Our region has a long history of vehicle development and is truly at the cutting edge when it comes to using simulation methods in product development.
In recent years, the industry has undergone a transformation, with the time to develop new products being significantly reduced. The number of preliminary series has been reduced and far fewer prototypes are being built.
In some cases, traditional physical testing has completely disappeared and decisions are instead based only on simulation results. This means that new methods must constantly be developed to be able to predict the properties of new products at an early stage.
Uniso’s knowledge and wide experience fits this new climate perfectly, as the ability to adapt and create new methods to quickly find solutions and opportunities is at a premium.
Our assignments lie within the areas of structural mechanics, often with a clear specialisation in areas such as NVH, transmissions or friction.
We see a clear trend that the area of simulation is expanding. New simulation requirements arise and calculation methods are used to an increasing extent to describe complex systems. Examples of this can be calculating the load on a vehicle’s components by simulating the vehicle in movement, with both the road properties and the driver’s behaviour being included.
Our assignments are carried out both on our own premises and on our customers’ sites, and the tools vary from the classic FE programs to special tools for components such as engines, or sometimes tools we have developed for special applications.
The next major challenge for the industry is to develop vehicles powered by electricity. This will set new demands in terms of properties and will in turn increase the need to simulate these.
