In today’s uncertain economic climate, companies are continually looking towards the design and manufacturing process as a way of increasing efficiency and contributing to the bottom line. Recent research shows that best-in-class companies make the greatest use of simulation technology – an important consideration when competitiveness is vital in a turbulent marketplace.
Following on from the outstanding success of the previous conference held in 2008, the NAFEMS UK Conference 2010 was again the country’s premier conference on Simulation Technology for the Engineering Analysis Community. Sponsored by Simulia, it brought together leading industrial practitioners, consultancies, academic researchers and software developers with a common interest in engineering analysis.
Once again, this two day conference covered the current best practices and state-of-the-art in FEA, CFD and associated technologies, providing attendees with the most comprehensive overview of the technology available. In addition to the informative main conference sessions, this time the conference was further enhanced by activities hosted by a number of the NAFEMS Working Groups.
The conference aimed to increase awareness and provide a discussion forum for topics that are important and relevant to engineering industrialists and academics. NAFEMS is acutely aware that the economic climate at the time, placed as even greater focus on the business benefit that simulation can bring to industry. In response to this, the conference endeavoured to highlight the economic issues associated with simulation.
