Consultancy is always a fascinating activity. Each project brings new challenges, often unexpected, which we face armed with our know-how, tools and experience. Our only goal is to give full satisfaction to the client who trusts our capabilities.
The latest advances in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) have shown the value in using methods based on solving Boltzmann’s equation.
With additive manufacturing on their side, companies are realizing that they can effectively and efficiently make products with each customer in mind, going back to how things should be produced—for a market of one.
The engineers of the Ocean Cleanup project made use of SIMULIA’s XFlow fluid dynamics program. As a result, they improved the design of the retention barrier,ensuring that it remained operational even in extreme conditions, while minimising the expense of the tests performed.
Last November 15th we held our XXI SIMULIA users’ meeting: 21 years getting together with our customers and collaborators to see how things evolve, what is new and how simulation software is helping innovation, initially in the world of design and now also in manufacturing.
We are now on the way to achieve efficiently products that satisfy the specific requirements of individual users. This paradigm change, brought in by additive manufacturing, will generate more effective working practices and new business models.
Over 70 attendees from the more relevant actors participated in the Innoday forum, discussing the tendencies of a clearly advancing technology that entails a paradigm change from current manufacturing practices.
Today we want to highlight the momentum provided to simulation by the additive manufacturing of functional parts, a momentum that leads to improvements in general capabilities and benefits more traditional applications unrelated to additive manufacturing
With virtual simulation tools, the selection of the best alternative for a frame may be completed within days rather than weeks, while exponentially increasing the number of models and composite materials that can be tried.
