Dave Martin  in the blog “What is CAE?” discusses about Computer-aided engineering (CAE) is the practice of applying computer-assisted math-based analysis and simulation techniques to the product development process.

CAE combines computer-aided design (CAD) with disciplines such as finite element analysis (FEA), computation fluid dynamics (CFD), multiphysics, and engineering calculations.

CAE aims to create products, assemblies, and component parts that are not only validated to survive their operating conditions but also optimized for desired characteristics like weight and strength.

To understand CAE, let’s look at the origins of CAE.
