SOUTHPOINTE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 30, 2009--
ANSYS, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), a global innovator of simulation software
and technologies designed to optimize product development processes,
today announced the preliminary agenda for the 2009 European Automotive
Simulation Conference (EASC), an engineering simulation event dedicated
solely to this industry. Because the challenges in engineering road,
rail, racetrack and off-road vehicles are complex, the event provides a
forum for attendees to share and debate new practices and issues, to
network with industry peers and to learn about the very latest
developments in engineering simulation for the automotive industry. The
EASC’s focus on integrating multiphysics simulation into the design
process is expected to impact the next generation of automotive
engineering, resulting in innovative products that can be made faster,
more cost effectively, and with less impact on the environment.
"Engineering simulation is more important to the automotive industry
than ever before,” said Werner Seibert, industry solutions specialist
for automotive at ANSYS, Inc. “Several phenomena have converged on the
industry at once: huge variations in the price of oil, rapidly
increasing requirements for compliance with environmental regulation and
the global economic downturn. These are all challenging automotive
manufacturers to reduce costs while increasing their activity in
research and development. In building the next generation of vehicles,
manufacturers and suppliers must develop new technologies that address
the need for lower CO2 emissions and higher fuel economy.
Engineering simulation has a massive part to play in realizing both
these goals, so much so that I would undoubtedly say this 2009 EASC will
be the most important yet.”
The event’s keynote and technical presentations will offer leading-edge
applications focused on solving complex, real-world problems, such as
determining the best car shape for optimal aerodynamics,
thermal–structural analysis on a cylinder head, and optimizing the
process for paint spraying. Scheduled for July 6 to 7, 2009, in Munich,
Germany, the conference will feature high-profile presentations from
experts representing some of the most successful and innovative
companies in the industry. Speakers include Bodo Durst from BMW, Sandro
Wartzack from Brose, Torbjörn Larsson from the BMW Sauber F1 Team, and
Christoph Schoettl from MAN Truck & Bus.
This year’s conference will cover the full spectrum of simulation
aspects and account for the entire range of physics relevant to vehicle
design: structural, fluids, thermal and electronic design automation
(EDA) — which comprises industry-leading software from Ansoft, now part
of the comprehensive multiphysics software portfolio of ANSYS.
Consequently, applications in areas including mechatronics and radio
frequency (RF) simulation, for devices such as satellite navigation
systems, will appear on the agenda.
Application areas to be covered at the conference include:
Aerodynamics and fluid mechanics
Electromagnetic and electronic design
Noise, vibration and harshness
The EASC will also feature an extensive partner exhibition.
