EuroPAM 2002, ESI’s 12th European conference on numerical simulation will take place October 21-22, 2002 at the Antibes Congress Center on the French Riviera.
EuroPAM 2002 will, once again, bring together senior managers and talented engineers from all over Europe. The conference provides an opportunity to meet with peers and share experience and expertise with others. EuroPAM 2002 will provide attendees with more than 50 papers covering virtual engineering technologies.
""This conference offers attendees a unique opportunity to discover our new '2G' or second generation integrated multi-trade solutions which lead to eliminating the needs for physical prototypes during the product development phase,"" stated Alain de Rouvray, President of ESI Group. ""This is a key element in ESI Group's development strategy toward fully digital solutions for which the Virtual Try-Out Space is the target concept.""
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear addresses from major industry users and in-depth product presentations on the most up-to-date simulation technologies: - Virtual Prototyping: crashworthiness and vehicle occupant safety, fracture, biomechanics, durability, - Virtual Manufacturing: stamping and die design optimization, composites and plastics forming, casting, welding and heat treatment, - Virtual Environment: aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, vibroacoustics, and computational electromagnetism.
Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
With the aim developing a broader platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, the University of Exeter, UK, and Victrex, have formed a strategic partnership to introduce next-generation polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM processes.
