Process Simulation

  • Development of offline simulation tools (e.g. Matlab/Simulink©, GT-Suite© oder AVL Boost©) for the description of thermodynamic, mechanical or global processes in IC-engines of motor processes is therefore integral part of the chair activity.
Simulation LVM

Combustion and exhoust gases

  • Development of methods and hardware services for control systems.
