Gamma Technologies Unveils GT-SUITE 6.0 - Integrated Simulation Toolkit For Engine & Powertrain Design

New version of industry-leading CAE toolkit introduces a unique integration of all solvers, new valvetrain design tool, redesigned Java-based GUI

DETROIT, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- SAE World Congress -- Gamma Technologies Inc. (GTI), the maker of GT-POWER, today unveiled the newest Version 6.0 of GT-SUITE, the automotive industry's de facto standard Integrated Simulation toolkit for engine and powertrain design and analysis. Since its initial launch in 1996, GT-SUITE has been adopted by over 160 engine manufacturers and engineering firms including the Big Three automakers, Daimler-Benz, BMW, PSA, Toyota, Nissan, FEV Motorentechnik, SWRI, MAN Trucks and Detroit Diesel. Version 6.0 of GT-SUITE is being demonstrated by GTI at this week's 2003 SAE World Congress in Detroit (Booth # 1126).

"The auto industry trend is to move towards integrated system simulations. In response to this, GTI has developed GT-SUITE, and the release of Version 6.0 is a big step in enabling such simulations at sharply lower costs", said Dr. Thomas Morel, President & Founder of Gamma Technologies Inc. "The industry's response tells us that we are on the right track, as a large percentage of our customers have already upgraded from GT-POWER to the complete GT-SUITE package."

New Features & Technical Capabilities

GT-SUITE 6.0 has been under development by GTI since early 2002, incorporating wide-ranging inputs from, and cooperative projects with, a number of engine manufacturers. The main focus of the effort of this version was the enabling of integrated system-level simulations. The result of this ambitious development program has been the introduction of a number of new features and technical capabilities in the product.

  These include:

  -- There is now a single executable, which contains all GT-SUITE solvers
     (GT-POWER, GT-COOL, GT-FUEL, GT-DRIVE, GT-VTRAIN, and GT-CRANK).
     Integration between solvers provides enhanced system-modeling
     capabilities. For example, one can study engine recoil (torsional block
     vibrations) and its secondary effect on cylinder thermodynamics and
     engine performance (see Paper 2003-01-0372 presented on Tuesday,
     March 4, 1:30 p.m, Room D2-08).  Also, soon to be released, is the
     capability to run a coupled simulation of GT-POWER with GT-FUEL to help
     optimize a diesel combustion system.

  -- A brand-new GT-ISE graphical user interface and GT-POST postprocessor,
     written in Java.  These new tools have been designed to be more
     adaptable to the growing needs of users.  For example: GT-ISE's new
     subassembly concept totally integrates internal subassemblies with the
     main model, structured as a multi-page document, allowing storage of a
     multitude of subassemblies within one file, for improved data
     organization and for data sharing with other users.

  -- A new library of thermal components provides the capability to build
     models of thermal networks (lumped mass elements or FE models) and to
     integrate these with existing flow components

  -- A new valvetrain design tool VT-DESIGN provides a cam design
     functionality, plus full valvetrain kinematics running interactively,
     with scale view of the mechanism, and animation of its motion

  -- GT-Power RT can now be coupled with Opal-RT's RT-LAB to perform
     real-time (hardware-in-the-loop) testing.

  -- The PC-version of Star-CD is added to the list of supported CFD
     platforms  (see release dated March 3, 2003 - GT-POWER Coupled to PC
     Version of Star-CD)

  About Gamma Technologies Inc.

Gamma Technologies Inc. ( http://www.gtisoft.com/) develops and licenses GT-SUITE - an integrated suite of CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) software tools. GT-SUITE, which incorporates GT-Power, is the first true "virtual engine / powertrain / vehicle" simulation tool. The product makes it possible for engineering professionals to model engine performance, vehicle dynamics, valvetrain dynamics, cooling systems, fuel injection systems, and cranktrain dynamics. GT-SUITE's ease-of-use is further enhanced by integration with third party products such as STAR-CD, Fluent, Simulink and Frontier.
