Plastics Application:

01-plastics application-optimization of design-snap fit simulation-solidworks-sustainablity

Household appliances, medical devices, electrical fittings among others incorporate numerous plastic product designs that need critical design validation to meet functional requirements. COSMOS finds extensive use in validating plastic product designs for functional efficiency and optimal usage of materials.

Capabilities of COSMOS include:

  • Snap-fit simulation for stresses and deflections
  • Limit load analysis of critical load bearing components
  • Strength calculations of reinforced plastics
  • Kinematic analysis of actuation systems and mechanisms
  • Optimization of designs for least cost and weight

Elastomer Applications:

01-elastomer applications-contact pitch calculations-rotating race Car wheel-Navier Stokes Simulation

Elastomers such as rubber require special treatment due to material non-linear behavior, COSMOS provides a rich set of resources for accurately modeling real-world problems involving high geometric and material non-linearities. Applications of COSMOS in non-linear domain are wide ranging.
