Simulation-Driven Design and Manufacturing

“Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.”  – Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 – April 7, 1947)  Today, when I see a white car on the road, I can hardly tell what the exact color … Read More

Multiphysics Analysis of an Aircraft Radome

A variety of critical performance metrics can be predicted via simulation, including boresight error, transmission loss, bird-strike damage, and deflection under aerodynamic load. When it comes to aircraft design, engineers must meet standard requirements and consider every scenario. Would the … Read More

Combining 2D and 3D Simulation

We must often strike the right balance between the computational time and accuracy of our simulation. Simplification/removal of unimportant CAD features, locally refined mesh, and usage of equivalent elements are some proven methodologies to reduce the calculation time. If the … Read More
