Engineering means, controlling and managing physical dimensions In the past this was developed using experience and experiments. The first approaches to mathematic calculations were the cornerstone for modern, computer aided simulations (Computer Aided Engineering).
Hardly any development processes in the automotive industry are conceivable without CAE. Using simulations, defects can be recognised in a timely manner and efficiencies and optimisations can be developed up to a very advanced stage (without building a prototype). As a result the development time has been drastically reduced compared to the past.
In its own development centres inform supports its customers, for example, in following simulations:
3D flow simulations (transient with movement and stationary)
1D load change calculation
FEM strength analysis
FEM modal analysis
MKS multi-body simulations
