Small lever – big impact

The well-known salt said to give “that extra something” makes up less than 0.5% of the daily food consumption. Nevertheless, these few grams are, in case of doubt, one reason why the performance of the kitchen crew is judged to be outstanding or mediocre. Just as with salt, many technical installations, machines [...]

High complexity in material and load? Better simulation results by the use of tailored material cards

It is common practice in simulation-supported component and assembly development to use standard material cards, some of which are already embedded in the simulation software. While this procedure usually leads to good results for isotropic, homogeneous materials and quasi-static loads at room temperature, requirement-specific material cards are indispensable for more realistic load scenarios [...]

Helix-PressFit – Robust joining technology for hybrid components

When done right, high-performance composites enable outstanding lightweight designs for structural components and open up further advantages such as very good damping properties or high corrosion resistance. More than ever, current and future series applications must be developed, manufactured and put into service economically in order to be able to compete with metallic [...]

Intelligent test specimen design

Prior implementing prototypes on the original scale, preliminary tests on a test specimen scale often prove to be worthwhile. For directly comparable loading conditions and for the resulting increased significance of the scaled tests, they should be carried out with FEA-designed test specimens. In addition, unexpected and undesired types of failure can [...]
