High Performance Simulation for Interactive Design
A European Union ESPRIT Project
The major objective of this European project was to create a high-performance simulation capability by implementing the latest numerical algorithms for parallel machines and to couple this with a CAD system to create an interactive design environment.
The designer uses this environment to create a design, guided by rapid simulation. Subsequent design changes are sent to the simulation process, which continue to be modified until the designer is satisfied.
- Improves the use of numerical simulation in the product design process by producing a very high performance boundary element analysis core.
- Integrates in a flexible way, with modern CAD systems.
- Provides a demonstrable, interactive design and analysis environment.
- Computational Mechanics (Co-ordinator)
