides benefits for all stakeholders including rapid virtual prototyping at the component or system level, full vehicle simulations under different operational scenarios and a realistic evaluation of various fuel saving opportunities for the greatest ROI.
- Leveraging high fidelity fluids simulation for more rapid innovation in vehicle electrification and its unique cooling challenges
- Fuel savings through aerodynamics, cooling energy reduction and HVAC improvements for passenger rail vehicles
- SIMULIA solutions for rail industry OEMs and operators leveraging simulation to improve sustainability and fuel savings
