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!

    View Summary
    Roadtec, Inc. manufactures material transfer vehicles (MTVs) that enable nonstop, noncontact road paving. The MTVs are delivered to job sites on flatbed trucks that can reach speeds of 70 mph. Depending on the flatbed operator, the MTVs may be loaded facing forward or backward. To design a safety restraint system that would protect both front- and back-facing MTVs, engineers had to model the airflow patterns associated with both configurations.

  • ASSESS a One Stop Shop for Simulation Movers, Shakers and Shoppers

    Like COFES, ASSESS (October 28-30, 2018) places an emphasis on industry thought leaders to inspire dialog. But whereas COFES’ reach is all of engineering science, ASSESS focuses on simulation, FEA and CFD, in particular.

    View Summary

    If you are in the business of making engineering simulation or a lead practitioner, here are several reasons you need to attend ASSESS (October 28 to 30, near Atlanta, GA), one of only two conferences dedicated to engineering simulation that features more than one brand of software. The other, of course, is the NAFEMS conference.
