Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) & Simulation
The CAE & Simulation Lab provides advanced simulation support to various industries to predict structural and thermal/flow behaviours subjected to "what-if" scenarios. Coupled with instrumented testing and material characterisation, the simulation capabilities have been greatly enhanced to moving towards realistic simulations as well as to improve the robustness and reliability of the design.
CAE capabilities (linear or non-linear static, modal, dynamic frequency response, transient drop, flow and thermal analyses)
Structural Testing (Instrumented structural testing, material characterisation & modelling)
CAE Software (Abaqus, Femap/ NxNastran, CFDesign)
