Democratizing Simulation: Can Non-Experts Safely Utilize Advanced Modeling Tools and Workflows?
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!
What good is a revolution if it doesn’t result in change? See how companies are achieving measurable improvements in time savings, simulation data…
Can Non-Experts Safely Utilize Advanced Modeling and Workflows? The presenters highlight two industry case studies to demonstrate democratization at work.
Rev-Sim.Org is a collaboration driven by simulation experts, non-experts and users like you! Send us your Democratizing Simulation content and we’ll review and add it to the site if its a good fit.

UberCloud project #211 on Deep Learning for Fluid Flow Prediction in the Advania Cloud has been performed solely for educational purposes, for our wider engineering community.Solution Providers:
CFD is demanding both in terms of computing power and simulation time. Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) can learn complex dependencies between high-dimensional variables. In this UberCloud case study, the goal of the approach is to apply an ANN to solve fluid flow problems to significantly decrease time-to-solution while preserving much of the accuracy of a traditional CFD solver.View Story
9th-grade students in Norway designed flying boats in ANSYS Discovery Live, 3D-printed them, and ‘crowned’ their 3-month tech course with a final competition for the best flying boat.Solution Providers:
This UberCloud project #208 has been performed by a class of 9th-grade middle-school students in Norway, supported by their physics teacher, ANSYS channel partner EDRMedeso, and HPC Cloud service provider UberCloud. On Microsoft’s Azure Cloud they used ANSYS Discovery Live which provides real-time 3D simulation, tightly coupled with geometry modeling, to enable interactive design exploration and rapid product innovation.View Story
India’s National Institute of Health was able for schizophrenia to replace highly risky brain-invasive operations with an innovative technique of non-invasive low-risk treatment based on CAE.Solution Providers:
This UberCloud use case #200 describes how India’s National Institute of Health was able for schizophrenia – and potentially Parkinson’s disease, depression, and other brain disorders – to replace the current highly risky procedure of brain-invasive operations with an innovative technique of non-invasive low-risk treatment based on CAE that is also significantly more affordable.View Story
Material Transfer Vehicle (MTV) manufacturer, Astec Industries, finds smooth roads with ANSYS.Solution Providers:
With EASA, Air International has leveraged the benefits of simulation and modeling by creating custom, task-specific web apps simplifying the use of many CAE workflows, including tools such as Fluent, NX/NASTRAN, and CATIA. Furthermore, expert knowledge was embedded into the streamlined user interface, making modeling and simulation available to engineers and designers with little or no CAE experience while also significantly accelerating the process for experienced users.
In addition to significant ease of use improvements, Air International benefited from many other EASA advantages, including:
The problem of legacy applications
Over the past four decades, IT staff at Monsanto have developed many custom applications to help the firm’s managers, engineers, and plant operators to solve problems specific to the business. However, these applications were developed in the days of DOS; being command line driven, they were very difficult to use, especially for younger employees accustomed to more modern graphical user interfaces.
Moving to a new environment
Monsanto decided to utilize EASA’s patented approach. EASA enables rapid codeless creation and deployment of web-based applications that connect to one or more existing software tools.
Unified model representation enhances knowledge-capture efficiency across multiple disciplinesView Summary
Using simulation in product development is nothing new. There are many simulation tools that help users solve practical issues.
Beyond achieving success with important singular issues, engineers and their companies have been trying to achieve a global solution at a system level. This type of solution encompasses subsystems or components from domains such as mechanical, electrical, thermal and controls, and includes embedded software.View Blog Post

The Democratization of Simulation with Intelligent Templates
Realizing the Full Benefits of Simulation
An “Intelligent Template” is an innovative concept in product development that focuses on the automation of simulation processes across a product family. The template leverages the common functional architecture across the product family using a concept called the Abstract Model. This functional model of the product family is independent of a particular instance of the product design and of its geometry. The template captures the simulation best practices of the organization and enforces them when it is executed on a particular instance of the product design.
Experts must create the templates, but non-experts can use them reliably.View Article
