Democratizing CAE: Mini-symposium within NAFEMS 2016 Americas

2016-americas-slideDemocratizing CAE will be the focus of an extensive mini-symposium within the NAFEMS 2016 Americas Conference taking place June 7-9 in Seattle. Building on last year’s pathbreaking Democratizing CAE webinar series hosted by NAFEMS Americas—itself a follow-on from a seminal forum on the topic at the 2015 NAFEMS World Congress—the mini-symposium will feature a rich array of proof-point case studies showing how engineering organizations across a wide range of industries are putting democratized CAE into practice today (click session titles to view presentation abstracts): Continue reading

Comet supporting Ohio Supercomputer Center AweSim program with cloud-based SimApps

Comet SolutionsSimulation Applications (SimApps™) will be available on the cloud through a partnership with the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) via the OSC AweSim initiative, its founding partners including Kinetic Vision, and other engineering service providers. By capturing and embedding the experience of senior analysts, SimApps allow simulations to be run more easily, consistently and safely. With locally hosted versions of SimApps already delivering measurable gains in productivity, cost savings, quality and innovation for leading aerospace, automotive and industrial companies, the new cloud-based SimApps will broaden access to Comet’s technology, not only making CAE expertise accessible to all manufacturers, but also combining high-performance computing resources with SimApps for a powerful, scalable simulation solution.
