Isogeometric Analysis

5 April 2017 |  Hanau  |  2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

accompanying the Automotive CAE Grand Challenge

Bringing together design and calculation.

The goal of each company is to keep the cost of developing its products low and to shorten its time to market. With regard to the virtual vehicle development process, the challenge is the efficient transition from design to simulation and vice versa in the case of design optimization. The model transition (meshing) often is the most time-consuming step in the virtual development process. The approach of Isogeometric Analysis is it to use the same mathematical description for the design and the analysis model by eliminating the need for cross-linking.  This not only saves time but also prevents the so-called discretization error. The simpulseday “Isogeometric Analysis” is focusing the potential of closing the methodological gap between Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) in automotive applications. The simpulseday will give a state-of-the-art overview, will show upcoming approaches and offers in an interactive session space for discussions with other experts in the field of simulation method development.
