Impact of Crash Simulation on Validation Plan Efficiency and Prototype Cost Reduction, Renault

ESI Live '22 Session: Impact of Crash Simulation - Presented by Renault


William Bécamel - Expert Leader in Numerical Modeling and Simulation, Renault


One of the main challenges for the Automotive Industry is to develop new vehicles as quickly as possible, by maintaining quality and by decreasing validation costs. To reach this target, efficient and predictive numerical tools are key in order to succeed “the first time right” during validation. After briefly reviewing the global Renault strategy in terms of digitalization and more particularly on 3D simulations, William Bécamel will illustrate it with crash simulation examples and will show all benefits obtained from the New Megane Etech development.
