VINAS Seminar - Improving Capability and Efficiency of CFD process

June 10, 2008 (Osaka) / June 11, 2008 (Nagoya) / June 26, 2008 (Tokyo)
Organizer: VINAS Co., Ltd.
Co-sponsor: IBM Japan, SGI Japan
/ Seminar Info / Program /

Today, companies are facing various challenges that need to be addressed promptly, such as increasing oil prices, appreciation of Yen, need for curbing greenhouse gasses, globalization and mass retirement, as well as related issues of passing on skills and know-how in a company and educating young engineers. Therefore, design departments of manufacturing companies are required to continually update their design work environment so that they can offer a solution for further improvement of their products and cut down developmental lead time as well as cost.

VINAS is committed to improving efficiency of CAE/CFD work process and quality of products, and this seminar introduces some of the latest technologies that can improve efficiency when handling CAD data and using pre/post-process and reduce costly operations. You will also be presented with our latest products and new services that can guide you to reach an optimal design of your products.

Specific topics covered in the seminar relating to the latest versions of our software product line include: pre/post processors that can handle very large analysis data and multi-physics solvers such as OpenFOAM; a morphing program that can flexibly control grid points in a way that is highly compatible with CAD programs; automation of design process; technological products that help designing turbo machinery. In addition to these software tools featuring many new and improved capabilities, we will introduce our new engineering support services.

We hope to see you in the seminar.
