Evaluation Method: Rainflow (RF) & Transient Mode (TM)
Duration: Several months
Object: Complete bodywork
Purpose: Practical verification of the model calculation (FEM)
Special Feature: Retrieval of collected data via Remote Link
A manufacturer of semitrailers measured the mechanical tensions with 8 strain gauges with the aim to verify the finite element calculations on which the designed is based. Test drives with new light weight vehicles (3 axles) were carried out over mountain passes. The investigation focused on difficult drive situations (e.g. narrow curves) designed to reflect usage profile. Data read-out was performed via Remote Link.
