IDAC is offering a free ANSYS open day for those interested in learning about simulation techniques and software. IDAC’s open day gives you the opportunity to visit IDAC and meet its computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation experts and ask questions about your specialist field.

The event takes place at Airport House, Croydon on Thursday 26 January and runs from 10.30am to 3.00pm.

The day will be split into two parts with presentations on different simulation technologies and their applications in the morning and breakout sessions after lunch where you can pose questions about analysis techniques with respect to your industrial field.

The breakout sessions will include:

  • FEA, including composites, dynamics, fatigue and heat transfer
  • CFD, including high and low speed simulations
  • Explicit dynamics, including crash, explosion and drop tests
  • Electromagnetics, including high and low frequency

One attendee from each company will receive a £250 voucher which can be redeemed against services provided by IDAC. This is an all day event where lunch will be provided.

To register, please visit and fill in the online booking form.
