2015 SIMULIA UK Academic Forums-University of Glasgow

On February 18, 2015
Glasgow United Kingdom

This year we will be hosting three Academic Forums across the UK. Do not miss the opportunity to register for the fantastic event, spaces limited!
A SIMULIA Academic Forum provides attendees with a fantastic platform for academic users to meet with their peers and industry to share their knowledge and experiences of advancing methods and technology for finite element analysis, multiphysics, process automation, design optimization, and simulation management.

To register for a place please tell us which event you want to attend (Cambridge on 4th Feb, Sheffield on 11th Feb or Glasgow on 18th Feb) by emailing:

SIMULIA presentation -"The Power of the Portfolio"


SIMULIA presentation-"Optimisation Methods"




The Influence of Fluid Flow in Bone Strain-rate Dependent Behaviour 
By Solenn Le Pense

Abstract: In order to improve osteoporotic fractures prediction, we have to better understand the role of both microstructure and material properties on bone mechanical behaviour. In this study, we use bone tissue 3D images obtained with X-ray microtomography, and assume the solid part of this foam-like structure to be a porous material filled with fluid. Using a poroelastic model in Abaqus, we show that this assumption allows us to capture an increase of the apparent rigidity at high strain rates.


Patient Specific Modelling of Male Pelvic Cavity for Tissue Diagnostics   
By Javier Palacio-Torralba

Abstract: Biomedical engineering has benefited from computational modelling during recent years. However, many studies do not considered patient specific features that becomes critical for diagnostic purposes in clinical practice. In this work we use ABAQUS to study how these features influence the outcome of diagnostic procedures that test the mechanical behaviour of tissues.
