Armor Increases Machine Productivity by 20% with MSC Software’s Adams and Easy5 Simulations
Beacon Power's Flywheel Energy Storage System reduces Material Costs By 50%
Physical testing of prototypes is mainly used as a last check before a new design is approved, providing correlation between simulation and the actual results.
MSC Software Professional Services Team Enables Development of Patented, Energy Absorbing Bus Bumper System
The bumper must protect the bus from any damage as a result of 6.5-mph direct impact into a rigid barrier and a corner impact from a common carriage. In addition, the bumper must return to pre-impact shape within 10 minutes of the impact. The primary system for meeting the impact requirements is through energy absorbing bumpers mounted on the front and rear. To meet this requirement, the Reflex bumper was designed to progressively collapse, cushioning the vehicle from a collision. Following impact, the bumpers return to their original shape without permanent damage or degradation in strength.
