Over the last decade or so, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has emerged as the trend virtual crash designing.
FEA modeling provides predictive capabilities that allow the designers and engineers to understand an event of crash in virtual environment. Thus, the process helps in minimizing the frequency of physical tests that are required to be executed. This way, FEA modeling aids in significant cost savings, limiting expensive physical crash testing procedures for the new model.
Cost and Time Savings – Advanced FEA modeling plays an integral role in saving significant cost and time. By crash testing a product or automobile in its virtual environment with the aid of computer-generated simulations, necessary improvements in the design can be achieved that can deliver highest levels of safety and superior performance. This way, FEA helps in minimizing the number of physical tests to be conducted, thus, saving significant time and money.
Optimizing Product Performance – With effective Finite Element Analysis, accurate and reliable crash simulations can be developed in a virtual environment. Analyzing the virtual models intricately helps in identifying the weaknesses in the design and which areas need to be improved to provide better performance and safety during a crash. This way, crash FEA modeling helps in optimizing product performance and enhancing the same.
Improve Innovation – Crash testing a product virtually with the aid of FEA models, and that too much before it is being manufactured, definitely aids in improving innovation and quality of the product being developed.
