Second Computer Aided Engineering SIG Event Hailed a Success

Silverstone Technology Cluster

21st March 2018

On Tuesday March 20th, the Silverstone Technology Cluster’s second Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) Special Interest Group (SIG) event was held at the STC Founding Member EMW Law’s offices in Milton Keynes.

Presentations were featured by Simpact’s Dr Tim Williams, who outlined the methodology of, and advances in crash simulation, focussing on IMPACT in particular.

The evening’s guest presentation was delivered by Tristan Allen of innovation consultancy Room 44, detailing how Design Thinking is becoming ever more prevalent and how a company can strategically approach innovation in order to ensure they stay ahead of development and societal trends.

Last but not least, TotalSim’s Dr Michael Peake delivered a fascinating presentation on cloud based CFD modelling, outlining clearly the pros and cons associated with the technology. This led to an interesting debate among the attendees on the viability of on-line resources versus in-house developed and maintained computing resource.

Positive feedback was received from many of the attendees, highlighting the function of the events, according to Wirth Research’s Rob Rowsell, one of the CAE SIG Champions: “This second event demonstrated quite clearly the value of the SIG events, in that we saw some excellent knowledge sharing, and especially the debate allowed for many of the views of the knowledgeable attendees to enrich the conversation. It’s what the group is all about and so I am very happy to receive the positive comments.”
