Nikola Corporation and Link Engineering Company recently worked together to validate a Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) model against Road Load Data (RLDA) that was collected on an instrumented vehicle on a proving ground. The test required extensive instrumentation in order to collect data that reflects what effects typical roads and atypical roads have on a truck and its components, which is then used for simulations and predictive modeling. LINK was required to complete the vehicle instrumentation work within just two weeks in order to help the customer meet their timeline and collect load data.
