A virtual design approach for optimal transmissions

19th March 2020
Lanna Cooper

In a free webinar to be hosted by Automotive World at 15.00 GMT (10.00 EST/16.00 CET) on Wednesday 25th March, James Packer, Jonathan Plail and Nick Tiney of Ricardo will present and demonstrate live, the latest version of Ricardo’s toolset for the design of transmissions - showing how this advanced software can help in the development of optimal solutions in particular for hybrid powertrains.

As the global vehicle market continues to shift to electrified and hybrid vehicles, Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) signatures of transmission systems are becoming increasingly more prominent for customer satisfaction and approval of new technologies.

In the development of new hybrid powertrains, vehicle manufacturers are now faced with a very wide range of potential solutions. Ricardo has developed a process to guide the decision-making and reduce the development risk, in a short time, considering both hybrid and transmission architectures to achieve the requirements. Ricardo’s proven software toolset in the design of transmissions has been enhanced to enable dynamic analysis of complex transmissions for the future.

During this free, one hour Automotive World webinar, James Packer and Jonathan Plail, of Ricardo Automotive & Industrial, and Nick Tiney of Ricardo Software, will provide a live demonstration of this enhanced toolset from design through to NVH, and will outline a real world application of the toolset to a hybrid driveline. 

Delegates will experience that our approach not only accelerates development timelines through enhanced upfront virtual engineering processes but reduces risk through use of a digital twin as a predictive virtual physical model driving cost-savings, performance and efficiency benefits throughout the entire development process.
