Flow simulation in transmission design

In flow simulation within transmission design, Merkle und Partner consider, among other things, the distribution of oil within a transmission.

Scope/ Calculation

  • Distribution of oil in the gearbox (multiphase flow)
  •  Determination of filling quantities
  •  Calculation of ventilation losses
  •  Optimization of the ventilation function
  •  Exchange rate and pumping effect of the oil
  •  Determination of heat transfer coefficients
