Efficient Preparation of Quality Simulation Models

1-Day State of the Art Seminar on Wednesday, 18th October

Efficient Preparation of Quality Simulation Models

Simulation methods based on FEA and CFD methods are routinely used in industry to support design of new products and to understand the performance of existing products. These methods have now been developed to a level where they can provide robust analysis data to verify design solutions and meaningful information to gain an engineering understanding of the likely performance of a product even before manufacture.

Although simulation methods are used effectively in industry, their application could be extended if the time and cost to create simulation models could be reduced significantly. Today, the time and cost associated with creating simulation models often prevents their wider use and alternative analysis methods are used instead including costly and time consuming testing to support new product developments. 

Meshing, property assignment and model assembly processes therefore still represent a challenging bottleneck that has to be resolved by software vendors and industry to enable the full potential of simulation methods to drive down cost and lead time for development of new products.

Call for Presentations

We invite you to submit your presentation for consideration at the seminar. Presentations are welcomed from across all industries and every domain engaged in meshing processes. Presentations from global conglomerates will share the stage with those from one-man consultancies, academics and industry leaders. 

This is your opportunity to get involved!

Submission Requirements

In the first instance, abstracts of 300-600 words should be submitted for consideration by 31st August 2017. Abstracts must be clearly marked with presentation title, author's name, job title, organisation, address, phone numbers and email address.

E-mail your abstract to Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be asked to prepare an extended abstract (typically 2-4 pages) and a PowerPoint presentation - full written papers are not required.

If you have any further queries, please contact Jo Davenport 
on +44(0)1355 22 56 88.

Event Objectives

  • Share industry experiences (simulation bottle necks, capability development needs etc.)
  • Opportunity to understand different industry modelling practises
  • Information on latest meshing/modelling tool capabilities.

Who Should Attend?

The seminar is aimed at people in industry working with simulation methods who would like to share their experiences and to gain an overview of state of the art modelling / meshing methods. The seminar is also aimed at software providers who would like to show the latest capability of their tool solutions and to provide an insight into upcoming capabilities.

Seminar Themes

  • Meshing methods including element types etc.
  • Automatic meshing of CAD- CAD/CAE associativity and PLM solutions
  • Rules based batch meshing
  • Industry experiences and modelling/meshing bottlenecks
  • Future directions in terms of meshing / modelling capability
  • Property assignment such as composite material modelling
  • Model assembly processes including automatic modelling of fasteners, contact etc.
