Advances in Structural Dynamic Simulation

Advances in Structural Dynamic Simulation

29 - 30 March 2022, Munich, Germany

Call for Papers

NAFEMS, the International Association for the Engineering Modelling, Analysis and Simulation Community is hosting a conference designed to showcase Structural Dynamic Simulation.

The numerical methods that are used to simulation dynamic events are relatively mature but new capabilities are constantly appearing that allows more complex behaviour to be represented. The use of model reduction techniques allows larger models to be analysed in a time efficient manner, helping dynamic analysis to be more easily integrated into the design process. The boundaries between the different dynamic simulation toolkits have become blurred and the engineer now has a range of options to choose from when tackling a problem. As the range of applications that can be tackled by the different toolkits increases it provides the opportunity to chain different methods together, to go beyond component and part simulation and start to analyse the whole dynamic system.

The conference will be of interest to all engineers using Implicit/Explicit FEA and MBD software codes to solve structural dynamic problems. Presenters from around Europe will be demonstrating how their organisation uses Dynamic Simulation to address topics like:

  • design of structures using explicit analysis to protect occupants from blast/crash events
  • fine tuning of vehicle handling characteristics using Multibody dynamic codes
  • mitigation of drive train vibration issues using implicit FEA.

Dynamic Simulation comes with unique challenges and the event will also :

  • investigate how AI/ML techniques can help interrogate and make sense of the huge data set of results produced by dynamic simulation.
  • demonstrate how to optimise in a dynamic environment
  • establish how organisations are integrating their dynamic simulation and test capabilities

This conference provides an opportunity to gain an appreciation for the wide range of methods that organisations are leveraging it design better products that operate in dynamic environments.

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

You are invited to submit an abstract by latest 4 February to

Your NAFEMS team
