The power density of modern combustion engines leads to higher performance requirements for cooling circuits. The cooling circuit of a turbocharged combustion engine requires a flapper check valve with two lines on the outlet side to optimize cooling efficiency. We produce this valve by using SLM to realize challenging flow paths and lightweight structures.
Sometimes there are unpleasant interactions between connected circuits. The medium flows backwards, although it should flow forwards. With the help of CFD we analyze the media flows and optimize the design by eliminating the „media flow backwards“. We validate the results on the test bench and confirm the calculations.
