“Work it harder. Make it better. Do it faster. Makes us stronger” by Daft Punk.

This legendary phrase is not so daft and not for punks either. Applied to the automotive industry, durability experts strive to deliver lighter, stronger, and more durable vehicles. And they preferably achieve these requirements while being more accurate and time & cost-effective.

Make your simulation work harder

After a decade of rapid growth, vehicle electrification is here to stay. To stay competitive, it is crucial for vehicle manufacturers, OEMs, and flexible startups to improve their product development processes. New vehicle concepts increase the need for effective durability engineering to better understand customer usage and the impacts of lightweight designs and new systems with heavy vehicle batteries.

That doesn’t necessarily mean you need to work harder. You can also work smarter by optimizing your processes and using an innovative road load data analysis solution. As a result, development teams can speed up time-consuming tasks such as load data consolidation, data validation, accurate rainflow counting, and experimental fatigue analysis.

How to do it faster?

But how do you speed up time-consuming tasks such as load data consolidation which includes cleaning the data by removing/correcting anomalies, re-sampling, filtering, appending time signals or interactively processing specific intervals of the signals, etc.? Or accurate rainflow counting, experimental fatigue analysis, creating accelerated and damage equivalent test profiles, generating effective reports about the acquired and processed data?

The Simcenter durability load and fatigue analysis solution helps to gain critical insights when preparing for test rig campaigns and reliable simulations. By doing so, our customers are one step ahead to analyzing public road, proving ground, test rig campaigns, and correlating with vehicle durability simulations.

But how fast is faster? It depends on a number of factors, but generally speaking, you will be able to generate and run processes up to 50% faster than traditional solutions.
