Moxy Articulated Dump Trucks
Optima have completed a number of projects for Moxy, assisting in its development of articulated dump trucks. Primarily the engineering services provided have included complex finite element analysis (FEA), fluid flow analysis, design engineering and technical drawings. For instance, in the development of new vehicle variations, Optima has analysed the strength capabilities of different pay loads for new trailers.
The analysis provided has also included drop tests simulating a bolder falling into the trailer as well as tests to help the engineering team better understand the air flow and the effects of potential debris through the radiator.
