NAFEMS UK Conference 2012

Engineering Simulation: Realising the Potential

Simulation has the potential to transform a company’s engineering processes – providing unprecedented insight into product performance and inspiring innovation by allowing novel concepts to be explored and evaluated.

NAFEMS, the independent association for the engineering analysis community, held its UK conference during 30-31 May 2012 with the primary aim of helping attendees realise the full potential of their engineering simulation and analysis. The 2012 NAFEMS UK Conference explored the extent to which this potential has now been realised, and what more can be achieved.

The two day conference focussed on existing best practices as well as state-of-the-art FEA, CFD and associated technologies – ensuring delegates received a fully comprehensive overview of the technology available to them. The conference increased delegates awareness and provided a discussion forum for topics that are important and relevant to engineering industrialists and academics, with an educational theme running throughout the event.

This was the fourth NAFEMS UK conference, with each being undeniably bigger and better than its predecessor. Following on from the extremely successful previous conferences, the 2012 event was certainly the UK’s leading event on simulation technology aimed at the engineering analysis community – bringing together leading industrial practitioners, consultancies, academic researchers and software developers in a neutral forum.
