NETME Centre

New Technologies for Mechanical Engineering

Introduction of Division of Virtual Machine Design and Testing (VMDT)

Division focuses on research, education and complex services in the field of new products development. Activities aim to integrate latest knowledge in basic research and applied sciences and multidisciplinary approach of computer, information and communication technologies in design process.

Activities of the Division are based on successful interconnection of computational simulation of continuum mechanics, fracture mechanics, tribology and technical diagnostics. Division has both internal and external skills for development of new products in all production phases: from idea through design to manufacturing of prototype and its testing. Research mainly focuses on universal use of computer aided design and numerical simulation (Virtual Prototyping and Virtual Testing) and real testing in developing process of new products. Main activities are focused on all aspects of product lifecycle in production sector and include development and design, engineering analysis, prototyping, optical diagnostics and digitization and testing of mechanical systems and materials.

Structure of Division of Virtual Machine Design and Testing is based on individual research and development activities.
