The Conference for Engineering
Simulation and Analysis

25 - 26 October 2022
Göteborg, Sweden

V​iew Conference Presentations

The conference will provide a unique, independent, neutral, and comprehensive overview of the current state of art in the engineering simulation analysis.

  • Keynote presentations form: Aker Solutions, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and Volvo Cars
  • Technical presentations from industry, research and academic
  • Workshops on PCB and Uncertainty Quantification (UQ)
  • Short courses in CFD
  • Hardware and software exhibition
  • Networking, exchange of experiences, discussions
  • Open for all, free for NAFEMS members (*)

    NAFEMS, the independent international association for the engineering modelling, analysis and simulation community, held its Nordic conference from 25 - 26 October in Göteborg, Sweden.

    This two-day conference focused 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 increased awareness and provided 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.

    The conference welcomed participation from every type of organisation – large and small, across all industry sectors. It was open to both, members and non-members of NAFEMS, with members able to attend the event for free towards using four seminar credits, as part of their membership benefits package.

    Thank you for your participation..

    Summary of Key Outcomes from the NAFEMS NORDIC 2022 Regional Conference / Farewell
    NAFEMS Nordic Steering Committee End of conference


    Workshop UQ
    A Human Friendly Introduction to Uncertainty Quantification in Engineering Simulations Moderated by F. Santandrea (RISE) In this interactive participants will have the opportunity to familiarize with the main steps of uncertainty quantification (i.e., input modelling, propagation, output analysis) by jointly analysing an example model under the guidance of the instructor. Constructive criticism and active participation to the discussion are strongly encouraged. No prior knowledge about UQ is required to attend this training but, if available, it will be appropriately updated in conformity with Bayes’ theorem.

    Workshop PCB
    Challenges in PCB Analysis Moderated by B. Isaksen (Dynova) Discussion topics: How important is the correct representation of the PCB? The electronic components will alter the mass and the stiffness of the PCB. Which detail is required for modelling the PCB? A PCB can consist of several layers of Glass Fibre and the stiffness is dependent of no. of layers. When is it required to model the anisotropy of the PCB? Details of modelling? Clamping of PCB edges? How can we discretize a PCB to arrive at Steinberg results in a complete system?

    CFD short trainings
    • Introduction to Practical CFD
      Through a simple and moderately technical approach, this course covers topics such as the role of CFD, basic formulation, governing equations and use of model equations, steps in CFD process, need for turbulence modeling, and CFD best practices.
      Trainer: Kamran Fouladi (NAFEMS CFD Instructor)
    • Elements of Turbulence Modelling
      This course is focused on understanding turbulence, need for turbulence modeling, and various modeling approaches. Discussions on the advantages and limitations of various models should help CFD users in selecting appropriate turbulence models for their simulations.
      Trainer: Kamran Fouladi (NAFEMS CFD Instructor)
