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

    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.

  • Deep Learning for Fluid Flow Prediction in the Cloud

    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.

    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.

  • The Growing Acceptance of CAE

    Simulation is being used for lawsuits in court, treating schizophrenia, use in middle school education and in deep learning.

    Solution Providers:

    View Summary

    With the following four UberCloud case studies we are demonstrating the growing acceptance of computer-aided engineering (CAE), especially in new user communities and application areas. Major reasons for this trend are continuous improvements in user-friendly CAE software, the ongoing price/performance improvement in high-performance computing (HPC), and easy and affordable access to powerful computing in the cloud.

  • Democratizing CAE: Lessons learned from an enterprise practitioner

    Bruce Jenkins (Ora Research) writes that a highlight of the NAFEMS 2016 mini-symposium was a presentation of lessons learned from an enterprise practitioner, Glenn Valine, Director Engineering IT at GKN Driveline North America, Inc.

    View Summary

    In 2015 Ora Research reported on GKN Driveline’s journey to democratize CAE with SPDM (Democratizing CAE with SPDM at GKN Driveline). “Our approach,” Valine described at the time, “was to create a virtual tool kit—one of three web portals inside a bigger system. This is the application that contains our standard calculation tools, both empirical and numerical.”

  • VCollab: Democratizing Simulation Visualization?

    Chad Jackson's 2013 BLOG on Visual Collaboration Technologies (VCollab).

    View Summary

    Conducting engineering simulations in today’s business environment can be challenging. Executives often give a begrudging approval to simulation teams to do their work. But its infrequent that those simulation teams are able to expose their work to the broader enterprise. There has been trends more recently, however, to expose simulation results in new and exciting ways that are more accessible to non-technical roles.
