Breaking Simulation Barriers

Simulation can be a key differentiator for companies who develop innovative products. Unfortunately, many finite element analysis (FEA) software products are too difficult to use, unless you are a highly trained expert. Plus, limitations in functionality and computing power have also crippled FEA adoption into mainstream design and engineering departments. A survey done by Tech […]
