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!

  • Glanzner Dynamics Reduced Their Need for Physical Prototyping by 90%

    Glanzner Dynamics is a small design company based in Einhausen, Germany. They are improving HVAC duct dystem through cloud-based simulation from SimScale.

    View Summary

    Ductwork plays a crucial role when it comes to controlling the delivery and removal of air in both residential and industrial buildings. In the past, simplified analytical models were used to predict the flow profile of a complete duct system. In contrast, nowadays fluid flow simulation (CFD) technology delivers three-dimensional insights into the whole flow field and takes into account all physical effects, as well as the full geometry of the object.

    View Summary

    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.

  • Expanding Simulation with New Technology, Apps and Democratization Tools

    The industry is aiming to make simulation more pervasive. To do that, you must first make simulation usable by non-experts and ensure that there is a steady supply of experts to verify the works of others.

    View Summary

    This push for new users means that in 2018, further support will be poured into tools, user interfaces (UI), technology and licensing models that democratize simulation. Even tools like augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) give users the ability to better interact and visualize simulations. Tools like this will make CAE easier to use and more pervasive.

  • On-Demand Webinar: Integrating Carbon Capture & Storage Technology Using Simulation

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology is steadily emerging as a leading technology for the decarbonization of large-scale commercial powerplants. In this blog, researchers of The Norwegian University of Science and Technology study the effectiveness and implementation of CCS technology using Modelon's modeling and simulation solutions.

    View Summary

    Decarbonization and sustainable development of power systems have become top priorities in the power sector. In order to achieve an environmentally sustainable and stable power system, thermal power plants need to become more flexible, efficient, and produce lower specific emissions than what they do today. Therefore, one of the biggest challenges power sector companies face is successfully transitioning towards decarbonized power systems while being smart about investment and accounting for the variability of both renewable energy sources and demand.   

    Modelon teamed up with researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to prove how Modelon’s Thermal Power Library can be used to design a more flexible and decarbonized power plant. In this webinar, our presenters will walk us through their study of building a scalable plant model, using data from a large-scale pilot plant to validate their model, designing control structures, and effectively integrating Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) technology to lower power plant emissions.

  • SPDM: From Extreme Disappointment to the Democratization of Simulation?

    From Engineering.com - Verdi Ogewell posted on February 06, 2019

    View Summary

    Simulation and analysis (S&A) are not known for its simplicity. It has traditionally been the domain of experts. The problems they encounter are theoretically complex, and the software used reflects this complexity.

    Nevertheless, S&A has become a key area of product development. This raises questions like: How can it be made easier? How can we spread the use of these tools to a wider part of the product design community? And, can simulation process and data management (SPDM) help to democratize S&A?
