Synergies of FEA and Product Testing

About this event

In this special event two of The Madison Group’s experts, Erik Foltz and Melissa Kurtz, discuss unique challenges in the area of computer aided simulation and testing during product development, specific to polymeric materials. They will examine various approaches to these challenges as well as the synergies between them to improve the fidelity and effectiveness of each method.

This event will deviate from a traditional slideshow presentation and instead take a conversational approach as the experts are presented with several application challenges by the moderator.
