Program Overview

Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) is a fast emerging field that takes CAD to another level.While CAD is useful in creating 2D and 3D models of a product, CAE software allows a deeper engineering analysis of objects. CAE thus finds applications in engineering fields like fluid dynamics, kinematics, stress analysis, finite element analysis, etc., typically where product development is concerned. CAE encompasses not only CAD, but also Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and some other aspects of engineering. Simply put, you can create 2D and 3D objects using CAD, while you can analyze how that object will behave using CAE tools. The automated design tools provided by CAE have transformed engineering analysis from a ‘hands on’ experience to virtual simulation.

CAE Process


First Stage, the object / product / system is designed, typically using CAD software. Engineers manipulate the parameters of the object / system being evaluated. These parameters include the physical properties, geometry and the limitations under which the entity is to be developed.

Second Stage, the entity is thoroughly evaluated using CAE processes like FEA, NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), CFD, etc.

Third Stage, the results are shown to the engineering design team and the parameters of the system / object are tweaked to get optimum results. The process is iterated till the desired benefits are achieved.
