Intelligent Simulation Technology Delivering Weight Efficient Vehicles

This post was taken from Altair Enlighten.

Earlier last year, I was invited to present at an Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) event – Lightweighting for Low-Carbon Vehicles. It provided an opportunity to reflect on a number of industry developments and articulate how increasingly intelligent simulation technology (e.g. structural optimization) is facilitating the development of a new generation of lightweight vehicles. If you have time, take a look at the recording of my presentation below and let me know what you think.

Executive VP of European Operations & Global CTO at Altair Product Design
My name is Royston Jones and I have been at Altair sixteen years. I was born in the green valleys of North Wales and eventually left my village for the bright lights of South Wales; Swansea University. It was there I was eventually persuaded to help the English with their engineering and left the principality. It’s been a great thrill seeing my passion, engineering simulation, gradually increase its impact on the design process. However, a bigger thrill has been seeing Manchester United dominate English football for two decades. I enjoy seeing my boys grow up and I am excited about how engineering simulation has become a key technology in creating highly engineered; Green products.
