Eric Landel is an expert in system modelling and simulation, particularly in the automotive industry, having played a leading role in the numerical modeling and simulation department at Renault for many years. He started his career journey by being awarded his diploma by the Ecole Central of Nantes, producing his thesis on naval hydrodynamics.
After graduation, he joined Principia R&D (scientific Engineering company), where he developed numerous original methods for modeling in the fields of acoustics, hydrodynamics, aero-acoustics and CFD. In 2000, he joined the NVH (Noise, vibration, and harshness) department of Renault, where he was responsible for the acoustic performance of Renault vehicles, developing new methodologies for NVH.
For 10 years he was the Expert Leader for numerical modeling and simulation at Renault, responsible for CAE, system modeling and support for decision making. During recent years he has developed new concepts, strategies and methods for performing numerical modeling and simulation for complex systems.
He is a member of the NAFEMS-INCOSE System Modeling and Simulation Working Group and Chair of FISITA Digitalization Working Group.
