Computer Center:

Supplied with computer aided engineering (CAE) programs. ANSYS is the tool most used in computer simulations, namely, the Computational Fluid Dynamic Package, ANSYS-CFX.

Computer Center

"Carlos Sopena" Thermal Engines Laboratory

Fitted with an engine test cell for alternative combustion motors; ignition and injection simulators equipment for measurement and registration of engine characteristic quantities; Hydrogen Supply Systems and Safety System. Engine control is accomplished with the help of a programmable electronically controlled unit. Aditionally, an 1.4 gasoline engine of 59kW of a Volkswagen Polo car, furnished by Volkswagen Navarra, is available for research on its Hydrogen supply.
