FVA and AVL have announced they are joining forces to support their customers in developing virtual transmissions at the highest level. The transition to electric drives and increasing virtualization pose new challenges for drive technology companies on a daily basis. 

"By combining the FVA-Workbench's proven design analysis capabilities with AVL's multiphysics simulation suite, we have created the most comprehensive gearbox analysis solution available on the market. We now cover the entire development process, from concept to calibration, with high-quality methods and models. Our cooperation with the AVL-Network allows us to offer our leading products to customers around the world,” Norbert Haefke, managing director, FVA GmbH.


•Leading calculation and simulation methods, based on more than 50 years of research
•Analytical and numerical methods are developed, analyzed, and validated in FVA research projects
•Modern user interface, which makes modeling easy and gives access to a wide range of engineering expertise

AVL Simulation Suite:

•EXCITE: Durability and NVH analysis based on fully flexible structural dynamics simulation
•PreonLab: Highly efficient lubrication analysis with particle based CFD
•FIRE M: Optimization of Performance, Efficiency and Thermal aspects of propulsion systems, based on multi-physics CFD
•CRUISE M: Virtual System Integration, Function Development and Calibration
New developments in these areas will be available as further technical details come into play.
