The objective of this research theme is to use of validated modelling to replace physical testing by virtual test. The benefits include: simplification of test program, improve product performance, reduction in the development costs.




Modeling Impact Events:                                                                                                   Modeling Material Behavior:

  • Dynamic impact design                                                                                          - Empirically-based failure models
  • Modelling for large scale events                                                                           - Material properties degradation
  • Multi-fidelity models                                                                                              - Physics-based progressive failure models
  • Bird Strike                                                                                                                - Event-based simulations
  • Hail Impact                                                                                                              - Multi-scale modelling of composite structure
  • Maintenance Induced/Tool Impact (BVID)
  • Tire Damage Impact
