We helped a locomotive major brought down design cycle time by as much as 70% with our automation solutions for meshing of the locomotive platforms.
Locomotive Platform Meshing automation
The customer wanted to develop a tool for automatically meshing the platform assembly of a locomotive for doing FE analysis with proper nodal connectivity across welded & bolted connections.
The following approach by adopted by the QuEST engineering team to accomplish this project:
QuEST Global was able to help the customer reduce cycle time by ~ 70% for meshing of the loco platforms and perform faster design validations with different loading conditions.
