Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 | Montreal, QC
Aerospace manufacturers and suppliers are facing an increasingly challenging and competitive marketplace. The current industry demands that engineers design safe and reliable aircraft, meet increasingly stringent fuel-economy standards, and invent cost-effective approaches to the use of cutting-edge materials. Utilizing the latest simulation tools with accuracy and efficiency has never been more critical, as aerospace engineering continues to move into highly-advanced technological space.
Topics presented and discussed at this seminar will address various questions, such as:
NAFEMS Americas and invited speakers will cover these topics, and more, at, “Engineering Analysis & Simulation in the Aerospace Industry." Located in Montreal, QC, attendees from the aerospace industry will gather at this event, in a non-competitive environment, to exchange ideas, identify best practices, and drive the near-future direction of technology.
This event aims to deliver information and insights on critical topic areas in a manner that maximizes the “take-away” value for attendees. An event agenda and concept championed by several leading figures in the aerospace industry will provide the opportunity to learn about the latest technologies and practices, which attendees can later share and apply within their own organizations.
NOTE: All PDFs and Audio Recordings are only available to NAFEMS members.
