Realistic simulation with Abaqus FEA from SIMULIA, the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE application, enables DT HiLoad to ensure optimum tray performance for each custom application

The Challenge

Leading dump truck tray manufacturer DT HiLoad needed to design custom trays that would provide continuous transition of stiffness (flexibility) throughout the tray and endure under varying loads and strains.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Realistic simulation with Abaqus FEA from SIMULIA, the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE application, enables DT HiLoad to ensure optimum tray performance for each custom application.

Benefits

Using Abaqus has enabled DT HiLoad to reduce truck tray weight 50 percent, cutting fuel costs while lowering fatigue and loads on the tray and, most importantly, increasing the payload the trucks can carry.
