Review - 4th CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference Ireland & UK, 12th & 13th October 2017, Engineers Ireland Dublin

Review – 4th CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference Ireland & UK, 12th & 13th October 2017, Engineers Ireland Dublin

“Thank you for all the effort that went into the conference proceedings. Airsynergy got great benefit from the conference discussions and networking opportunities.”

–  Fiachra Ó Brádaigh, Research & Development Engineer – Airsynergy. Nov. 2017

 

It was a great pleasure for all our team to welcome wide more than 50 attendees to our annual Networking Platform for Simulation.

Simulation and technology experts and ANSYS users from across Ireland, and the UK, from different industries and the academia, met to hear about the latest developments and applications. — Please scroll down if you would like to access most of the Conference presentations…

We were amazed to hear about the speed and agility ANSYS AIM and ANSYS Discovery Live, two new ANSYS products, will bring to our simulations. Further exciting presentations were delivered by experts from the renewable energy fields, biomedical and aerospace sectors, the Dairy Processing Technology Centre, as well as by experts from Motor Design, Dynardo (optimisation), ANSYS, CADFEM Ireland, UK and Germany.

In the spirit of our motto “Simulation is more than Software” we are delighted to launch a full suite of new CADFEM ANSYS Training offerings and the CADFEM Knowledge PortalThe exciting feature of these courses is their focus on the application of engineering using the ANSYS suite of products rather than just the process of using the software.

A big Thank You to our Sponsors – ANSYS and Amazon Web Services – for their generous support, and invaluable technical contributions to the program.

Stay tuned to the below – You will be able to download many of the presentations here soon!

We will also make separate product announcements and provide advice for your training needs. If you have an urgent requirement, please contact us right away.
