Sridhar Lakshminarayanan, VP & Global Delivery Head – Simulation, delivered the Keynote address at the Dassault organised SIMULIA Seminar titled “Simulation Powers Innovation”, held in Taj Vivanta, Hyderabad, on June 03 2016. Sridhar’s talk was titled “Transformation of CAE from an Uninvited Guest to an Innovation Partner”. He dwelt on how simulation has become the vanguard for product innovations & how it is driving new product development processes in virtually every industry.
Some examples of ‘Simulation Driving Innovation’ cited by Sridhar: Advancements in small overlap frontal crash, development of tweels (portmanteau of Tire & Wheel), usage of multi-physics to design HEV battery packs, light-weighting breakthrough in a pickup truck by a leading OEM, and the design of the crush can cross-section for this same vehicle.
This keynote address was well appreciated by the SIMULIA team and the dignitaries present.
The talk by Sridhar also dovetailed well with the speech delivered by the SIMULIA Brand Director immediately after his address.
