Speaking Sessions

Speaking session topic and speaker information

  • "Improving Medical Device Design Robustness with Simulation and Six Sigma" by Ramji Kamakoti, Technical Specialist, Dassault Systemes

Speaker abstract

  • Numerical simulation has been widely used to design medical devices and also to assess performance, reliability and durability of the devices. Dassault Systemes SIMULIA corp. is dedicated to delivering leading analysis technologies to the medical industry. Finite element analysis (FEA) using Abaqus can be combined with statistical and probabilistic analysis using Isight to demonstrate how these techniques work together to evaluate the robustness of medical device designs. We demonstrate one such application using a case study from Medtronic pertaining to reliability study of a stent.

Highlights

  • Abaqus and iSight
