Advanced Simulation Tables Open New Roads to Faster, More Cost-Effective Automotive Design

Today, the pressure on automotive designers has never been more intense. Tighter operating budgets, shorter time to market and fewer resources in the test lab mean test and design professionals must think differently to meet their evolving challenges. What worked just five years ago, in fact, may already be obsolete and ineffective. So where do automotive engineers turn when the stakes are so high on completing their latest design projects?

Safer Landings Start With Smarter Servo Valves

In 2009 the engineers from Airbus’ High Lift Test Centre in Bremen, Germany needed a system to test the landing flap systems for the new Airbus A350 airplane. The new Airbus A350 has two landing flaps at each wing that are stressed by high aerodynamic forces. These forces need to be simulated during the test. Full Article

The Need for Speed in Helicopter Testing

Aerospace testing, whether military or commercial, is designed to validate the design and structural integrity of aircraft and it requires the highest accuracy and repeatability of test loads. When you consider the high value of the prototypes and the time sensitivity of new projects conducted by aircraft manufacturers, protecting the test specimen is absolutely paramount. Thus aerospace testing requires Moog to develop some of the most advanced testing and simulation solutions that push the absolute limits of technology allowing manufacturers to conduct rigorous and stringent test programs to ensure they meet a wide range of mission-specific performance, regulatory and commercial requirements.

Accelerate your Product Development with a Moog Kinematics & Compliance Test System

In September 2008, Moog installed and commissioned a K&C Test System at a major OEM's site as the first of its kind. K&C stands for Kinematics and Compliance and the system is used for measuring the kinematics and compliance properties of a vehicle's suspension. The development of vehicle suspensions makes extensive use of CAD and CAE tools reducing the need of real-world prototypes. Later on in the development process the K&C Test System is used for design verification, which makes it an important addition to the chassis development process. Full Article
