Information Day: Electromagnetics

In many areas of today’s product development, simulations are crucial for the successful implementation of innovative solutions.

The functioning of many components is based on the systematic use of field effects for actuators, sensors, signal channels, coil transformers, and their interaction with the complete system with such factors as motion, heat and vibration.

The systematic use of numerical tools can help us to understand and characterise physical correlations and interactions in electrical engineering, mechanics and fluid flow.

We will demonstrate how you can visualise electromagnetic fields in virtual prototypes in the early development stages. This approach can strongly support you with the implementation of new solutions that are fit for optimisation.

The presentations and discussions will be conducted by our partner CADFEM Germany, the FEM Competence Centre for Germany, Switzerland, Austria.
Derek Sweeney, MD of CADFEM Ireland, along with the CADFEM Ireland team and representatives from ANSYS will be in attendance to discuss your applications and requirements with you.

If you would like to attend, please book your place now (go to the Next Courses page in the Training Section and tick Register).

Alternatively, please email Barbara at

Attendance is free of charge, but places are limited so please register early.
