Join ANSYS as we host our partner, Dynardo, developer of optiSLang for a presentation, lunch and networking event. ANSYS optiSLang is the leading edge software for CAE-based Robust Design Optimization (RDO) in virtual prototyping.

We are pleased to announce our speaker, Dr. Johannes Will, joining us from Germany. He is the Founder and CEO of Dynardo GmbH with over 15 years of experience introducing parametric optimization and RDO to many different industries.

ANSYS optiSLang is a general purpose tool for variation analysis using CAE-based design points (and/or measured data points) for the purpose of:

  • Sensitivity analysis and data mining
  • Calibration of virtual models to physical tests
  • Optimization of product performance
  • Quantification of product robustness and reliability
  • Robust design optimization

ANSYS optiSLang integrates any ANSYS CAE tool as well as any third party CAD/CAE tool and enables engineers and designers to investigate the design sensitivities, improve designs, and validate product quality with easy-to-use wizard based workflows with a minimum number for design points.

The presentation will discuss the application of parameter-based sensitivity analysis, optimization, robustness and reliability analysis, as well as robust design optimization using examples from different industries like biomedical, aero structures, turbomachinery and others.

Seating is limited to 30 registrants, lecture format.  Lunch will be provided.
