With Crash Cloud
Windpact’s Crash Cloud technology provides customers with impact absorbing pads whose performance can be custom-tuned for specific applications. Windpact is able to custom-tune the Crash Clouds for specific applications because we have developed a proprietary finite element model that is valid across a broad range of low, medium and high strain rates. The same proprietary knowledge that drives the accuracy of Windpact’s finite element model (FEM) can also be utilized by Windpact’s clients to improve the accuracy of their current modeling – even in non Crash Cloud situations. By licensing the Windpact proprietary material database, which includes various impact foam materials that have been characterized according to Windpact’s proprietary process, clients can improve the outputs of any simulations which incorporate foam components.
Without Crash Cloud
Foam materials tend to be one of the weakest links in sophisticated impact models. Great efforts have been made to develop and incorporate advanced material models for structural materials in impact applications but these efforts can be easily undermined, and the model’s output corrupted, if
