As engineering inevitability moves into the digital era, it continues to face challenges around simulation and modelling. There is a huge pressure on companies across all industries to move towards total simulation and digital testing in order to avoid the heavy costs associated with physical testing and the building of physical prototypes.
To support all engineering industries, the Simulation and Modelling 2019 conference will provide a forum to discuss the latest developments being made with computer aided and virtual engineering. Explore the advances being made with integration, optimisation and validation, from design stage right through to manufacturing.
WHY YOU NEED TO ATTEND:
- Hear from leading companies using simulation and modelling including Rolls Royce, Airbus, Amazon Web Services, Wood Group, Caterpillar Global Mining, EDF-Energy, Jaguar Land Rover, and AMRC with Boeing.
Discover new modelling techniques that impact industrial design output and competitiveness though more accurate models and efficient design.
Identify key challenges and potential solutions relating to a topic of your choice in roundtable discussion.
Learn from those working on new methods and approaches to the common challenges across industry.
Influence the next generation of software tools by discussing your specific needs and challenges with software developers.
Hear directly from suppliers and get an update on the latest technologies in our dedicated exhibition space.
NEW FOR 2019:
- SOFTWARE ROUNDTABLE WORKSHOPS & DEMONSTRATIONS: Ask software providers questions specific to your needs, as they showcase the latest software updates and additional packages and applications that support your existing tools. An opportunity to build upon existing knowledge of software basics and delve deeper into more advanced software tools and packages.
- This year we’re looking at examples across industries, with presentations from aerospace and automotive, power, defence and railway industries.
- There will be more focus around data handling, storage and analytics. Challenges around large data sets are inevitable with the increasing complexity of models and subsequent data output. These challenges need to be addressed across industry.
- The Simulation and Modelling Conference will be co-located with our seminar covering advances in thermo-fluid applications of simulation and modelling on the 18th of September, 2019.
Confirmed speakers in 2019 include:
Jaguar Land Rover
Caterpillar Global Mining

OUR SPEAKERS EXPLAIN WHY YOU NEED TO ATTEND:
"Simulation has become increasingly important across multiple industries. Whether it’s virtual development and testing of autonomous vehicles or virtual commissioning of industrial equipment, simulation can be a big advantage for a business helping you make decisions earlier in the design process and to reduce the need for physical testing." Mike Dempsey, Managing Director, Claytex
"Simulation can bring significant benefits to a huge range of organisations. It can support more innovative designs that reduce material costs through optimisation. It can help reduce energy costs by identifiying more efficient ways to run processes. It can reduce waste by improving product reliability. It’s not a cure all, its results do need to be critically assessed, and it can’t replace engineering knowledge, but it can help you get more information to support your decisions." Louise Wright, Science Area Leader for Modelling, National Physical Laboratory
"I really see the value in getting insight into what my peers at other companies are working on and how this is improving their capability. It provides a real think tank of process and procedures across industry which stokes a passion to improve your own working practices." Adam Brooke, Senior Principal Engineer, Modelling and Simulation, Fuel and Actuation Sub-Systems, Rolls-Royce
"To keep abreast of the latest developments in the exciting world of simulation technology!" Steff Evans, Director and Lead FEA Engineer, Evotech Computer-Aided Engineering Ltd.
"I think it is important as engineers in a growing industry to be aware of the latest ideas and to learn from each other. There is a huge range of applications on showcase during the event, but the underlying skills are the same and I always come away with ideas about how a new technology or method could be applied to my job." Dom Dathan, Aero-thermal Engineer, d2HAero
"It provides insights on what is the state of the art in simulation and what the direction is for the future" Giovanni Federico, Whole Engine Modelling Analyst, Rolls-Royce
"There is a huge and conflicting requirement set cascaded from industry to education on what graduates need to know. It is really difficult to validate and balance these. You might say ‘graduates need to be better at communicating’ but what is the priority for this compared to being able to calculate the mode-shapes of a system? This is an opportunity to provide feedback and to have your voice heard." Claire Lucas, Associate Professor and Director of Studies for Systems and Information Engineering, Warwick University

ABOUT MAGNA POWERTRAIN:
The Magna Powertrain Engineering Center in St. Valentin is an internationally acknowledged engineering supplier. Latest development methods and testing facilities enable short development periods
and highlights us as a full-service provider. Passenger car, Commercial vehicle and off-road OEMs use our innovation power to work together on the vehicles of the future.
Our software product FEMFAT has been used by all major OEM’s for many years. The ability of these software’s provides our designers the opportunity to design and develop vehicles and engines,
that are lightweight, environmentally friendly along with reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
FEMFAT (Finite Element Method Fatigue) is the globally leading software for finite element based fatigue life prediction. It increases the reliability and robustness of components in the automotive industry as well as in machinery and plant construction.
FEMFAT allows critical points in terms of fatigue to be recognized quickly and assists the optimization process at a very early stage of development – long before time and cost-intensive testing is carried out. This leads to more robust prototypes and thus to a reduction in the number of development cycles and expensive hardware tests.
The FEMFAT software, developed continuously over the course of the last 25 years, enjoys great trust far beyond the realm of the automotive industry and is considered the tool of choice for numerical fatigue analysis.
Simultaneous analysis of base material and weld and/or spot joints
Material database with more than 400 data sets
