cost effective and pragmatic approach to using CAE to support design development and problem solving
CSA Group uses a combination of in-house capability and carefully selected outsource partners to provide a comprehensive package of CAE support.
Dynamic analysis (MBD): prediction of suspension kinemetics, dynamic response to road inputs, engine movement with different mount strategies, vibration transfer into the body, etc.
Structural analysis (FE): prediction of stresses in components and systems, identification of stress "hot-spots", prediction of deformation under operating loads, prediction of natural frequencies and forced response characteristics of structures
Fatigue life prediction: prediction of the life of a structure when subjected to defined loads
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD): 3D prediction of flow characteristics, typically within the intake and exhaust of the engine, and within the interior and engine bay of the vehicle
Acoustic prediction: 1D simulation of engine intake and exhaust system acoustics
Flow prediction: 1D simulation of flow within engine intake and exhaust systems (inlet depression and exhaust back-pressure)
