INTERACTIVE VISUAL ANALYSIS AS A SUPPORT OF OPTIMIZATION AND ANALYSIS OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES
Multiple simulation runs, a process where many simulations with different parameters of the same model are ran, helps engine designers in getting insight. In order to cope with increased complexity and amount of results advanced techniques are needed. Interactive visual analysis can support analysis of such a data. Three projects: rapid prototyping of a common rail injection system, analysis of a timing chain drive, and analysis of an elastohydrodynamic lubrication bearing are described. All of these projects result from a cooperation between visualization experts and mechanical engineers.
