THE TGM WEIGHT DATA TOOL©
OUR SOLUTION TO YOUR WEIGHT-MANAGEMENT CHALLENGES!
TGM software tool especially developed to optimize the weight management
The Weight Data Tool© (WDT) is software especially developed to optimize the weight management of rail and road vehicles.
Its client-server architecture supports the analysis and evaluation of masses, center of gravity distributions and moments of inertia, as well as the calculation of axle loads, wheel loads and secondary suspension loads for vehicles in modular or individual configurations.
Integrated into the WDT 3 client is a fully parameterized, 3D finite-element algorithm that allows load calculations of all vehicle types including multiple articulations.
Databank server with multi-user access for each network
Hierarchical management of vehicle assemblies and payload components
FEM calculation module for statically indeterminate vehicle systems
WDT 3 - Rail: Static load calculations for various bogie configurations (Jakobs, standard, single-wheel and hybrid)
Payload calculation on the basis of 7 freely definable loading conditions
Graphics-based coordinate fixing and vehicle configuration, including graphic display of CG distributions for assemblies and individual components
Integrated support for the TGM Weight-Funneling Concept, for the early identification and evaluation of weight-driving factors and potential mass reductions
3D weight distributions
Report generator, including import/export (MS Excel, ASCII text) and printout of weight balances
Supplemental modules: expanded weight management; weight-saving potentials; construction materials; moments of inertia; time & cost management; plus various optional add-ons and calculation modules
Software compatible with Microsoft Windows / Linux / Mac OS X
SPECIALLY DEVELOPED IN-HOUSE FOR THE ANALYSIS OF AIRCRAFT DATA
Data management | Weight accounting and management | Reporting
TGM's self-developed SmartAct software tool facilitates the management and analysis of weight data for aircraft.
Thanks to its transparent reports and outputs, SmartAct reduces the risk of faulty weight-management decisions that can be critical to a project.
It reduces the workload of your weight engineers while allowing you to perform direct cost/weight comparisons in aircraft construction.
Additional functions include data management for components and structures.
Extended weight analysis (weight books)
Analysis of mass-related risks and mass-reduction potentials
Multi-user access control
EVOLUTIONARY OPTIMIZATION STRATEGY
USING ORGANIC GROWTH PATTERNS AS GUIDES FOR WEIGHT OPTIMIZATION
Bionic weight optimization thanks to improved strength and durability of structural design elements derived from the organic growth patterns exhibited by trees.
Calculation of notch shapes without stress peaks.
Simulation of load-adaptive growth by analogy to tree-trunk growth.
Material is accumulated and removed according to the change in load distributions.
Continual optimization until stress levels are uniformly distributed.
