Engines today are expected to meet high requirements, maximum performance and low fuel consumption while keeping pollutant emissions at a minimum. Inlet manifolds or Intake manifolds play a vital role. The design engineer has to take into consideration many factors to fulfill all the requirements. Ing. Reshmaa Selvakumar, Application Engineer at Diabatix, will give you her insights on how generative design benefits the design process by demonstrating a flow optimization of an intake manifold with Diabatix ColdStream.
