Automotive CAE Grand Challenge

10 - 11 April 2013, Hanau, Germany

10 - 11 April 2013, Hanau

In the last 20 years computer simulation has become an indispensable tool in automotive development. Tremendous progress in software and computer technology make it possible today to assess product and process performance before physical prototypes have been built. Applications of computer simulation cover nearly all aspects of product and process design form crashworthiness to manufacturability.

Challenges in virtual vehicle development
Despite of significant progress in simulation technology and impressive results in industrial application there remains a number of problems (challenges) which prevent a “100% digital prototyping”.

Grand Challenge as a platform for dialog
The automotive CAE Grand Challenge stimulates the dialog between users, scientists and software developers in order to solve these challenges.

Please visit our exhibition stand in the accompanying hardware and software exhibition.
