8 Ways Working with a CAE Consultant Improves Your Bottom Line

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

If you’re viewing your CAE consultant solely as an expense, you’re missing the key contributions they’re making to your company’s bottom line. As advanced simulation software becomes more integral to the engineering process across industries, manufacturers are looking for ways to expand their CAE capabilities. Many of those manufacturers may begin by looking to hire CAE engineers, but this may not be the most cost-effective approach. This is where engineering simulation consultants come in.  While working with a team of […]

5 Use Cases for Abaqus CAE in Multiphysics Simulations

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Simulations that show the effects of multiple environmental factors offer essential insights to product developers. From the early days of simulation, incorporating multiphysics simulations has been a core need for engineers and designers alike. Real-world product performance is often dynamic and nonlinear in nature, with scenarios playing out in unexpected or hard-to-predict ways—at least without the aid of advanced simulation programs. Static, dynamic, thermal, electrical, durability, and other stressors will have compounding effects that are more complex than 1 + […]

Abaqus 2017- on Windows Get the setup files for Abaqus by following these instructions for download SIMULIA software. The setup files will be in the form of .TAR archives. The retrieved .TAR files need to be extracted in a way that allows their contents to mix together. We recommend installing the free 7-Zip program and using the “Extract here” option (see screenshots in the Abaqus 2016 section below). After extraction you should have a subdirectory named “AM_SIM_Abaqus_Extend.AllOS” containing all the […]

How Integrating CAE into the R&D Workflow Saves Costs

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Simulation can aid every stage of development, from exploring concepts, to validating designs, to guiding redevelopment. They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and in the business world, necessity usually means competition. Product developers in every industry face tremendous pressure to create new solutions to old problems—or new solutions to the new problems created by the last round of solutions. It’s a constant cycle of innovation and refinement, and only those organizations committed to improvement stay viable. However, […]

5 Applications for CST Studio Suite to Improve Electronics Design

With the increased capacity of high-frequency electronic devices, EM simulation is critical to the development of new devices. The observation that technology continues to grow at exponential rates is a bit clichéd, but it also has a name: Moore’s Law. Back in the 60s, Gordon Moore, the CEO and co-founder of Intel, posited the number of transistors on a dense integrated circuit board would double roughly every two years. That law held true for over fifty years, and while it […]

What Does Effective FEA Look Like in 2021?

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

If you’ve been successfully doing FEA for years or decades, you have no doubt developed an effective process for getting the job done.  But imagine you’re a smart, new innovator just starting out today — do you think you’re going to settle on that same old process, proven as it may be?  The reality is: What once took a day now takes an hour. What once required human decision-making doesn’t anymore. What was once cost-prohibitive to use isn’t anymore. These […]
