Consider a pedestrian, a car and an accident. In road traffic accidents, pedestrians often sustain the worst injuries if their head hits the windscreen. A highly complex simulation process has now enabled TECOSIM to map the consequences of a head impact on laminated glass in a realistic, efficient way using a computer for the first time. This new process is the result of a state-funded research project. Glass simulation can now be used to improve pedestrian and road safety right from very early stages of vehicle development.
Wind, sun, biomass - The juwi Group is setting benchmarks when it comes to renewable energies with clean electricity produced in an efficient, emission-free process, an approach which TECOSIM also supports. The engineering company has used state-of-the-art computer technology to calculate a whole range of optimisation opportunities for the open land solar panel support frames that juwi uses in its projects.
More about the project
The increasing integration of new functions and components into fork lift trucks poses a challenge for engineers as they need to use existing installation space intelligently. This was also the case at Linde Material Handling (LMH), where the Fork Lift Series 392 and 393 were to come onto the market with upgraded models. To make this possible, the engineers had to replace the resonator in the combustion engine to make room for additional components. LMH sought assistance for this project from TECOSIM, the specialist in numerical calculation and simulation.
On 27 July 2012, when the Olympic Cauldron was lit with much spectacle in London, it marked the end of an extremely tense and thrilling time for TECOSIM's engineers. This is because the company, a specialist in Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), was responsible for developing one of the most emblematic tools of the games: the Olympic torch.
