While engineers and designers can provide the best starting points, design exploration can quickly build on those parameters and generate the most effective and refined alternatives that we may never have thought possible. The engineering simulation community is now embracing this technology more than ever before.
The course investigates engineering simulation using the 5W1H process and provides the basic reasons for its use, including real world case studies and examples. It describes the basic requirements that are needed, such as computers, software and engineering resources including some history and briefly outlines a few of the most common methods employed.
To complement this issue on generative design, Ian Symington, NAFEMS Technical Officer, reached out to members of the NAFEMS Vendor Network nafe.ms/vendor to get their thoughts on the topic.

For simulation to have a broader financial impact on an enterprise, SPDM must be deployed seamlessly within the broader enterprise, especially as required to support implementations of Digital Threads and Digital Twins. This webinar will explore how these platform concepts can advance the use and impact of analysis and simulation in the coming decade.
A safe design is determined by attaining a prescribed minimum failure probability, or satisfying performance criteria within limits of its mean and standard deviation. The need for probabilistic and stochastic analysis is driven by the requirements of norms and standards and by the practical and economic constraints placed on experimentation.

Simulation Data Management (SDM) uses database solutions to enable users to manage structures of simulation and process data across the complete product lifecycle. SDM artifacts can be data, models, processes, documents and metadata relevant to modeling, simulation, and analysis.
Verification is the domain of mathematics and Validation is the domain of physics. Read more in this NAFEMS pamphlet.
Mathematically, a sensitivity is a partial derivative of some measure of the performance of a product, such as the aerodynamic drag or the stress at a point, with respect to a parameter representing a physical property of the product or its environment. In this context sensitivity analysis provides a measure of the effect of small perturbations, local to the initial design. Read more in this NAFEMS pamphlet.
The Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) was developed as an international standard for systems modeling. It addresses many of the issues associated with sharing of simulation information both inside and outside the enterprise. Read more in this NAFEMS pamphlet.
As the complexity of design solutions increases it becomes difficult to define the"worst case scenario” and identify the appropriate reserve margin for any given situation. This results in situations where designs are over- or under-designed. The use of UQ techniques addresses these issues directly. Read more in this NAFEMS pamphlet.
The digitalization of our lives today is driving an ever faster-paced environment. Developing products based on skills and capability in specific engineering domains is no longer sufficient. Read more about Systems Modeling and Simulation in this pamphlet from NAFEMS.
Developing a simulation governance strategy is necessary to build and nurture modeling and simulation capabilities and a company’s confidence in those capabilities. Read more about it in this pamphlet from NAFEMS.
Webinar Recording - This webinar establishes a fundamental understanding of Systems Thinking as a critical complement to the reductionist design approach. We will explore the need for pervasive simulation across the entire product lifecycle as a critical tool for the design, manufacture and maintenance of tomorrow’s interconnected multidisciplinary products.
NAFEMS Americas and Digital Engineering (DE) are teaming up (once again) to present CAASE, the Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering, June 16-18 in Indianapolis!
CAASE20 will bring together the leading visionaries, developers, and practitioners of CAE-related technologies in an open forum, unlike any other, to share experiences, discuss relevant trends, discover common themes, and explore future issues.
This webinar will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of Simulation Data Management for practitioners and managers. It will serve as an introduction to those new to the technology of SPDM. It will also summarise the state of the art based on the proceedings of the NAFEMS European SPDM conference of December 2018. It will provide a foundation for delegates intending to attend the upcoming NAFEMS International SPDM conference and World Congress.
At the NAFEMS European Conference in Budapest in October 2018 (focus topic: Multiphysics Simulation), the Moderator of the Digital Twins "How It Works" area of Revolution in Simulation (Dennis Nagy) presented a keynote on the definitions and current status of Digital Twins. Take a look.
That upfront engineering simulation stuff is fast encroaching on your job, and you're feeling adrift. What do you do now?
Opening presentation for NAFEMS 2020 webinar series Business Challenges topic
NAFEMS Americas partnered with a number of industry thought leaders and end-users companies to host a series of webinars.
Tina Morrison, Deputy Director, Division of Applied Mechanics, Office of Science and Engineering Laboratories, Center for Devices and Radiological Health, U.S. FDA will present at CAASE 2018.
Interesting discussion among members of the NAFEMS Simulation Data Management Working Group on the pros and cons of Template-Based Design Analysis.
