In 2004, Hugues joined the Plastic Omnium Research Center in Brussels, Belgium, as simulation engineer. He is today manager of the R&D simulation team focused on hydrogen-related products, and responsible for building and executing a long-term strategy for simulation deployment.
Hugues holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and spent two years at National Research Council Canada in Montreal as post-doctorate research associate, working on polymer processing simulation before joining Plastic Omnium.
Hugues is also member of the board of simulation experts in the French automotive engineers society and member of the Nafems “simulation governance and management” workgroup.
Weld bead forming during manufacturing of an automotive plastic fuel tank
Plastic fuel tanks for the automotive industry are mainly produced using the blow molding process. During this process, two hot polymer sheets are pressed together to create a seal.
This seal has a typical double-bead shape and creates a local rigidity on the surface of tank shell, which has consequences on the mechanical resistance of the fuel tank. It is therefore important to predict this welding process to anticipate and optimize the pinch shape, and de-risk the product.
Thanks to Dassault France, we are investigating Abaqus CEL capabilities to simulate this complex rheology phenomenon.
Hugo DOREZ, born in Lyon (France) in 1989, graduates a master’s degree in physics (medical imaging) and a biomedical engineer degree in 2013. Then, he works for 3 years on his PhD in Biomedical Engineering with a goal to develop a new kind of instrumentation based on optics and MRI to improve the diagnosis of digestive tract diseases and more especially colorectal cancer.
In 2017, after a year working as a researcher at UCBL, he decided to jump into the entrepreneurship and built his own company : HawkCell.
EM simulations with CST for medical applications: example on MRI RF coil
EM simulations play an important role in designing RF coils for MRI applications. Simulation tools, such as CST µwave Studio, boost engineers’ work to design RF coils, evaluate SAR into the human or animal body during examination, frequency tune and match, Q-factor assessment, etc.
All these parameters must be optimized and quantify before building the coil and test it in real conditions. Because a tremendous number of iterations are generally done, EM simulations help us save time and money. This short presentation focus on how important it is to use CST for medical applications and especially in the field of MRI coil design.
Numerical Simulation Engineer on Abaqus and Numerical Team Leader since 15 years for both automotive and aeronautic industries.
Inflatable equipment simulation from manufacturing to in service life
Safran Aerosystems Cognac designs and manufactures inflatable safety equipments. The purpose of this presentation is to give an overview on how numerical simulations, done with Abaqus, have been integrated in the entire life cycle of these equipments.
The subject of customization of Abaqus will also be treated because it is one of the key success factor of this integration.
Hassan obtained his PhD degree in telecommunications from the University of Limoges-France. He then worked in the XLIM laboratory for 4 years before joining CST (Computer Simulation Technology) as an application Engineer in 2014. Since November 2016, he works as an industry Process Consultant at Dassault Systèmes.
Après avoir commencé dans le domaine de la simulation sur des techniques de dynamique rapide tel que du crash, de la vulnérabilité, de l’explosion,… elle rejoint les équipes Dassault Systèmes -Simulia en 2006. Les missions couvertes dans cette équipe du centre d’excellence Simulia consistaient aux diverses activités techniques autour de la Simulation telles que le support, les formations, le service, les benchmarks….
Depuis en 2018 elle a rejoint l’équipe d’avant-vente Dassault Systèmes afin de participer à des projets transversaux sur la simulation, avec un suivi sur les clients des industries Marine &Offshore et Automobile plus particulièrement pour la France.
Mr. Roux holds a language degree from Catholic University and a business degree from Ecole Superieure de Commerce in Grenoble, France. He started his career in 1989 in the CAD-CAM Market as Sales Engineer & Sales Director selling Computer-Aided Machining and Shopfloor solution for CNC Machines. He then joined Tecnomatix in 1996, specialized in Manufacturing Processes Simulation, and occupied the position of Managing Director in UK & Sweden
In 2001, he joined Exa as managing director for Southern and Western Europe and in April 2003 became President of European Operations. He was responsible for the Global Aerospace activity in 2014. Since April 2018 and after the acquisition of Exa by Dassault Systemes in November 2017, Jean-Paul leads the Worldwide Sales Operation for SIMULIA.
