CAE Associates & ANSYS Host Seminar for the Engineering & Construction Industry

March 12, 2010

On March 11, CAE Associates and ANSYS, Inc. collaborated to host "Advances in Simulation for the Engineering & Construction Industry in New York City.  The seminar featured a discussion of role of engineering simulation for innovation in these industries and also featured a presentation on High Performance Computing and by Microsoft.

With more complex designs, stringent safety requirements and increasing energy concerns, designing or improving commercial structures is a critical engineering challenge. Whether trying to achieve LEED certification or demonstrate structural survivability, companies that innovate with new thinking and technology will lead the way.

Topics of discussion included:

  • Green buildings and energy efficiency (LEED): offices, atria, data centers, public buildings, underground trains and stations 
  • Specialist design/analysis considerations: seismic response, soil structure interaction, nonlinear response of large, complex structures
  • Civil/Structural/Geotechnical engineering: building, bridge, foundation and tunnel design, construction simulation and code checking
  • Wind engineering: pressure mapping, pedestrian comfort, structural loading
  • Fire and safety: fire modeling, smoke transport, fire suppression, structural resilience
  • Homeland security: blast response, progressive collapse, chemical and biological gas spread
