Nothing ensures your product’s chances of survival in a fall or a crash like a good old-fashioned drop test. But do you know you can conduct a drop text in pixels using simulation software?
In this webinar, we’ll discuss how TV cable box electronic supplier ARRIS runs digital drop tests to verify if its components will continue to function as intended after a drop.
- How to setup and execute a drop test as an explicit dynamics finite element analysis;
- How to validate simulation results against drop test experiments and calibrate the simulation model for accuracy;
- How to use the insights gained from the simulation to optimize and improve component design.
Who should attend
