TRUE-LOAD

UNDERSTANDING PRODUCTS & LOADING

TRUE-LOAD is a first to market solutions that help engineers understand loads on a structure by correlating test results with FEA models economically.  The software will determine optimal gauge placement based on the FEA model and calculate FE loads once the strains histories and read back in the software.

Only a few strain gauges are required, making this solution unique.

GETTING THE LOADS RIGHT

Loading measurements form the biggest source of error for performing accurate FEA calculations. Until now, loading has remained the hardest measurement to provide. Traditional load measurement, which typically is not aligned with the FEA model, wastes time and money when performing design and development iteration cycles.  Save money by eliminating iteration cycles.
