CAE in Support of Sustainability and Durability

LEGO House - Home of the Brick, Billund, Denmark

Extended Abstract submission deadline: 20 September 2019

We currently are experiencing an increased awareness of the impact on natural resources and our environment as a result of our way of consumption. There may be legal requirements that impose restrictions in the use of some materials as well as customers requiring that the products they buy are sustainable.

As a result we see a trend were the choice of materials and production processes will be made with aspects of sustainability as important factors. CAE is for many companies a key tool in product development and can be expected to play an important role here as well.

In this seminar we are interested in contributions regarding how CAE is used in product development with a particular focus on sustainability and durability. For example, how simulation can be used to predict product behavior and expected life while shifting to new materials. In a slightly wider context we are also interested in how packaging is taken into consideration. Functional requirements may exist to ensure that the product arrives to the end customer undamaged after which the packaging is usually recycled.

The conference will include keynotes, technical presentations, and exhibits.

You are invited to submit an abstract by latest 20 September (extended) to

Your NAFEMS Nordic team
