Automotive

Analysis is an important component in any engineering design process. Today, vehicles are designed under ever increasing pressure of time-to-market and cost constraints. With modern virtual design processes it is possible to satisfy the often conflicting requirements of competing design criteria.

CAE is most useful for design when it is supported by the feedback from on-going test activities. From the initial concept design stage through to series production, CDH AG engineers support our clients with their knowledge and experience. We use the simulation tools which our clients specify, or provide recommendations to and agree with our clients on appropriate analysis methodologies. We provide analysis know-how for full-vehicle analysis to OEMs and support system and component suppliers with our specialist analysis activities.
