MICDE Seminar: Hossam Metwally

Dr. Hossam Metwally obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Cincinnati in 2002 from the department of Mechanical, Industrial, and Nuclear Engineering. He joined the consulting group in Fluent Inc. (now part of ANSYS Inc.) a year prior. Currently Dr. Metwally holds the position of principal engineer at ANSYS Inc. where he is involved in technical support, advanced training, technical marketing, testing, documentation revisions, and business & product development. Dr. Metwally has also wide consulting experience across different engineering disciplines that utilize simulation; e.g. chemicals processing, aerospace, mechanical, and HVAC. Currently, Dr. Metwally is specifically active in the plastics processing area where he is continuously publishing and attending various conferences (ANTEC, Annual blow Molding Conference, Thermoforming Conference). He has received best paper award in 2006 from the Society of Plastics Engineering (SPE) Extrusion Division. Dr. Metwally has also authored several white papers on the role of simulation across different disciplines that are currently posted on ansys.com.

Role of Multi-Physics Computational Discovery in Product Development

2:30 – 3:30 p.m., Monday, March 30, 2015
1210 Lurie Engineering Center

The presentation will start by highlighting the industry current trends in the product development  process in general; PLM-CAE integration, multi-disciplinary optimization, democratization, and finally the need for speed. Examples from different industries will be shared and discussed to highlight how each of the trends has been implemented. The examples will cover a wide range of industries namely, automotive, consumer products, chemicals, medical, electromechanical, and civil engineering to stress  on the wide applicability and potential use of computational discovery across the different disciplines. Finally, a high level vision for running such an organization within an academic setting with business/industrial background will be shared.
