Partnership in CAE Industry

partnership-in-cae-industry

Like in any other industries, the partnership is not new among CAE players, big or small. A technical partnership usually creates a win-win situation; at least, this is the major intention of forming the partnership. The two parties involved usually are not balanced: a big shark in the CAE or PLM market and an almost unheard ...

CAE in the Cloud, Is It Just Hot Air?

Cloud computing now is one of the fastest growing sectors in the IT industry. How will this affect the CAE industry? Actually, cloud computing is not new for CAE industry, especially for CFD users. 15 or 20 years ago, when you accessed supercomputers in the computing centre from home or office through dial-up modems (do you ...

Navier-Stokes vs lattice Boltzmann: will it change the landscape of CFD?

navier-stokes-boltzmann_350-350

For most people,  CFD is about continuity and Navier-Stokes equations.  But this is not always true. One of the alternatives for CFD simulation is the lattice Boltzmann equation (LBE), where the fluid is treated as fictitious mesoscopic particles (not molecules). If you need something to make you sleepy, please read the short (and concise, and free) ...

Bet on ecosystem or on disciplines?

CAE wars

The demand for simulation is growing in almost all industries and in all regions. This generates sufficient momentum for the organic growth in CAE industry. Even during the last global recession (2008-2009), most CAE companies reported about a two-digit increase in CAE software business. How to ride this wave to get a larger market share? Major ...
