On the Goh
Dr. Eng Lim Goh, IT guru, breaks down technology off all sorts, tackling a wide variety of topics of interest to engineers and laymen alike.
Automotive strength testing for safety and comfort
HPE’s Dr. Eng Lim Goh visits Munich, home to 1.5 million people and the heart of Germany’s auto industry. More than 50,000 residents work in auto engineering, and the city has allocated 30 million euros to boost electric vehicles and the infrastructure for them. One area in which HPE is working with the auto industry is strength simulation, ensuring minimum use of materials while adhering to strict safety and comfort standards. Dr. Goh uses the example of a car door to demonstrate how HPE tests for strength with elastic range, vibrational, and destruction loading.
