AMESim Heat Generation Model

A CAViDS Consortium Project

Advisory Board Report

October 26, 2011


Amesim heat generation model

Work Plan

Phase 1: Obtain software and familiarize. (Complete)

Phase 2: Model and correlate churning and gear heat generation and temperature rise.

1. Caterpillar FZG test stand model (Complete)

2. Eaton heavy duty transmssion (Underway)

3. Eaton medium duty transmission (Underway)

4. Caterpillar Axle model (Underway)

Technical Status

1.Correlated AMESim temp rise model with Caterpillar Dynasty model of FZG test stand

Correlated AMESim temp rise model with Eaton MDT and HDT test data

Correlated Changenet based spreadsheet no load loss prediction with MDT and HDT test data

Compared AMESim and Changenet churning loss predictions

Compared AMESim, LDP, Benedict Kelley, ISO and other sliding loss predictions

Developed approach to incorporate churning, bearing, and synchro loss models into AMESim

Built model for no load losses and temp rise for Axle

Last Month’s Accomplishments

  • Predicted heavy duty no load temperature rise with all equations within AMESim

    • Churning

    • Bearings

    • Synchros

  • Started to put in actual CD50 fluid properties into AMESim

  • Coordinated efforts with Eaton Co-op Student’s Senior Project

    • Effect of fill level
