Simulation Versus Test

Simulation Versus Test

Linking computational and experimental techniques in industrial applications

The real power of simulation and testing can only be truly unleashed if the two methods are used in conjunction with one another. This seminar was an industry led event in partnership with NAFEMS, Institute of Physics Stress and Vibration Group, and BSSM. It provided the attendees with a thorough overview of how modern simulation methods compare against data derived from experimentation, from a range of industrial case studies.

This event was the fourth in a series of seminars which have now become an establised annual event in the simulation calendar. Once again the event provided attendees with technical papers of genuine interest and educational value, a packed program including lively discussion and a useful exhibition area.
