Linking Simulation and Physical Testing

TRaC has one of the largest and most proficient testing, validation and certification test facilities in the UK.  We have the expertise to capture live data offsite or at our testing facilities and use this in the analysis and testing work we conduct. 

Our experts are regularly solving product failure issues through the investigation of CAD data and conducting detailed analysis.  The analysis team can work closely with our physical testing department to suggest solutions to client test failures, and the validation of simulation with physical testing.                                                         

Software tools include:

Nastran, Ansys, Abaqus, ADAMS, Caesar II, FE-SAFE, Code R6, Hypermesh, FEMAP, OrcaFlex, CFDesign, LS DYNA
