Simulation Helps Yamaha Keep Off-Road Motorcycles Running Cool

The Challenge

Yamaha Motor Company wanted to improve performance of its off-road motorcycle radiator assemblies and was looking for a way to reduce time-consuming real-world testing.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Abaqus FEA from Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA provided accurate, realistic simulations of the simulations of the mechanism of motorcycle of motorcycle tip-overs on the deformation of the components.


Yamaha is now confident that its radiator assembly strength simulations accurately predict physical test results, has identified the optimum locations for countermeasures, and can use its highly reliable simulation tools for developing new, more effective designs.
