Learn How Trek Bicycles Used SIMULIA to Take Its Bikes to the Next Level

trek-bike-thumbIn its ongoing race to advance bike performance, Trek wanted to expand the use of realistic simulation in their design cycle across multiple bike programs.  In particular, Trek engineers wanted to better understand how bikes performed under the real-world rides of its professional racers.

Simulation provided new insights into the loading environment during extreme- use cases that will help Trek take its bikes to that next level without over designing. The result was that the larger
Trek engineering group can now tap into these capabilities and leverage field data to improve lab testing processes and enhance product performance across the enterprise.

“Up until then, I didn’t think handheld had the accuracy, the resolution, the quality, that the tripod-mounted scanners have… But now I know that isn’t the case.” — Jay Maas, Analysis Engineer, Trek Bicycles
