We must accelerate the world’s transition to a sustainable economy. Please share using #Simulation4Sustainability and #Design4Sustainability.
Manufacturing processes today span everything from aerospace to automotive, chemical processing to oil & gas, and electronics to shipbuilding. Yet, all these contribute to CO2 emissions and environmental pollution as well as intensive use of our world’s precious materials, water and energy natural resources. CAE today is proven to reduce waste at the conceptual design stage; reducing physical prototyping, minimizing noise pollution, delivering right-first-time customized and lightweight solutions, ensuring energy efficient buildings, optimizing materials usage and fueling the renewables revolution. CAE delivers manufacturing cost savings, productivity improvements, and ultimately quality products designed with the intent to meet all environmental challenges today from your conceptual idea to your product’s full lifecycle in the circular economy. At Hexagon | MSC Software we help companies accelerate green technologies and deliver renewable solutions to drive the shift toward a sustainable future.
Renewable energy is vital to reducing CO2 emissions and meeting carbon neutrality goals. CAE is being used to simulate renewable technologies for wind, wave, tidal & solar energy generation resulting in cleaner electricity sources and reduced carbon footprints by right-first-time designs.
Environmental concerns are fueling a massive switch to vehicle electrification; shifting from gasoline to electricity is a vital solution for reducing CO2 emissions and mitigating the worst impacts of climate change.
Material resources on our planet are under immense pressure due to overmining and under-recycling. To address materials sustainability, there is a need for a comprehensive materials solution that ensures environmental compliance and make responsible decisions for material design at a very early stage in the product creation process.
According to the WHO, noise pollution has an enormous environmental impact and does serious health damage to both humans and wildlife. CAE simulation plays a significant role in improving the acoustic performance for automobiles, airplanes, and other adverse noise sources to help build a quiet, pleasant and sustainable environment.
Lightweighting ground vehicles and airplanes not only saves materials, but also results in less fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions. Engineers leverage CAE technologies to reduce product weight, and also to ensure that a lightweighting design doesn’t compromise the product performance such as NVH or durability.
The building sector represents a large percentage of global energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Optimizing building HVAC system design and minimizing heat losses with CAE not only makes economic sense, but also creates a more comfortable living/working environment and a more sustainable world.
