Holistically improve operator safety and comfort with fast and proven multiphysics simulation solutions
Operators spend hours on end sitting in their cabin, conditions under which even small comfort improvements can strongly reduce fatigue. As per US National Health Council, worker fatigue costs between $1200 and $3100 per employee annually, and increases the risk of accidents. It’s therefore no surprise that equipment manufacturers are today looking to reduce overall cost of ownership and increase efficiency by improving operator safety and comfort.
This shift of focus is occurring in an industry embedded in a very competitive market, with many agile newcomers and novel electric technologies, expensive physical test procedures, and diverse regional regulations. The Dassault Systèmes' workflows allow you to re-invent next generation cabins with cost effective solutions. These decrease the need for expensive prototypes and tests, and reduce overall development time, whilst enabling manufacturers to create the brand-defining experiences that are expected by operators.
Our solutions provide you with a holistic overview of the safety and comfort of your cabins, with the information you need to make impactful changes.
Our workflows leverage best-in-class implicit or explicit dynamics structural simulation to evaluate if rollover protective structures (ROPS) will meet the ISE 3471 standards. Our geometry tools take care of automatically updating CAD geometry and structural meshes to evaluate maximum load and crack propagation early in the design stages, and design safe and space efficient cabins.
Electromagnetic and acoustics solutions are there to ensure that the operator stays safe and well isolated from worksite noise or concentrated radio fields. State of the art visuals provide you with the needed information to redistribute materials around the cabin to minimize acoustic transmission, or reposition shielding, antennas and cables to limit operator electromagnetic exposure.
A quarter of operators are expecting improved climate control performance. Our human-centric solutions maximize the thermal and acoustic comfort of the operator in any weather and environment, whilst ensuring maximum energy efficiency. These solutions focus both on high accuracy methodologies providing homologation quality results, and early stage topology optimization to explore hundreds of designs effectively.
