NAFEMS Industry Focus: Oil & Gas

The international association for the engineering analysis community announces program of seminars, webinars and downloads relating to the use of simulation in the oil & gas arena

Glasgow, UK, March 5th  2015:

NAFEMS, the International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community, has announced a series of events and free downloads related specifically to the use of engineering analysis and simulation in the oil and gas industry. This specific industry focus will see free webinars and downloads available at as well as industry specific seminars taking place in both Houston (USA) and Aberdeen (UK) in the coming months.

A host of challenges face the oil and gas industry at the moment, with increasing pressure to minimize costs, safety risks, downtime, and emissions. As the industry looks to become ever more safe and efficient, simulation and analysis has a key role to play going forward.  The accurate representation of the reality of loading and response of offshore installations and their mechanical components requires a multidisciplinary approach, as well as knowledge of current best practices & standards to deliver the innovative solutions which are required by industry. 

As with many industries, simulation is now becoming a vital part of the engineering design process. With this reliance on the technology comes the need for increased use of the wealth of knowledge organizations such as NAFEMS can provide, in order to ensure that companies and individuals are leveraging best-practices in their day-to-day work, as well as carrying out simulation to recognized standards and as efficiently and accurately as possible.

“NAFEMS’ program of events and technical publications cover simulation and analysis across every industry, providing a global overview of the technology in a software-independent way”, commented Matt Ladzinski, VP Americas at NAFEMS. “Coordinating a series of events specifically focused on the use of simulation in a particular industry allows attendees and presenters to focus directly on the multitude of issues which are prevalent in their own day-to-day work, maximizing the take-away value for all involved.”

Registration and free downloads are available now at
