“Numerical Simulation – the Quest for Reality”
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Lorna Everett.
This talk will explore the role of non-linear analysis in design within the built environment, and draw parallels and contrasts with the motor industry. As engineers, we deploy a wide range of analysis methods to predict how our designs will behave, ranging from back-of-the-envelope hand-calculations through to multi-million-element finite element simulations. The talk will demonstrate how the extra realism and detail offered by “heavy” non-linear analysis can sometimes open the door to a better design solution. Examples will be shown from projects featuring buildings, tunnels, foundations and cars.
