I've been working with Altair, who do Finite Element Analysis for vehicle manufacturers. I had a great meeting with them a couple of weeks ago and have been emailing since. My interest lies in the crossover between aesthetics and disasters so I've been playing with very simple strategies for exploring this. The first is to mirror the geometry of a crashed car so the result is perfectly symmetrical. After working through the file conversion challenges I've finally got a model I could work with. It's very heavy geometry but here are the results of my initial tests. Very early days.
