In such a dynamic application, accurate loads assessment is almost impossible unless measuring them during operations. Furthermore, when fatigue is studied, understanding of loads variations is very important as it can have a large impact on results. True-Load technology combined with ABAQUS was a big help to understand the dynamic loads on the car, which is an important step in order to improve the design and solve the problem.
