The scope of the work done by this unit includes:

•   Modernisation of automotive vehicles and trailers, with special stress being put to the adaptation of such vehicles to special applications*;

•   Designing of specialised structures and test stands*;

•   Strength calculations and analyses of structures with the use of the finite element method (FEM);

•   Numerical simulations of the behaviour of a structure in various critical situations, with the use of the finite element method (FEM) and with taking into account a non-linear dynamic analysis, with a possibility of experimental verification;

•   Preparation of technical documentation of parts and subassemblies, with 3D modelling.

*   The scope of the design work covers the preparation of a design inclusive of the making of a prototype.

Computer software used:

•   Computer-aided design (CAD) software: Solid Edge ST4, AutoCAD 2007, Alibre Design 11.2 PL;

•   Software for structure strength calculations with the use of the finite element method (FEM): MSC.Patran, MSC.Nastran, MSC.Dytran.

The Engineering Design Section has at its disposal a workstation capable to generate engineering documentation and provided with a plotter HP DesignJet 510-42” that makes it possible to print large-size engineering drawings.
