SIMMETRIX AWARDED $1.9M FROM NIST ATP FOR SIMULATION TOOLS.
Building on the automated simulation modeling technologies developed and marketed by Simmetrix, this project will address the additional technologies needed to truly support simulation-based design. The emphasis is on developing the low level infrastructure to support the increased use of simulation as the primary means of design validation throughout the design process. These developments will result in an automated geometry-based simulation environment that interacts seamlessly with existing PDM, CAD, and CAE technologies to execute simulations that include explicit control of the approximations made.
"We're pleased to help support Simmetrix in this innovative and challenging research," said Christopher J. Currens, ATP Program Manager, "This new technology potentially will reduce significantly the billions of dollars now spent on engineering analysis and testing and give designers access to powerful new tools."
"It is well recognized that the use of simulation early in design leads to better products that can be designed faster and cost less," said Dr. Mark Beall, Simmetrix' president. "With the support of this NIST ATP project new approaches will be developed to enable complex simulation-based design systems to easily be constructed and applied to a wide variety of problems throughout the entire design process."
Simmetrix will develop and distribute the Simulation Modeling Environment as component software toolkits enabling CAD and CAE vendors to leverage this technology investment.
