Simulation allows companies to adapt efficiently to changing market needs and to disruptions in the supply chain, to plan digitally and to increase production with total traceability.
Structural simulation plays an essential role in the configuration of spent nuclear fuel storage pools, and its treatment and disposal.
Open Codex was created in 2012 to reconstruct digitally da Vinci’s ideas in 3D.
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.
Thanks to pioneers like Digital Orthopaedics and collaborative simulation platforms like 3DExperience, customised orthopaedic surgery is already a reality.
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.
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.
