Aerospace & Defense Webinar Series

The aerospace and defense (A&D) industry has been at the leading edge of the development and adoption of simulation technology since the introduction of computerized tools. The reason is simple: It works in a high-reward/high-risk design space, in which the cost of failure is too high. An engineering success like the Space Shuttle’s first manned flight would have been impossible without the extensive use of reliable and accurate computer simulations that guaranteed all systems and components were working correctly.

In this webinar series, we will explore how Ansys simulation technology is used by the A&D industry to design and analyze a wide number of cutting-edge applications, and how simulation can help make these products better and safer.

Aerospace & Defense Mini Webinar Series

The aerospace and defense (A&D) industry has been at the leading edge of the development and adoption of simulation technology since the first introduction of computerized tools. The reason is simple: The design space in which the A&D industry works is a high-risk/high-reward space, in which the cost of failure is too high to be acceptable. In this 15-minute mini webinar series, we will explore how Ansys simulation technology is used by the A&D industry to design and analyze a wide number of cutting-edge applications and how simulation can help with making these products better, safer and of higher value.
