Designing high quality, reliable products is always a prime motivation for a wide variety of Industries from home appliances to land vehicles. While it is possible to use physical testing to verify durability, it is most efficiently done by applying simulation methods integral to the development process.
Here are a couple Industrial examples for you to glance over:
1. Honda – Vehicle Strength and durability
2. MABE – Designing reliable washing machines
In the past, our colleagues have written some interesting articles such as “Simulation Driven Automotive Closures” and “Analyzing Durability”. If you try to connect the dots here, you will realize that one of the most crucial aspects for predicting durability is getting accurate component loads. The challenge is that in many situations is that these cannot be directly measured experimentally.
This article gives you an insight into how accurate component loads are generated from physical or virtual tests and the different approaches in use today for vehicle durability evaluation.
