Design and calculations

There are main following activities of VCA: general analysis of strength and stiffness using finite elements method (FEM) with focusing on automotive structures.

VCA cooperates with a number of approval authorities (SGS TÜV Germany, TÜV SÜD GermanyTÜV SÜD CZDEKRAAutókut …) and is able to offer complex support of development for our clients.

 VCA offers following solutions for:

  • problems of linear and nonlinear statics solved with FEM
  • problems of nonlinear dynamics in range of elastic-plastic deformations (FEM)
  • problems of nonlinear dynamics of rigid bodies (MBS)
  • complex contact problems
  • traffic accident analysis
  • approval calculations according to EC and ECE Regulations, eg.

    - rollover simulation according to ECE 66 and EC 2001/85
    - rear underrun protection simulation according to ECE 58 and EC 2006/20
    - seat and seat belt anchorage points testing according to ECE 14, ECE 17 and ECE 80
    - CNG and LPG tank strength according to the ECE 110
    - another calculation according to international Standards and Automotive Standards

  • ambulance technic strength according to the DIN EN 1789 and DIN EN 1865
  • strength of a racing car rollcage accorging to the FIA Regulations
  • fatigue analyses of mechanical parts and structures
  • polycriterial optimization of mechanical structures
  • another technical calculations and their programming
  • creating FE meshes and models for demanding clients (eg. ŠKODA AUTO a.s.)





VCA provides independently or in cooperation with business partners many other services:

  • design of mechanical structures
  • basic material testing
  • consulting service in strength and design of mechanical structures
  • preparation and technical support
    for approval applications
  • other engineering services
