In the past decade innovation in automotive did not know its limit. Due to the increased interest in electric and hybrid mobility the need for high-performant batteries is becoming bigger and bigger. To cover this need, engineers are looking for better thermal performances of the accumulators. Ing. Gert-Jan Paulus, AI Design Engineer at Diabatix, will share his insights on how battery cold plates can be designed with generative design. During the webinar a high-efficient battery cold plate will be designed with the Diabatix platform.
