The Virtues of Virtual Prototyping
The automotive industry is accustomed to using computer simulation in product development to conduct extensive tests in various domains such as crash worthiness, stiffness and strength, acoustics, durability, comfort and drivability.
The automotive industry is accustomed to using computer simulation in product development. In most cases, performance in one domain affects others, but typically each of these areas uses its own suite of simulation tools.
ESI eliminates these problems with an end-to-end solution, which links multiple simulation domains to a simulation model of the impact of materials and fabrication.

Hyundai enters the American market with a new parallel hybrid system that uses lithium-polymer batteries and the same six-speed automatic found in non-hybrid versions of the 2011 Sonata.
Ram Truck chief exterior designer Joe Dehner talks about how they’ve developed the all-new pickup. “We’ve been building trucks for over 100 years,” he says. “Best I could come up with is that this is our 15th-generation truck.”
Automotive manufacturers are meeting CAFE fuel-efficiency standards through lightweighting, which requires simulation software for design engineers.
