Simulation expertise
Our simulation capabilities are as widespread as our product portfolio:
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for fluid analysis, finite element analysis (FEA) for structural analysis, system simulation to analyze complete car, engine or component behavior up to electronic simulation of circuits or electric motors are part of our daily work.
The department Simulation & Quality Tools of Central Engineering offers as part of KSPG Research and Technology a wide range of solutions and support in the field of numerical analysis. By utilization of most modern simulation tools and methods in early product development phases we can make an important contribution to bring successful frontloading to life.
