Solving the Geometry Problem: Simulation-Driven Design

Over the years, computer-aided design (CAD) system geometry has evolved…from wireframes to surfaces to solids, and parametric to direct. Simulation, however, remains stuck using the same old beam, shell or simplified-solids paradigm invented more than 50 years ago. As CAD … Read More

IoT in Development and Production

Buzzwords such as IoT and Digital Twin are not new to the digital world. They have been gaining momentum in development and production discussions as the digital transformation of production becomes more relevant. But how is it possible to truly … Read More

Quantification of Metal Flow Lines

The design of a manufacturing process is iterative in nature. The influential process parameters which can be quantified (E.g. Die radius) are continuously optimized using metal forming simulators coupled with optimization algorithms. This approach is being successfully applied at various … 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
