The CAE Guy - Building CAE Capability: CFD Experts vs Designers Tools

Building CAE Capability: CAE Experts vs Designers + Tools

Webinar - The CAE Guy


Now that CAE has gained wide acceptance in many industries (beyond aerospace and automotive, for example) and is used to answer many complex problems, how to implement it is the next frontier - especially as companies of all sizes are building their own CAE capability.

Should you continue - or even start - using CAE experts to solve all the FEA or CFD (or FSI) models, or can some of the more routine problems be assigned to CAD designers using the right tools? This balance gets to the crux of cost-effectively simulating real-life flow problems. This is a step beyond the numerical vs experimental debate and into how should you best use CAE resources for maximum benefit?

This webinar will focus on the trade-offs between using CAE Experts and implementing a Designers + Tools concept for solving and analyzing CAE models.
