Virtual Testing #3 – Simulation of Mechanical Battery Overloading

The increasing spread of electrically or hybrid-driven vehicles on the one hand and the desire to base type approvals on numerical simulations on the other hand make it necessary to develop meaningful simulation models of vehicle batteries. These must be able to reliably predict the reaction of a battery to a mechanical load, e.g. in a crash.

At Virtual Testing #3, we will address the question of the current level of battery modeling and what is still needed to enable virtual testing in terms of simulation-based type approval or certification.

Conference topics:

  • Basics: Which physical effects have to be modeled?

  • Which modeling techniques are available to simulate mechanical, electrical and thermal behaviour and their coupling?

  • How to validate battery models?

  • What is the state of the art of industrially available material models?

What's in it for you?

Expect presentations from leading experts in modeling and research, as well as live discussions with the speakers and other attendees during the breaks.
