This complimentary workshop is for tire analysts and managers who are interested in capturing realistic physics in their tire design process.  We’ll cover traditional SIMULIA products such as Abaqus and Isight, while also presenting capabilities with new products SIMPACK, XFLOW and WAVE6.  Everyone has heard about the 3Dexperience platform… so we’ll provide an overview of what it is and how it may impact your simulation domain in the future.

This is also a great opportunity to network with your peers within the tire industry as well with the staff from SIMULIA, Adaptive and Endurica.  Space is limited, so register ASAP.  Look forward to seeing you at this workshop.

General Session Topics:

  • Abaqus “Tips and Tricks” for Tire Simulation
  • Abaqus PRF material model overview
  • Tire durability with Endurica
  • Review of Tire Industry applications for new SIMULIA products:  SIMPACK and XFLOW
  • How to take advantage of Isight
  • And an overview of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
