How Virtual Prototyping is Key to Certify EVs - with an embedded Battery

Simulation today is used by automotive engineering teams to design lightweight vehicle bodies fulfilling vehicle safety regulations. Legislation is rapidly evolving to accommodate the growing electrical vehicle market share and is considering additional battery safety requirements. The focus is on avoiding internal short circuit due to internal damage within a cell which may result in a fire hazard.

Assessing short circuit risk in CAE at the vehicle level is complex as there involves phenomena at different scales. The vehicle deforms on a macroscale level during the impact event. The battery cells deform locally and damage extremely thin components such as the separator, generating short circuits at the meso scale level. It is therefore necessary to evaluate phenomena at multi-scale level.

Join our upcoming webinar to assess virtually and efficiently short circuit risk in full vehicle crash scenarios based on physical – non empirical - values. Ultimately allowing you to evaluate and control the risk assessment of battery fire during a car crash event.
