Numerical simulation


In the SCHERDELGroup numer­i­cal sim­u­la­tion is car­ried out by SCHERDEL SIMENT, which is a cal­cu­la­tion ser­vice provider oper­at­ing inde­pen­dent­ly on the mar­ket. Since 1996 the now 10 cal­cu­la­tion engi­neers offer sim­u­la­tions in struc­tur­al mechan­ics, flu­id mechan­ics and elec­tro­mag­net­ism. The cus­tomers of Siment come from var­i­ous indus­tries. Auto­mo­tive indus­try, semi­con­duc­tor pro­duc­tion, ceram­ics and plas­tic pro­cess­ing, tool machine con­struc­tion, ven­ti­la­tion tech­nol­o­gy and induc­tive ther­mal process­es. In many areas we can con­tribute with our know-how in ear­ly devel­op­ment phas­es to make the right deci­sions for opti­mis­ing prod­ucts and processes.

Mod­el­ling of high-strength mate­ri­als and their form­ing as well as non-lin­ear dynam­ics of springs are high-end top­ics in which SIMENT is able to make high­ly accu­rate pre­dic­tions. Devi­a­tions less than 5% and there­fore “first time right” pro­to­types are standard.

The con­sid­er­a­tion of mate­r­i­al and man­u­fac­tur­ing tol­er­ances right from the design phase allows an ear­ly analy­sis of the lim­its of the man­u­fac­tur­ing process. The return flow of this knowl­edge into design results in very robust pro­duc­tion processes.

The inter­dis­ci­pli­nary coop­er­a­tion of mechan­i­cal engi­neers, mate­r­i­al sci­en­tists, physi­cists and math­e­mati­cians on the basis of numer­i­cal sim­u­la­tion is par­tic­u­lar impres­sive in the SCHERDEL SpringDe­sign­er cal­cu­la­tion soft­ware in which the lat­est sci­en­tif­ic knowl­edge has already been incor­po­rat­ed. The FKM direc­tive for the eval­u­a­tion of the sta­bil­i­ty of springs was sig­nif­i­cant­ly co-designed by SCHERDEL SIMENT.
