Design-to-manufacture event promotes product innovation through education in simulation technologies

Dubai, United Arab Emirates: As the demand for new and innovative products has increased dramatically over the past few years, simulation technologies have taken center stage in the industry. Aligning with the need to educate users on available solutions, Generative Design Solutions Middle East (GDSME) organized the Simulation Day / Design to Manufacturing event at Sofitel Dubai the Palm, bringing together key figures from the simulation industry to discuss the next generation of integrated analytics. tools for designers, engineers and analysts. 40 leading engineering companies from aerospace and defense, as well as industrial equipment manufacturing industries in the United Arab Emirates attended the event to learn more about how tools focused on the innovation powered by Abaqus, SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE can be implemented in the design process.

“This event aims to show how simulations improve design and manufacturing. We try to show how sophisticated simulations can be used at different stages of the design process to make a better product while reducing development time. This is a victory not only for manufacturers, but also for consumers,” said Mr. Rafal Dabrowski, Sales Director – Middle East and Pakistan, Dassault Systems.

Leading global industrial process consultant Omar Zohni showcased structural simulation solutions created using SOLIDWORKS, helping users use comprehensive structural analysis not only to guide decisions, but also to improve quality and performance. product performance.

Tools developed by SOLIDWORKS provide access to SIMULIA’s Abaqus technology and can offer accurate prediction of a product’s actual performance using CAD-integrated structural simulation solutions that implement Finite Element Analysis (FEA). This innovation is combined with a simple design capable of solving complex problems ranging from linear analysis of single components to complete simulations of complete assemblies with contact and non-linearities.

Attendees were also educated on how product quality and malfunction issues could be avoided through the use of fluid flow and heat transfer simulations. Macoumba N. Diaye, Principal Consultant in Global Industrial Processes, explained how innovation is accelerated in products designed by exploring fluid flow and thermal performance.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) predicts thermal behavior of products and flow in both steady state and long transient states. Product innovation is encouraged in a fully integrated multidisciplinary environment for CFD analysis, allowing project stakeholders to collaborate with manufacturers aided by detailed simulations to make informed decisions based on fluid flow simulations.

Hassan Chreim, SIMULIA Electromagnetics Industry Process Consultant, explained how attendees can easily analyze and optimize electromagnetic components to help products achieve peak performance. Using electromagnetic simulations, system design and placement are optimized for efficiency and reliability through understanding the impact of low and high frequency electromagnetic waves on product and system behaviors.

Designs leveraging electromagnetic simulations have been able to optimize antennas, microwave components, motors, generators, and other electromechanical devices, while reducing time to market. Additionally, exposure to EMF and other EMC hazards would be minimized to ensure products pass legal certification testing. Unprecedented simulation reliability is ensured by cross-checking to prevent device malfunctions, warranty claims and recalls. Electromagnetic simulations even provide hybrid simulations with the unique Finite Integration Technique (FIT), Classical Finite Element Method (FEM), Transmission Line Matrix Method (TLM), and other powerful methods.

Commenting on the event, Jimmy Joseph, Regional Director of Generative Design Solutions for the Middle East, said, “We hope attendees left our event with a better understanding of how their products can be improved through simulations. advancements. As technology advances, we want to provide this platform that helps innovators learn how they can take advantage of modern solutions. »
