Femto accredited by FIA | Press release

Femto Engineering is starting the year with admission to the list of accredited companies of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The company is allowed, as the first and only one in the Benelux countries and France, to provide calculations for the certification of roll cages without the otherwise mandatory destructive test.

FIA and motorsport

The FIA provides certification of so-called Roll-Over Protection Systems (ROPS) in vehicles according to specific regulations. The recognition of Femto Engineering makes it possible to support a growing number of companies, in motorsport and defence among others, both nationally and internationally. Already a good number of calculations have been carried out for this to date, and due to the admission, the first projects are already planned for summer 2023 as well.

Digital validation

Over the past 25 years, Femto Engineering has carried out many impact and crash simulations for various vehicle types. These simulations enable digital assessment of structures in advance. Using the finite element method (FEM), Femto engineers calculate how strong a structure is. They specialize in creating a “digital twin” to perform such calculations.

Koninklijke Nederlandse Automobiel Federatie (KNAF)

Femto Engineering partnered with the KNAF to join the FIA’s ranks of European companies.
KNAF: “Performing this kind of testing in practice is destructive and costs a considerable amount of time, material and money. In Femto, we found a partner to carry out this kind of advanced simulation that saves a significant amount, while allowing you to test various practical situations digitally.”
