The realistic simulation tools are accessible to allow conducting comparisons between the basic design alternatives without a specialised knowledge of the simulation technologies that underlie the virtual analyses.
From the experience gathered over the years in the study of many concrete dams undergoing the swelling problem, Principia is now able to provide reasonably accurate predictions about the future of such structures.
he design of many buildings and infrastructure must take vulnearbility threats into account. And, short of full-scale or real-life testing, simulation is the only tool that can guide the designer in that respect.
Using simulation software, mechanisms like window mesh and door fins can be optimized for minimal microwave radiation leakage.
Software packages like SIMULIA’s Simpack allow for Multi-body Simulation (MBS), which analyses virtual prototypes and allows engineers to predict and visualize everything from minor friction to motion and coupling forces that are important for a machine’s overall function.
We participated at Hispack 18 talking about the contribution of the digital twin to enable an enhanced collaboration of all the participants, reducing design times and costs.
Thirty years ago, Principia became Abaqus’ first user, and also first agent for the code, in Spain and Portugal. With the benefit of hindsight, we now realise that we made an excellent decision.
The dam was actually destined to fail from the very start, simply because the design calculations did not incorporate the true characteristics of the underlying ground. Principia was selected as expert witnesses for the accident.
CAE simulation tools can be of great help in optimising the cost and duration of evaluation of a package-s behaviour throughout its life cycle, including transport, without having to perform physical verifications on prototypes.
