AVL Fire Example

AVL Fire is a CFD simulation tool that specializes in fluids and combustion analysis, especially in the field of Internal Combustion Engines and supports the development of the major components of electrified powertrains. It offers grid independent heat transfer modelling, turbulence modelling accounting for the complexity of flows in powertrain components, Lagrangian and Eulerian multiphase capabilities dedicated to AVL FIRE’s key applications and in-depth modelling of reaction-chemistry and electro-chemsitry. AVL Fire is used in automotive, aerospace and combustion industries.

Rescale offers a simple workflow platform to simulate complex and computationally intensive AVL Fire models. The example given below is a simple CFD simulation to perform aerodynamic analysis on a vehicle model.
