Simulation Symposium 2020

Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020

Seattle, Washington

Hosted by Applied CAx and Siemens Digital Industries Software

The way we think of the design process is changing. Begin your next decade of engineering at this free hands-on event covering where FEA, CFD & design trends are headed. Whether you're facing fatigue failure in self-contained products or heat flow issues in large & small assemblies, or potentially facing a need for physics-based system simulation, our event will let you get hands-on with powerful tools and get your questions answered by simulation experts.

Held at the beautiful Boeing Future of Flight Center near Everett, our event will be in the heart of one of Seattle's many vibrant aerospace communities. Network with fellow colleagues and begin your next decade of simulation engineering with a fresh infusion of discovery and knowledge.

This event is free, however pre-registration is required.

Explore CAE Methods Hands-on with experts


Morning session is a hands-on experience for users who want to test drive FEMAP, STAR-CCM+, Simcenter 3D or Amesim. Discover what these powerful tools can do in real time while having questions answered by simulation engineers.

We'll have licenses available for FEMAP. For those interested in trial licenses of STAR-CCM+, we'll be providing those the week before the event. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you're interested in trial license of STAR-CCM+.

For our hands-on models of Simcenter 3D and Amesim, we'll have model file examples prepared and ready for questioning and examining.
