Implementing Physics of Failure into the Design Process



Pressure to design products under budget and on time are the biggest challenge of Engineering teams. The challenge requires new methods to break away from the old design-build-test-fix iterative ad-hoc engineering flow. Physics based simulation is proving to be the way to make this change.

In this seminar, you will learn about the best methods and tools to incorporate the Physics of Failure modeling approach into your design process. You will gain information that will help you develop better, more reliable products faster and more efficiently no matter what industry you are in.
