The Challenge

European railcar manufacturer Stadler Rail needed to ensure the crashworthiness of a new bi-level passenger car (KISS) and the performance of its crash module.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Realistic simulation with Abaqus FEA from SIMULIA, the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE application, enabled Stadler to analyze railcar performance under head-on crash loads.

Benefits

Using Abaqus enabled Stadler to confirm that the KISS railcar design successfully fulfilled all requirements of the European standards while optimizing weight and reducing product development times.
