CAE Business Unit

SSM has extensive experience in the field of numerical analysis. The use of specific software, such as MSC / Nastran, Abaqus, Madymo, LS-Dyna etc., allows the company to extend its work to numerous areas of application. The scope for increased use of CAE technology is definitely in the transport, automotive, aerospace and railways.

Business skills allow a static and dynamic approach to analysis both, linear and nonlinear, in particular: structural analysis of components and systems, passive safety analysis (simulation of biomechanical occupant), dimensioning of restraint and airbag systems, evaluation rating EuroNCAP, simulation of full scale crash tests, internal shock-head, etc.

Structures Analysis (Automotive, Aerospace, Rail)

  • Structural and thermal non linear analysis;
  • Modal, dynamic and impact analysis;
  • Stress Analysis and fatigue evaluation.


Automotive CFD

  • External aero-dynamics
  • Under chest flow
  • Brake-cooling


Safety (Automotive, Rail)

  • Biomechanical modeling for frontal, lateral and pole tests and homologate/rating evaluations;
  • Full Scale simulation of crash test
  • Internal Head Impact assessment for US roll over certification (FMVSS 201 homologation)
  • FE modeling and calibration of barrier/impact and correlation with experimental data
  • Biomechanics
