Most of us are used to flying, and few of us think about the many factors that affect an aircraft’s performance. We spend a few hours in the air, and if we’re lucky we experience a smooth ride with minimal turbulence. However, for the engineers and designers responsible for creating these aircraft an immense amount of work goes into ensuring that these flights are as safe and smooth as possible, with optimal speed and efficiency.
This is another blog post in our SIMULIA Talks series where we talk to SIMULIA employees about current projects they are working on and developments they see in the simulation world. Recently, we asked Subham Sett, VP of Marketing & Strategic Initiatives for SIMULIA, to talk about the history of the battery and how simulation is helping to develop better batteries today.

Therefore, a great deal of careful design and thought must go into creating a Formula One car that can perform well on the race track. Many Formula One teams have begun utilizing newer technology to design and build their vehicles, including additive manufacturing, topology optimization, generative design and more.
