Computer-assisted design solid modeling is used to develop and prototype acceptable parts.

Component and systems design and fabrication services for air, fuel, lubricant, and other engine and powertrain systems and components are provided by Vehicle Systems Research engineers at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI). These services include:

  • Prototype component design and functionality evaluation
  • Computational fluid dynamics analysis
  • Prototyping
  • Statistical analysis

In addition to component and systems development, engineers at have extensive experience in:

  • Fuel and lubricant delivery systems
  • Air induction systems
  • Automotive component testing

SwRI engineers possess a comprehensive understanding of:

  • Flow dynamics
  • Contamination tolerance
  • Material life expectancy
