RITES Ltd. Gurgaon

RITES, a schedule “A” Government of India Enterprise, provides comprehensive engineering, consultancy and project management services in the transport infrastructure sector under a single roof. Established in 1974, the company has diversified into new areas of business such as export/leasing, maintenance and rehabilitation of railway rolling stock, operation and maintenance of railway systems under concession agreements and BOT, BOLT and PPP projects.

Challenges:

  • Rites is working on projects starting from conceptual design to validation level using simulation techniques.
  • Main challenge being faced by RITES is to come up with optimized designs. This requires more than one iteration of FEM simulation in which the outcome of the previous iteration forms a part of the input for the next iteration after suitable modification in the geometry of the model.
  • The inherent feature of SolidWorks of tightly integrated geometrical model with the analysis engine, both sharing the same database, came in very handy for this work because of its capability of toggling between the model and simulation, resulting in significant time saving.

Benefits

  • SolidWorks interface is more MS-Office like therefore easy to use which reduces learning and reorientation of staff working on other similar software
  • Due to single platform for modeling and FEA, it is easier to modify the FEA model by simply toggling over to geometrical model by a single mouse click. This results in significant time shaving resulting into timely completion of project.
  • By using Duplicate Study Feature available in SolidWorks Simulation one can easily make Studies with different load conditions (no need to define fixtures , contacts and to create mesh again)
  • Reduces the number of prototypes.
  • Easy to copy Loads, Fixtures, Material and even Mesh from one Study to another study which makes work faster.
