Key technology: material characterisation
The quality of the results obtained with a simulation model is directly related to the material behaviour laws applied thereto. Regarding this subject, CIDAUT uses the most advanced material characterisation methodology based on the instrumentation of tests and analyses by means of the ARAMIS software. This has allowed us not only to obtain highly accurate results but also to develop a work methodology to obtain the material cards for specific calculation software in a fully automated manner, without having to resort to a costly reverse-engineering process to obtain the information about the materials.
Types of calculation
Here at Cidaut we have the majority of the most advanced commercial simulation tools used in different sectors (automotive, aeronautical, rail, power generation, construction, and so on) to develop new products and industrial processes.
We are vastly experienced in the application of implicit, explicit, fatigue, multibody, vibroacoustic, CFD, multiphysics and optimisation calculation methods, as well as in the use of mesh, pre-processing and analysis tools.
Cidaut is internationally renowned for its expertise in a great array of numerical calculations:
Virtual development and validation of vehicles and components
Our technical calculation team is highly experienced in the integral, functional development of vehicles, tackling projects from their initial phase to validation in a multidisciplinary manner. We have a proven track record in:
Calculations for developing all kinds of components for transport industry suppliers: airbag modules, safety belts, seats, steering wheels, steering column, bumpers, front-ends, inner facings, dashboards, locks, and lock systems,...
On the other hand, in accordance with our overall work methodology for ensuring the success of a project, there must be strong interactions and synergies between the numerical simulations and the experimental validation of the developed product or system. Regarding this subject, we have the most advanced labs and a proven track record in the development of vehicles based on simulation and testing. This affords us a privileged vantage point from which to accurately determine the gap existing between the virtual and real worlds, which in turn makes it easier to correlate the calculation models and increases their reliability.
