Engineering Analysis & Simulation in the Aerospace Industry

Emerging Standards & Practices

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 | 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: 

  • What are effective ways to utilize composites in severe environments? 

  • What are some pragmatic case studies applicable to the latest aerospace engineering concerns? 

  • How do end-users and solutions providers collaborate to solve arising technological problems? 

  • How do we develop an organized and relevant system of data retrieval? What solutions are available to help me, and have others had success with similar applications? 

  • What steps should I take when exploring the widening technology landscape? 


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: Only attendees of the 2016 NAFEMS seminar on "Engineering Analysis and Simulation in the Aerospace Industry" will have access to the materials provided below. On January 4th, 2017, NAFEMS members, who did not attend this seminar, will also have access these materials.
