Eduardo Oslé from Airbus tells us about the impact of numerical simulation in aeronautics and comments on how sometimes words manage to express concepts that eventually result in innovation

Principia has conducted bird strike simulations on leading edges and other parts of a number of commercial and military aircraft, both with aluminium alloys and with composite materials.
Competition between the future manufacturers will be based more on the offer of entertainment and connectivity services than on the vehicle itself.
The development of batteries for electric vehicles must balance the requirements of performance, weight and cost of the battery.
The F1 races provide a benchmark for innovations that eventually find their way into the production series, and increasingly simulation constitutes the essential tool in this phase of technological innovation.
It would not be very practical to build a full-scale bridge to test whether it works as intended against those loads and that is where simulation comes to the rescue. Principia has carried out studies for two dozen bridges.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform makes it possible to automate and optimise a parametrisation guided by the individual priorities of each musician, and to integrate in a collaborative environment all activities from the initial design all the way to industrial production.
In 2003 and 2004 Principia conducted a series of 11 separate investigations, all of them with a strong simulation component, in relation with the Prestige tanker.
Thanks to pioneers like Digital Orthopaedics and collaborative simulation platforms like 3DExperience, customised orthopaedic surgery is already a reality.
