Simulation technology is generally well adapted in the industry and has become an inevitable tool for product development and optimization in many companies .
Most product developers constantly ask the questions of "What-if…?" and "Can we do this to our product…?" and tests with real prototypes have traditionally given the answers. Nowadays, such questions can easily be answered by simulating various loading scenarios of the product and hereby contribute with significant savings in terms of both, time and money.
However, most users still face challenges and as continuous development is taking place, new technologies and approaches are developed, information of improved practices and developments can be shared among attendants at this seminar.
Many challenges have traditionally followed FEA modelling and these have limited the use. Among these can be mentioned model size, discretization of very small features, computer performance etc., but recent development in both software and computer technology has minimized many of these and hereby made the simulation more useful. Both companies and universities constantly seek to improve accuracy of the results, time to analysis results etc. to benefit most from simulation.
Testing of products and implementation of testing results to obtain more realistic simulation is evident in reliable use of the technology and such methods, e.g. modal testing and subsequent model update, are also constantly developed to improve accuracy.
It is intended that attendants will get the opportunity to hear from others experts, from both industry and universities; how they manage to solve real-life problems from simulation of products during development, but also about new explorations, developments and similar from research.
Such improvements with examples of how difficulties are overcome by recent development are highlighted at this seminar.
The seminar is aimed at anyone involved in simulation at any level with an interest in how the technology has evolved at critical areas and how industry experts manage to solve challenging analysis problems. Attending is aimed at not just expert analysts, but also at a general and management level. As a main driver for simulation in general are business benefits during product development, the advantages of simulation also approaches people at management level. This is especially the case with companies not yet using the technology.
