A Revolution in Simulation!

The Rev-Sim.org website provides professional resources and a collaborative community to help increase the value of engineering simulation (CAE) investments through the Democratization of Simulation. By the process of “democratization” CAE experts can put the power of simulation safely and robustly into the hands of those who are not experts in using simulation software, including designers, new engineers and even those in technical sales and support.

The Rev-Sim portal provides access to the latest success stories, news, articles, whitepapers, blogs, presentations, videos, webinars, best practices and reference materials to help democratize simulation in your organization. Ask questions and participate in discussions with your peers and with the expert Topic Moderators on the site.

You’ll also have one-stop access to simulation specialists, industry organizations, special interest discussion groups, and industry media, along with software and consulting service providers to accelerate the return on your simulation investments through democratization.

Join the Revolution in Simulation here to explore, educate, innovate, and collaborate with others who are advancing the power, reach, and reliability of engineering simulation!

  • BellaSeno used SimScale to maximize fluid flow through its high-end 3D printed implants Senella®

    Success story featuring BellaSeno – a preclinical stage medical device startup aiming to introduce a new generation of absorbable implants for breast reconstruction.

    View Summary

    The technological success of the Senella® platform depends upon efficient vascularisation of the porous space within the implant volume such that the infiltrating tissue is adequately nourished.

    Due to this, it is very important that the pore architecture of the implant is designed to maximise fluid flow (and maximize fluid contact with the implant surfaces).

  • Future Engineers Gain Experience from Design Software Democratization

    The democratization of design software is a trend that makes engineering tools accessible to new users through improved user interfaces (UI) and access.

    View Summary

    This trend makes it easier for the next generation of product designers to gain the experience they need at a much younger age. This experience will be a considerable boon to the engineering community once these youth start to enter the workforce.

  • The Democratization of CFD: Taking Off

    Computational fluid dynamics, or CFD, is moving toward democratization. Once the province of a subset of specialists, CFD is now reaching an ever-greater population of engineers.

    View Summary

    From its computational inception at the Los Alamos National Lab’s T3 group in the late 1950s, CFD analysis had been performed exclusively by specialized analysts who held Ph.D.’s in the subject and had devoted their careers to the discipline. But CFD has seen great change over the past 10 years, with a jump in the number of computer technologies available to all levels and types of engineers and to engineers at smaller companies have more access to CFD than in the past.
