The dOCUMENTA is the largest exhibition of modern and contemporary art in the world; it takes place every five years in Kassel, Germany. In 2012 dOCUMENTA XIII ended its 100-day run on September 16. But just one month later, a different form of art took place in Kassel — the art of engineering.
At that time, more than 900 people from various industry, research and academic institutions came for three days to Kassel to attend the ANSYS Conference & 30th CADFEM Users’ Meeting aptly named “The Art of Engineering.”
This was the largest European user conference on engineering simulation, with 190 lectures, 26 compact seminars and over 30 exhibitors. Attendees had the opportunity to get up-to-date information about the latest trends and applications in fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, electromagnetics, and systems and multiphysics simulation.
One of the main topics during the sessions this year was standardization and automation of CAE processes and how this can help to increase efficiency of simulation applications. If you want to learn more about this topic, take a look at the Simulation Process & Data Management area on the ANSYS website.
In addition to enjoying the art of engineering at daytime lectures, the visitors attended evening events that gave them the opportunity to network and exchange experiences with their colleagues in the right surrounding — the technical museum of Kassel, which showcases fascinating masterpieces of engineering.
Take a look at the video of the event. And next year, plan on joining the biggest group of engineering artists in Europe at the ANSYS Conference & CADFEM Users’ Meeting in June in Mannheim, Germany.
