Testing in the Automotive Industry

The automotive market faces tough global competition. For this reason, the use of computer-based development methods continues to grow. These simulation methods must be accompanied by real tests in the various development phases to design the material data.

To meet the increasing demands for occupant protection, lightweight construction and functionality, modern self-supporting vehicle bodies are becoming increasingly complex structures in hybrid construction. That is why today, high-strength to ultra-high strength steels, aluminum, and more and more fiber-reinforced plastics are used in addition to classic grades of steel.

Engines and drives
Drive assemblies are the focus of development efforts to provide efficient mobility with reduced emissions. Downsizing plays an important role in achieving these goals. Engines are becoming smaller and lighter, but also more elaborate and complex due to additional engine features such as supercharging, operating parameter optimization, and also hybridization presenting challenges to the composite materials used.
to Engines and drives
As the link to the road, the chassis defines important features such as dynamics, safety, driving comfort, and fuel efficiency. Due to the safety-critical design of the components, reliability inspections, in particular, are incorporated when developing new materials and new manufacturing technologies.
to Chassis
Interior and Safety Components
Safety combined with a functional environment: the vehicle interior is not only for passengers, it fulfills functions that are essential for survival in case of emergency. It protects the passengers through its outer stiffness and the formability of the interior paneling. It provides space for active and passive safety devices, as well as for the many support systems.
