Dry sump lubrication is a key feature in transmission systems of high-performance racing applications. While it provides adequate oil for gears contact, it reduces churning losses. Moreover, provision of continuous oil for gear contacts in harsh conditions during a race, makes dry sump lubrication systems more reliable. One of the most important aspects of any dry sump system is the assessment of its thermo-tribological performance and its capability to remove the generated heat from highly loaded high shear gear contacts. In this paper, a multiphysics integrated numerical method of a dry sump transmission, considering a system approach is presented. The method provides a validated predictive tool to assess thermal functioning of dry sump lubrication systems.
