Simulation software enables engineers to apply loads and stresses to designs, to see how they cope with real-world conditions. Simulation of this kind has transformed the product development cycle for many manufacturers and delivers significant value throughout the design process.
These platforms have been available for many years, and you may already use them. But if you’re considering getting exploring the opportunities of simulation, this blog looks at how simulation can benefit the design tasks you undertake every day.
