Case Studies

From working with likeminded innovative companies on iconic projects such as the London 2012 torch, to crash scenario simulations to improve the safety of vehicles for all, every project we have worked on has been incredibly exciting. Take a look at our case studies below to see how we implement various techniques such as Computer-Aided Engineering and Computer Aided Design to deliver the Art of Engineering. Would you like to partner with TECOSIM on a project? Your case study will be put out there for the world to see across our social media platforms. Not only will you benefit from high quality solutions, you will also gain exposure from new audiences. Contact us for more information.

Composites: new material models for REHAU

Safe and extremely strong: modern composites take over in car manufacturing.

REHAU, a global leader in the construction and automotive sectors, develops production procedures which increase the use of lightweight materials.

TECOSIM assisted during this process by calculating and simulating a variety of material values.

Safe transport containers for SCHOTT telescope mirror substrate

The European Southern Observatory (ESO) is building the world’s largest optical telescope in the Atacama Desert, Chile. Its Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) is scheduled to go into operation 2024.

Made of ZERODUR glass ceramic, the SCHOTT mirror substrate will provide a unique view of the stars.

TECOSIM assisted with the design of special containers required to transport the substrate to Chile from Mainz, Germany.

Determination of load cases and rigidities for ZF concept study

ZF presented the idea that an intelligent network of chassis, propulsion and driver systems would bring in its Advanced Urban Vehicle at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA). This allows for a versatile, locally emission-free concept networked with the driver and the environment.

TECOSIM assisted ZF by determining different load cases and dynamic rigidities in the axle sections and battery installation locations.

Less Risk, Greater Safety

Consider a pedestrian, a car and an accident. In road traffic accidents, pedestrians often sustain the worst injuries if their head hits the windscreen. A highly complex simulation process has now enabled TECOSIM to map the consequences of a head impact on laminated glass in a realistic, efficient way using a computer for the first time. This new process is the result of a state-funded research project lasting more than years. Glass simulation can now be used to improve pedestrian and road safety right from very early stages of vehicle development.

Solar energy: a gift from the heavens

Wind, sun, biomass – The juwi Group is setting benchmarks when it comes to renewable energies with clean electricity produced in an efficient, emission-free process, an approach which TECOSIM also supports. The engineering company has used state-of-the-art computer technology to calculate a whole range of optimisation opportunities for the open land solar panel support frames that juwi uses in its projects.
