Gain Insights From Leading OEMs On Current Methodologies For Modeling And Simulation Of Adhesive Joints And Composite Materials

Modelling and simulation of lightweight materials & bonding joints can be an expensive process at design stage. Building prototypes and testing in a crash scenario is both time consuming and costly. Thus, it is imperative for OEMs to discover new methodologies to help to reduce the gap in simulation results and physical testing data.

New Methodologies For Modeling, Simulation And Testing Congress 2017 will be taking place in Detroit, Michigan on July 26-27  2017. The event will showcase over 20+ methodologies from leading OEMs, CAE experts and material experts to help you streamline your modeling and simulation processes to achieve overall cost efficiency at vehicle design stage :

*    Reduce The Number Of Physical Tests To Minimize Design Stage Costs By Determining The Outcome Of Composite Material Properties And Adhesive Joint In Modeling And Simulation.
*    Improve The Predictability Of Fracture/Failure By Effectively Modelling Adhesive Mixed-Material Joining Characteristics

*    Building Material Cards For Improving Accurate Modeling Results In Real-Time Situations To Reduce The Number Of Actual Physical Tests Required

*    Exclusive Focus On Simulation of Adhesive Joining. Full comprehension of adhesive joints in linear and non-linear simulation scenarios

*    Learn Current Best Practices For Building Composites And New Metal Material Cards For CAE Simulation

*    Upgrading Current Metallic CAE Model For Better Prediction. Analyze your current metallic material models and discover innovative solutions on how to increase their capacity to improve prediction failure modes.

The Only OEM-Led Event Focusing On:

Bringing Together Case Studies And Methodologies To Address Complex Material Cards, Accurately Predict Material Failure, Reduce Testing Costs And Increase Overall Efficiencies.

Built on the back of a successful 2016 event, this year's congress takes a more direct route to assist CAE, Virtual Design, Crashworthiness and Safety Engineers with exclusive case studies and methodologies to solve current challenges. Over two full days, this event will examine modeling and simulation aspects of: Adhesive Joints, Composite Materials, Metallic Materials and Mix-joining Techniques.

Unique to this congress:

Building Material Cards

All participants will have the opportunity to closely examine material property cards for both composite and metallic materials.  Led by expert OEM engineer's case studies, the journey will take participants from physical testing stage all the way to evaluating the simulation effect of composite material cards.   

Unique Perspective From Aerospace Engineering

Automotive and Aerospace engineering have mutually beneficial expertise that can be applied to both parties. Participants will have the opportunity to evaluate the modeling and simulation methodologies from Aerospace engineering and apply the essence to your practical work.

Comprehensive Understanding Of Adhesive Joints

Participants at the event will benefit from a detailed understanding of current best practises in modeling and simulation of adhesive joints. As composite materials use is fast becoming more prominent to meet light weighting requirements in the industry, understanding the behaviour of adhesive bonding solution in a simulation will help to reduce the overall cost at vehicle design stage.

Better Prediction Of Welding And SPRs

The congress will address the cost-benefits of the industry's best solutions in modeling and simulation of mixed joining techniques to better predict fatigue and fails: Welding, SPRs, Fasteners and Bolts.

Exclusive Workshops

Due to high demands we are also providing two exclusive pre-congress interactive workshops dedicated to addressing the problems of modeling adhesive joints and building material cards.
