Better life by simulation

The TECOSIM Group is specialised in engineering services for product development. It is a market leader in numerical calculation and simulation (CAE) and a provider of development processes and software. This internationally active group has its Holding Company in Rüsselsheim (near Frankfurt) plus seven branches in the rest of Germany. It also has six further locations in Austria, India, Japan and the UK.

With a team of about 460 CAE engineers worldwide, TECOSIM creates solutions for transport, energy, industry & technology and health. With the aid of CAE in the early stages of product development, specialists simulate the behaviour of components under different environmental influences and then visualise the result.

TECOSIM is one of the few development partners which has specialised exclusively in computer-aided engineering.

Innovation driver

TECOSIM is one of the key innovation drivers in the CAE industry. This is demonstrated by the “Top innovator” Award, with which this engineering company was honoured the second time in 2015. The development, nurturing and marketing of new ideas are firmly embedded in our processes. We are also continually working on a number of research projects, the findings of which represent a milestone in product or process optimisation and open up new fields of application.

TECOSIM works together in close cooperation with different universities. Some projects are funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Examples of research projects implemented by TECOSIM

  • Improvement to a laminated safety glass model to optimise pedestrian safety in the event of a head crashing onto a windscreen.
  • Calculation of resonance behaviour in a cast frame to optimise acoustics in a grand piano (more under press release “Computer with perfect hearing”).
  • Optimisation of turbine splinter protection for gliders: material model created for virtual simulation.
  • Development of a simulation process for acoustics analysis with the aim of suppressing and preventing sloshing noises in vehicle fuel tanks. The process interlinked fluid dynamics, structure simulation and acoustics analysis (more under press release “More drive comfort thanks to reduced tank noise”).
  • Optimisation of calculation time for crash simulations through the development of a process during which components are automatically converted from a “rigid body” and into fully-fledged deformable component models (more under press release “Calculation time reduced for crash simulations”).

Quality

Optimum quality is one of our company’s key objectives. All employees therefore constantly strive after quality, which is also firmly embedded in our processes. Our quality management has been certified by TÜV Rheinland as per DIN ISO EN 9001:2008.

Internal teams are consistently working on developing standards further. Quality assurance instruments such as internal audits, an Intranet-based knowledge management system, manuals, reports, customer surveys and target agreements help employees and management to ensure a high quality standard.

Better environment by simulation

TECOSIM works with simulation processes which are used to optimise products with regard to their environmental compatibility. CAE helps to reduce environmental impact right from the early stages of development meaning fewer prototypes need to be built and fewer material-intensive tests need to be carried out. Such developments are integrated into modern lightweight construction design concepts which reduce costs, CO2 emissions and the use of resources. True to our brand promise: 'Better life by simulation.'
