An innovator’s playground: how computational science is transforming design
This fringe event held at City University London is part of Clerkenwell Design Week. Over 3 days, Clerkenwell Design Week (CDW) attracts thousands of visitors to what is widely recognised as the centre of creative design in London.
Last year City University London ran a highly successful CDW event that focused on the design of very tall structures. We had key figures from international structural engineers Thornton Tomasetti and WSP, together with leading designers from Lynch Architects and Squire & Partners.
This year we will discuss how high performance computing has revolutionised design.
Engineering design has been transformed by ever-faster digital computers, advanced graphics engines and CFD/FEA simulation tools. The revolution continues through increased use of electronic sensors, wireless transmission, data storage, filtering and analysis plus the use of BIM, digital manufacture and the creation of new materials founded on nanoscale structures that were unthinkable a decade ago. With presentations from four leading designers this CDW Fringe event will illustrate how the digital revolution has shaped McLaren’s engineering solutions, Sir Ben Ainslie’s America’s Cup catamaran, Richard Noble’s 1000mph Bloodhound car and Thornton Tomasetti’s super tall buildings.
