Available Modules

CRUISE™ M GUI: Pre and post-processing

CRUISE™ M Engine: Main program including Engine domain. Focus on IC Engine development applications (components libraries limited to Engine development requirements)

CRUISE™ M Other Modules: Main program with all other components libraries which together with CRUISE M Engine enable usage of all components that are and will be available in the future. With that, the applications scope is extended from Engine to Cooling & Lubrication, Driveline & Transmission, Electrification and Aftertreatment or combination like needed for e.g. Vehicle Thermal/Energy Management development (VTMS/VEMS), applications related Real Driving Emissions (RDE), Control function development applications with different scope like Hybrid control strategies, Engine Control Unit (ECU) development, etc.

*CRUISE M Engine is required to run CRUISE M Other Modules

In addition to CRUISE M, AVL has also included AVL FIRE™ M and AVL EXCITE™ Acoustics through the APA.

Products Not Currently Available Through the APA

AVL FIRE: AVL FIRE™ M is a multi-domain simulation software, which allows to compute simultaneously non-reacting single phase flows, heat transfer and solid temperatures in systems without moving boundaries. It is embedded in the AVL Simulation Desktop. In contrast to FIRE™ M, AVL FIRE™ (without "M") is AVL's CFD Solution for simulating single and multi-phase flows including Lagrangian and Eulerian multi-phase, combustion, wall film, electro-physics, electro-chemistry, electro-magnetic, heat transfer and other capabilities, embedded in AVL's CFD Workflow manager.


CRUISE M Execution

CRUISE M Model Compiler (CMC)

EXCITE™ Designer: Analytical methods for fast dimensioning of cranktrains and drivelines in the concept phase.

EXCITE™ Piston&Rings: Piston ring design analysis (ring dynamics, blow-by, lube oil consumption).

EXCITE™ Power Unit: Dynamics, durability and NVH (structural vibrations) of engines, transmissions and powertrains.

EXCITE™ Timing Drive: Dynamic analysis of all kinds of valve trains and timing drives.
