The Use of Numerical Simulation Technology

The Use of Numerical Simulation Technology

Finite Element Method (FEM),
Computatonal Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
Multibody Simulation (MBS)

Engineering simulation can rightly be regarded as one of the success stories of recent decades. However, whilst the business benefits of simulation are real, and being enjoyed by a multitude of organisations in almost all industry sectors, there are companies not using numerical simulation in their product development process. Furthermore it is anticipated that most organisations only use 20% of their application software functionality.

This event is designed to provide participants with an informative overview of how numerical simulation can be used and how NAFEMS can help to improve product and process simulation and how NAFEMS can have a positive impact on quality, profitability, schedules und safety.
