Further Information about AVL WORKSUITE


Thermo-Fluid Simulation Software

AVL FIRE™ is the leading CFD simulation tool in the field of combustion analysis. It specializes in the accurate prediction of all IC Engine relevant processes including injection nozzle flow, fuel injection, combustion, emission and exhaust gas aftertreatment. The software also supports the development of electrified powertrains and drivelines.


CFD Simulation in a Multi-Domain Environment

AVL FIRE™ M is a multi-domain simulation software simultaneously solving non-reacting, single phase fluid flows, heat transfer and solid temperatures in systems without moving boundaries.


Vehicle Driveline Simulation

AVL CRUISE™ is the industry's most powerful, robust and adaptable simulation tool for vehicle driveline system analysis and optimization. The application field covers fuel efficiency, driving emissions and performance analyses along the vehicle development process with model re-use from concept design through to HiL and testing.


Virtual Engine Development

AVL BOOST™ is a fully integrated IC engine simulation software. It delivers advanced models enabling accurate prediction of engine performance, tailpipe emissions and acoustics.


Multi-Disciplinary System Simulation

AVL CRUISE™ M is a realtime, multi-disciplinary, vehicle system simulation software used in office environments for the design of powertrains and thermal management systems, in HiL environments for control function development and calibration, and in testbed environments to provide simulation models for component testing.


Multi-Body Dynamics Simulation Software

AVL EXCITE™ is a software for the simulation of rigid and flexible multi-body dynamics of powertrains. It is a specialized tool that calculates the dynamics, strength, vibration and acoustics of combustion engines, transmissions and conventional or electrified powertrains.


Chemistry Tabulation

AVL TABKIN™ is a powerful combustion module enhancing CFD simulation results whilst shortening turn-around time. Chemistry tabulation is the most cost-effective way to include detailed chemistry in CFD simulations. AVL TABKIN™ embodies more than a decade of experience with chemistry tabulation for combustion applications.
