Modelling and Ergonomics

In the field of modelling and ergonomics methods we offer:

  • Ergonomic analyses, covering among others testing the range of limbs, field of vision, comfort zones, made according to the PN-EN 894 and PN-EN ISO 6682 Standards.
  • Analyses and shaping the relationships in anthropometric systems of complex mechanical systems based on author’s methods using the computer models of work and machines environment.
  • Early identification of technical hazards and health risk during operation of mechanical systems  (with use of Virtual Reality)
  • Expert opinions, prepared upon the court request, to recreate accidents and their causes.
  • Visualization of accidents circumstances and causes, creation of multimedia training materials presenting progress of events in a form of computer animation or video recording of the real places.
  • Development of interactive training materials, so called Serious Games, using state-of-the-art solutions of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality based on authors computer programmes and commercial graphic engines.
  • Creation of technical manuals, which include applications of differentiated functionality, realized by the author’s INSTO system. Preparation of the solution basing on S1000D, MIL-PRF-87268A standards in a version for desktop computers, mobile devices or in a form of internet applications,
  • Creation of internet application enable data collecting, achieving and processing, basing on own software programme solutions (PHP, JavaScript, MySQL)
  • Preparation of information materials illustrating the principle of operation of machines and equipment including advertising materials for the purpose of trade fairs and exhibitions,
  • Construction of mobile simulators for machines operation for the purpose of trainings (application recreating working environment and the selected subassemblies of the machine + real control components like remote controller or control panel)
  • Digitalization of movement of human silhouettes using the Motion Capture method with application of state-of-the-art IPI Soft solutions.


Activity in the field of virtual prototyping methods:

  • static calculations with use of Finite Elements Method (FEM), including linear and non-linear models of materials,
  • optimization of shape of spatial computational models (topographic optimization),
  • thermal numerical calculation,
  • numerical strength calculations of toothed gears,
  • calculations of dynamic phenomena with material and geometrical non-linearity (contact effects)  included – impact loads, simulations of collisions,
  • Multibody System (MBS) analyses, which enable to assess the kinematics and dynamics of multibody systems and to define the boundary conditions for FEM,
  • verification and validation of computational models,
  • creation of advanced Internet applications aiding engineering work,
  • numerical calculations for visualization of accidents, damages of technical means,
  • numerical calculations of flow of liquids and gases with use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method, including multi-phase analyses.

Examples of the project within the virtual prototyping:

  • Safe Trans Design (STD) modular system for shaping the safety during underground transportation
  • Identification of dynamic loads acting on load-bearing components of suspended monorail tracks
  • Dynamic loads acting on operators of suspended monorails
  • Determination of coefficients of static stability of machines for the set operational and load conditions
  • Strength analysis of the system for stabilization of angular gears
