NAFEMS India Regional Conference

NAFEMS India Regional Conference

  • Case studies from National and International Aerospace, Automotive and Defence Organizations

  • Exhibition to showcase hardware and software products

  • Pre conference Workshops on Design of Composite Structures, Workshop Practical Aspects of FEM – Validation & Verification Methods , Practical aspects of CFD, Fatigue and Fracture, Shock & Vibration and Composite Analysis.

What is the future for Computer Aided Engineering (CAE)?

Where is engineering analysis and simulation going?

Where should it be going, and how will we all help get it there?

What are the business, technological, and human enablers that will carry the past successful developments, applications, and business impact of CAE to higher levels during the next decade and beyond?

NAFEMS, the independent association for the engineering analysis community, is holding  its 2015 India Regional Conference, with the primary aim of helping attendees answer these questions. The 2015 India Conference will explore the extent to which the potential of CAE has been realised, and, more importantly, what more there is to be achieved.

This two-day conference will focus on existing best practices as well as state-of-the-art in FEA, CFD and associated technologies –ensuring delegates receive a fully comprehensive overview of the technology available to them.

The conference will increase awareness and provide a discussion forum for topics that are vital to engineering industrialists and academics, offering attendees an unrivalled combination of industrial knowledge, expertise and forward-thinking to aid their deployment of CAE over the next few years.
