TURNTIDE USES A SUITE OF ANSYS TOOLS TO DEVELOP AND TEST ELECTRIFICATION SOLUTIONS FOR OFF-HIGHWAY VEHICLES SUCH AS CONSTRUCTION AND AGRICULTURAL MACHINES
Ansys simulation solutions are key to developing Turntide’s zero-emissions electric powertrain components and battery systems.
While many automakers electrify passenger vehicles, Turntide is focused on supplying electrification solutions for commercial and industrial vehicles, such as construction equipment, agricultural machines, trains, marine and freight movers. These vehicles present greater sustainability challenges than passenger vehicles because of their heavy-duty loads, work cycles, and vibration. Timely, cost-effective simulation is essential to develop the solution components.
Turntide uses a suite of Ansys tools to design and test components for construction equipment such as front wheel loaders or mini excavators. These simulations show the impact of extreme scenarios including weather, vibration, impact, and corrosive exposure to salt, sand and chemicals and provide performance and safety data.
Critical simulations for inverters, one of the most important components for electric vehicles, are conducted for shock and vibration to ensure the printed circuit board assembly can endure rugged environments, and thermal systems are simulated to evaluate coolant pressure drops and effectiveness in harsh climates.
