Innovation & Quality

Dr. Alain Demeulenaere, Managing Director of Numeca-USA, will present during the NAFEMS Aerospace Simulation Engineering: Navigating the Digital Thread meeting on October 18, in Lynnwood, WA (near Seattle).

The one-day event is expected to draw aerospace professionals throughout North America, esp. those working in the Pacific Northwest.

Demeulenaere will present Numeca's computational approach-- integrating mesh generation, CFD simultaneous analysis of noise source and propagation with acoustic radiation--applied to the simulation of the Advanced Noise Control Fan (ANCF) developed by NASA Glenn Research Center.



About the the NAFEMS Aerospace Simulation Engineering: Navigating the Digital Thread meeting

Aerospace manufacturers and suppliers are facing an increasingly challenging and competitive marketplace as their products are becoming more complex via tighter integration of systems and cyber-physical environments. That being said, there are rising interests to incorporate Digital Threads as communication frameworks for sharing product lifecycle information seamlessly and Digital Twin methodologies for assessing virtually the expected and future operational physics-based capabilities of a product throughout its lifecycle.  Utilizing these techniques in conjunction with the latest engineering simulation tools effectively, accurately and efficiently to meet business goals has never been more critical, as aerospace engineering continues to move into a highly-advanced technological space. 

Topics presented and discussed at this conference will address various questions, such as: 

  • What are some pragmatic case studies applicable to the latest aerospace engineering concerns? 
  • How do end-users and solution providers collaborate to solve arising technological problems? 
  • What solutions are available to help me, and have others had success with similar applications? 
  • What steps should I take when exploring the widening technology landscape?
