Vehicle transport maker Kässbohrer tests product strength with Femap

The transporters and their sheet metal parts need to withstand enormous mechanical loads in relation to their own sizes. The company runs a final simulation of the entire vehicle. “With one or two million nodes, this may be a calculation operation lasting several hours, but it leaves us with correct representations of all environmental conditions for later work on individual parts,” said Franz Plainer, project developer and designer. “As a result of the strength analysis of Femap, we were able, with only minor design modifications, to discontinue using high-tensile steel and change to a material that is much more cost-effective and also easier to work.”
