Vir2sense collaborates with other technology companies and research institutions in order to develop state of the art combustion and emission model based services. Collaborations include:
WinGD: Engine development
WinGD is a leading developer of low-speed Gas and Diesel engines used for propulsion power in merchant shipping. These engines are utilized for the propulsion of all types of deep-sea ships world-wide, such as oil and product tankers, bulk carriers, car carriers, general cargo ships and container ships. The company continues the long tradition of the Sulzer Diesel Engine business founded in 1898.
embotech: Engine and powertrain optimization and control
embotech, short for embedded optimization technologies, strives to lead the market for numerical optimization solutions that will be integral part of tomorrow’s decision making systems. The company is a spin-off of the Automatic Control Laboratory from ETH Zurich.
Vir2sense collaborates with embotech to provide novel solutions for powertrain optimization and real-time control
combustion and flow solutions: Engine modeling
The combustion and flow solutions (CFS) team specializes in computations of reactive and non-reactive flows in technical applications using customized CFD codes for combustion systems and tools for engine cycle simulations to analyze and improve the systems.
Vir2sense collaborates with CFS in the development and application of combustion and emission models for engine design.
LAV ETH Zurich: Model development
The Aerothermochemistry and Combustion Systems Laboratory (LAV) is active in the field of turbulent reactive flows with emphasis on unsteady IC engine combustion processes, operated with conventional and renewable/synthetic fuels.
Vir2sense collaborates with LAV for the development on novel, accurate and ultra efficient combustion and emission models for engine design, development, optimization and control purposes.
