Thanks to pioneers like Digital Orthopaedics and collaborative simulation platforms like 3DExperience, customised orthopaedic surgery is already a reality.
Virtual testing using electromagnetic and multiphysics simulation allows engineers to investigate the behaviour of the aircraft under a variety of scenarios and to see the effect of design changes on electric currents and fields.
Impacts occur all the time. Deliberated or accidental, we want to understand the process and predict its outcome, which is where simulation lends a helping hand.
In the process of designing a new container the best option is to make use of numerical simulation by finite elements (FEA), combined if necessary with computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
There is practically no industry or technical field that has not been strongly affected by simulation. But in the case of storage tanks for liquefied natural gas, they would have simply been impossible without it, at least with anything near the level of safety that we demand from them.
Numerical simulation is always a faster, simpler and cheaper solution than traditional prototypes in the early phases of design.
One more year, we learnt about the tendencies and developments that SIMULIA users introduce in industry through innovation of processes, designs and applications. A true luxury.
Natural catastrophes, particularly earthquakes, have been one of Principia’s key areas of activity. Over the last 40 years we have worked on a couple of hundred projects dealing with seismology and/or earthquake engineering.
An interminable list of technical fields have benefitted from the sheer size of the efforts and investment contributed by the nuclear sector over the years. Numerical simulation is not an exception.
