From Industrial aspect, a SDP is mandatory to effectively decide what type of products to bring to market place, schedule the development in existing scenario of uncertain and changing world and create a wonderful and robust product.
From the Academia perspective, the benefits of using SDP include experiences with hands-on products, applications of current technologies, applications of scientific principles and mathematics, studies of systematic experimentation and exploration of boundaries of technology. At the present day scenario, product design is the key battleground that all organisations must master to remain in business – to be competitive in basic level and for this reason alone, present day Product Design can take help from Simulation Technology. Simulation Technology is quite young in its development and applications aspects in Industries. Simulation Technology is based on Computational Knowledge and Graphics. Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) is one such Simulation Technology.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are part of CAE and is part of this Simulation Technology. When both Product Design & Simulation Technology are understood and applied, organisations get more benefit and longer stay in the business. FEA and CFD has become widely used and universally accepted procedure in many industry sectors. In order to derive maximum benefit from the available technology, engineers should learn about the much strength of numerical techniques. At the same time, recommendations on how to avoid the inevitable pitfalls are invaluable.
NAFEMS, the only independent not-for-profit organisation with the aim of promoting the effective and reliable use of FEA and CFD in Product Design, addresses this requirement by providing this two day example-driven workshop. This workshop course offers excellent guidance on how to judge which approximations are acceptable and appropriate for solving a wide range of practical problems. Of equal importance is the manner in which the results are interpreted. Advice is provided which allows the correct decisions to be taken, based on results which are known to be reliable. Interaction is encouraged throughout the course. The course is completely code independent.
