While the use of simulation is increasing year over year, vehicle durability testing remains crucial to avoid vehicle recalls and meet customers’ expectations.
Impacted by electrification and light-weighting strategies, vehicle durability engineering departments now also test electronic parts, next to traditional mechanical test work. This requires innovative tools and solutions for (road) load data acquisition and processing to increase their productivity and deliver lighter, stronger and more durable vehicles.
This Simcenter white paper describes how to perform vehicle durability testing campaigns by securing that every activity or step is tuned and optimized for testing productivity while maintaining the same high-level quality.
A tuned and optimized automotive durability testing campaign
An automotive durability testing campaign is comprised of a set of different activities:
- Instrumentation of the vehicle
- Defining the channel setup in the acquisition software
- Driving the vehicle on the proving ground or the test field
- Validating the measured data
- Data clean-up by removing anomalies like spikes, drift, and offsets
- An in-depth durability analysis to gain insights into the damage potential
- Data conversion and reporting
- Accelerated test schedules for simulation, test benches, or proving grounds
Download the white paper and ensure that every activity and every step of your testing campaign is tuned and optimized for testing productivity while keeping the same high-level quality.
