Simulation validation is essential to confirm the accuracy of modeling and simulation results, and is often difficult for transient events such as shock, vibration and impact. Kinetic Vision is equipped with the latest technologies to test product dynamic performance and tune simulation models to match real-world performance. Using multiple sensors and hi-speed video, precise physical data is collected and post-processed. By validating simulation models, users can gain valuable insights into how best to utilize computer tools to represent real-world product performance.
In this example of simulation validation, high speed video of various drop tests of extrusion blow molded HDPE containers were captured and used to validate Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) finite element models. The FSI models simulated various tests that the package needed to pass including: drop test, top load, pressure, and shipping. Validated models were the leveraged to optimize bottle weight, wall thickness, and material selection.

Material Model Development and Validation
Material model development and validation is the process of understanding simulation material models and is a prerequisite for accurate simulation output and results conclusions. Our finite element analysis validation team is well-versed with the development and implementation of complex FEA material models such as plastics, composites, and fabrics, and these models can be corroborated through testing in our in-house lab.
In addition to standard tension testing, 3D CT Scanning allows for visualization and measurement of macro and microscopic parts, part features and components, even while they are functioning. The result: a better understanding of your system performance, both physically and analytically.
