  • Simulation Replaces Prototyping
    As simulation gets more realistic, prototyping becomes an expensive last resort. The spindle from a front suspension, designed by Audi, shows fatigue damage predicted by simulation. Audi engineers model the front end of a new car as part of the suspension, then run it through simulated test driving
  • Defect prevention and elimination: Where the rubber hits the road(map)
    yield improvement efforts do not become meaningful until an action can be taken to adjust or change something that ultimately adversely affects yield. Modeling, simulation, inspection, testing, failure analysis, and the like are necessary and meaningful only when they support root-cause assessment
  • High-Tech, Space-Age Metal Surface Enhancement Coating Solves Wear and Release Problems for Pine Instrument Company's Gyratory Compaction Asphalt Testers
    mixes will be able to endure when used to pave actual roads has placed enormous burdens on the components of that test equipment. To stand up to simulations of heavy road wear, equipment designers have had to look beyond the conventional and to seek out materials that could endure tremendous stress
  • Web-Enabled Data Acquisition
    Despite advances in automotive development simulation software, there is still a critical need for on-road development. On-road developmental tests evaluate the effects of weather and road conditions on ride, handling, steering, braking, noise, vibration, and other vehicle characteristics
  • Runnin' full throttle
    and decelerate the engine under load to reproduce aerodynamic and mechanical forces. After 32 laps, the program pauses for a simulated pit stop while the test cell is refueled.
