At POWERTECH Engineering we help our customers to solve powertrain simulation problems, minimize development costs, decrease time-to-market and improve productivity using the best in class CAE instruments.
We can provide services both in 1D engine simulation and 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (3D-CFD).
Our expertise can solve a broad range of engineering problems including manifolds tuning, turbo matching, acoustic analysis for intake and exhaust systems, combustion and aftertreatment analysis, xEV energy management, heat transfer, cooling and lubrication systems modeling.
POWERTECH Engineering is not only your partner for simulation: we can provide also accurate training classes tailored to your needs and our in-house developed SW tools for powertrain testing. With our software you could manage your experimental data in the simplest and fastest way.
