At Hi-Tech, we assist OE manufacturers, Tier 2 and Tier 3 suppliers for their specific Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) requirements related to automotive steering.
Our Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) solutions tackle complex engineering challenges associated with the modern multi-functional steering systems.
Our end-to-end solutions assist engineering clients to come up with optimized steering system designs with better maneuverability, steering response, ergonomic placement as well as driver’s safety against crash.
Hi-Tech′s CAE expertise in Steering Analysis
Hi-Tech extends FEA and CFD services to meet major engineering challenges associated with modern steering systems designed for multiple functions, apart from vehicle maneuvering. Our major analyses include:
- Linear Static Structural Analysis to help engineers predict the steering behavior against the loads and stresses, and determine the structural strength of the steering system.
- Vibration Analysis (Modal and Buckling) Analysis which helps in identification and reduction of vibrations generated due to complex steering linkages and avoiding its transmission to occupant cabin.
- Crash Analysis to evaluate the structural integrity of the steering when exposed to sudden impact or crash incidence. Considering the occupant′s position, crash analysis also helps to locate the steering position ergonomically.
- Multibody Dynamics to provide a detailed behavior of the steering when coupled with complex steering linkages and ultimately allow engineers to optimize the design accordingly.
