Star Wars & CAD Integration

I was eleven when I watched Star Wars for the first time “Attack of the Clones”. The idea that spaceships and other creatures can exist in any other galaxies brought me another vision of the stars. One of the major events … 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

Don’t Let the Ocean Knock You Down

Subsurface mooring deployment, recovery, and performance in current and waves For many years moorings have been designed using basic mass-drag-buoyancy calculations, spreadsheets, rules-of-thumb, black magic scripts, and a dose of ‘salty-sea-dog’ experience. With these methods, we can frequently estimate a … Read More

Anyone Up for Badminton?

Is it possible to study and optimize the performance of a badminton racquet through simulation? Is it art or science to design a racquet?   Would it be possible to reuse knowledge from other simulation disciplines and apply them on … Read More
