A total of 24 students from the Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) attended the virtual industrial talk session on ‘Simulations for Building and Structures’ on 27 April 2023. Organised by the Industrial Linkage Committee (ILC) of the faculty, the sharing session was conducted by Mr. Wilson Kong, Application Engineer & SIMULIA certified Abaqus Specialist, RF Station Sdn Bhd.
Mr. Wilson has a wide experience in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for structures and buildings, product design and optimisation and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for structures and buildings. He shared his overview of the real-life scenario for a case study using the Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) analysis method and tool.
The students were exposed to the functions of simulation in the engineering field, how simulation is done by using Finite Element Analysis and Finite Volume Method, and how simulation is able to overcome common industry challenges. Lastly, Mr. Wilson shared the beautiful sentence “When simulations meet measurement, the future is now in your hands”.
