In automotive sector, aerospace industry, consumer goods, medical technology etc., crash simulations alternatively known as impact or drop simulations are used to study and optimise the behaviour of structures in a collision. DEP provides virtual simulations to test scenarios in field thus ensuring safety and industry standards are considered while product development. With DEP simulation we can calculates, analyses and simulate the crash and their effects with regards to material behaviour, structural formations, joints & fixtures and other factors in a realistic way. We aid OEMs as well as their suppliers with thorough CAE improvement services for crash traits in their products. Each test can focus on desired variables like occupant safety, protecting pedestrians, damage control, etc. Some of the major objectives of Crash analysis are:

  • To ensure the safety of driver
  • Selection of material on the basis of strength
  • Minimizing the weight of the vehicle without compromising safety
  • To reduce the cost for actual crash testing
  • Evaluating results for crashworthiness of frames and investigate ways to improve the design

Retrieving key information data from the effects of crash or impact loads can also be used to identify streets and intersections where concentrations of serious and fatal crashes occur. With DEP crash solutions, product manufacturers and structural design engineers can easily evaluate their design virtually for various load conditions.
