Tecosim research project: Safe Plexiglas for car manufacture
Rüsselsheim, 29 August 2017. Tecosim has just launched its SimPlex research project in cooperation with university and industrial partners. This two-year project aims to enhance a new simulation method to calculate crash behaviour in Plexiglas vehicle glazing. Tecosim sees great potential in the material. The development partner and specialist in computer-aided engineering has already explored potential uses for the material in a preliminary study, which also examined different crash scenarios. The material promises to reduce weight by up to 50 percent compared directly with conventional car window glazing. What's more, it will also improve acoustics and breaking strength significantly.
