Simulation/Advance Development

"Is it possible?"

Marcus Vitruvius Pollio asked this question in his "Ten Books on Architecture"*. In the work, which was written in ancient Rome and is still taught in universities, he describes, among other things, the path from the idea of a construction to simulation using models and calculations, right up to the realization of a building or a technical device. He did, of course, use simpler methods than we do today, but the question is still the same: Is it possible, and if it is, who or when did somebody else do it?

The working group of Simulation/Advance Development is dedicated to this very question in the field of ultrasound applications and technology. With the aid of various computer-based simulation methods such as PZCFlex, Ansys, Piezocad, Wave 2000, as well as a whole series of tools developed in-house, sensors, actuators and systems are analyzed and optimized computational. Literature and patent analyses clarify the environment, market studies investigate the chances and the potential of an idea or a product. Feasibility studies are carried out to experimentally examine the practicability of an idea (advance development, proof of concept), as well as parameter studies to establish the specifications of a future product to be developed.

The competences of the working group are both an integral part of complex development projects of the main department of Ultrasound as well as a direct service offer to support external customer issues.
