Industry slow to adopt computer-aided engineering

 “Although engineering design and testing is cheaper and easier when done virtually rather than with physical models and tests, the adoption of computer aided engineering (CAE) is still proceeding slowly, delegates to the Seventh Altair CAE Technology Conference heard this week. CAE makes the simulation, validation and optimisation stages of engineering development cheaper and more efficient. Working within the virtual world can even lead to more robust data. Physically testing a vehicle on sand, for example, instantly changes the test conditions whereas a simulation is easily repeated. Despite this, a significant amount of engineering work is still being done in the physical world. “ Read more at http://www.scientific-computing.com/news/news_story.php?news_id=1432
