Workshop on 'Dassault Simulia' software learning program concludes at NIT Srinagar


Srinagar, Mar 17 (KNS): A three-day-long workshop on Dassault Simulia  (ABAQUS, ISIGHT, TOSCA, FE-Analysis) Software learning program concluded on Thursday at  Mechanical Engineering Department, National Institute of Technology (NIT), Srinagar.

The workshop was headed by Prof. Nazir Ahmad Sheikh, HOD, Mechanical Engineering Department, while Dr. M. Mursaleen was the coordinator of the three-day-long event.

The valedictory session of the workshop was presided over by the Director NIT Srinagar, Prof. (Dr.) Rakesh Sehgal, was the chief guest on the occasion.

He said conducting workshops on relevant themes is the need of the hour. NIT Srinagar will act as a platform for providing relevant knowledge to people who are involved in research activities.

He also expressed his gratitude to HOD Mechanical Engineering Department Prof. Nazir Ahmad Sheikh and the entire team of the department for organizing a successful workshop.

Institute's Registrar, Prof. Syed Kaiser Bukhari said all sessions of the workshop were an eye-opener for all participants and NIT Srinagar will be organizing such workshops in the future also so that students can get benefited from these initiatives.

On the occasion, HOD Mechanical Engineering Department, Prof. Nazir Ahmad Sheikh expressed his gratitude to Director NIT Srinagar, resource persons, and all participants for making the event successful.

He said the training workshop proved beneficial to many research scholars from the Institute, who are working on simulation in various fields of engineering topics such as Mr. Ali Imran Ansari is working on bone scaffold simulation for biomedical purposes and Mr. Avinas who is working on metallic foam simulation.

The software training program sessions were was delivered by Dr. Varun Sharma from EDS Technologies as a SIMULIA Consultant.

He is the recipient of Marie Sklodowska – Curie Actions and OEAD International Mobility Fellowship and has more than 6 years of R&D experience in the field of FEA.

Dr. Sharma has conducted R&D for Tata Steel, Ijmuiden, the Netherlands in identifying the best refractory material for the blast furnace. He has carried out independent research of pore size distribution and void ratio (Geomechanics).

He has performed experiments to check infiltration behavior and high-and-low temperature experiments in FH – Jena, Germany. He has done his Masters from the University of Applied Sciences, Jena, Germany.

During the event, the participants were appraised that ‘Dassault Unified’ FEA product suite offers powerful and complete solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems.

The speakers stated that software covers a vast spectrum of industrial applications. For example, in the automotive industry engineering work groups can consider full vehicle loads, dynamic vibration, multi-body systems, impact, crash, nonlinear static, thermal coupling, and acoustic-structural coupling using a common model data structure and integrated solver technology

“Best-in-class companies are taking advantage of Dassault Unified FEA to consolidate their processes and tools, reduce costs and inefficiencies, and gain a competitive advantage,” he said.(KNS)
