Computer Aided Engineering - CAE

CAE primarily consolidates FEA (Finite Element Analysis), CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), Advanced Parametric 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) and DEM (Discrete Element Modelling)

Finite Element Analysis - FEA

FEA (en.wikipedia.org) is a numerical technique for finding approximate solutions of PDE (partial differential equations) as well as of integral equations. The solution approach is based either on eliminating the differential equation completely (steady state problems), or rendering the PDE into an approximating system of ordinary differential equations, which are then numerically integrated using standard techniques such as Euler's method, Runge-Kutta, etc.

The Finite Element Method is a good choice for solving partial differential equations over complicated domains (like cars and oil pipelines), when the domain changes (as during a solid state reaction with a moving boundary), when the desired precision varies over the entire domain, or when the solution lacks smoothness.

Computational Fluid Dynamics - CFD

CFD (en.wikipedia.org) is a branch of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyse problems that involve fluid flows. Computers are used to perform the calculations required to simulate the interaction of liquids and gases with surfaces defined by the boundary conditions.

Discrete Element Modelling - DEM

DEM (en.wikipedia.org) is a numerical method for computing the motion of a large number of particles of micrometre-scale size and above

Advanced Parametric 3D Computer Aided Design - 3D-CAD

Advanced Parametric 3D CAD (en.wikipedia.org) is a consistent set of principles for mathematical and computer modelling of three dimensional solids. Solid modelling is distinguished from related areas of geometric modelling and computer graphics by its emphasis on physical fidelity. Together, the principles of geometric and solid modelling form the foundation of Computer Aided Design and in general support the creation, exchange, visualization, animation, interrogation, and annotation of digital models of physical objects.

Product Lifecycle Management - PLM

PLM combines the technologies above to make the full Life Cycle Management of any engineering system comprehensive, rational and easily accessible within the extended enterprises.
