Background
 Higher requirements for
energy-efficient and quiet
vehicles.
 Demands for shorter lead
times implicate the design
process in a way that noise
levels, coolant and cooling air
flows, etc. must be decided
already at concept stage.

Concept
 Engine encapsulation retains
heat in the powertrain
 Increases probability of high
initial oil temperature at next
engine start
 Reduces air-bourne noise
 Optimized engine cooling and
vehicle thermal management by
implementation of active means
of temperature and flow control
in the engine bay.

software toolbox for evaluation
of engine encapsulation
effectiveness
– Cooling system temperatures
for continuous drive cycles

Future work

Extend the 1-D model to simulate the engine oil temperature variation
after shutdown
 Thermal models of encapsulation structures
 Propose an engine encapsulation concept with active control and
analyze it with the developed tool
 Work out radiation and acoustic models and correlate simulation results
to test results for the selected concept
