Daimler Truck has adopted Siemens’s Simcenter™ STAR-CCM+™ software to help develop CO2-neutral vehicles.
Simcenter is part of Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio of software solutions that is designed to help companies achieve optimised results.
The Simcenter software will provide Daimler Truck with a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tool to create a digital twin, multiphysics environment that will help Daimler Truck’s development process for producing trucks and buses.
Daimler Truck intends to use Simcenter STAR-CCM+ to improve their vehicles’ aerodynamic performance, while also exploring optimised products for e-mobility propulsion and energy management systems, such as battery cooling and hydrogen technology.
The software will further support the design of legacy combustion engines and exhaust systems to reduce CO2 emissions.
“We are proud to have Daimler Truck as the newest member of our ever-expanding customer family. Digitalisation is critical to sustainable industrial innovation in the transportation sector and by providing insight into the real-world performance of products, Simcenter STAR-CCM+ can accelerate innovation for a better tomorrow.”
In addition, Siemens and Daimler Truck are partnering to train young engineers to become simulation specialists who can assist Daimler Truck with future developments.
