Rollover Protective Structures (ROPS)

Rollover Protection Assessments

AEA is accredited by Motorsport Australia and the Federation Internationale De L’Automobile (FIA) to perform assessments of motor racing Roll Over Protective Structures (ROPS).

The assessments are performed using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) computer software that enables the ROPS to be subjected to the loads nominated by the FIA.

To assess a ROPS, we need to develop a 3D model of the ROPS to import into the software package. We are usually also able to import models from other design packages if they are in a suitable format (3D DXF, IGES, STEP).
