Centre for Sustainable Design, Modelling and Simulation

Profile

Welcome to the Centre for Sustainable Design, Modelling and Simulation at SEGi University. Our research centre is at the forefront of cutting-edge advancements in the fields of Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), Robust and Reliability Design Optimisation, Multi-Fidelity Modelling, and Control State Estimation. Our dedicated team of experts, state-of-the-art facilities, and collaborative research environment make us a global engineering simulation and design leader.

Mission: Our mission is to drive innovation and excellence in engineering through advanced modelling and simulation techniques. We are committed to fostering a collaborative research environment that empowers researchers, engineers, and students to develop novel solutions to complex engineering challenges. By pushing the boundaries of computational methodologies, we aim to enhance product design, optimise performance, and ensure robustness and reliability across various industries.

Research Areas:

  1. Finite Element Analysis (FEA): Our researchers utilise FEA to analyse and predict the behaviour of structures, components, and systems under various mechanical and thermal conditions. From static and dynamic simulations to stress analysis and vibration studies, we contribute to safer, more efficient, innovative engineering solutions.
  2. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD): Our CFD research focuses on fluid flow analysis, heat transfer, and aerodynamics. By simulating fluid behaviour in intricate systems, we contribute to improved aerospace, automotive, energy, and environmental engineering designs.
  3. Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM): We explore advanced CAD/CAM techniques to streamline product design, manufacturing processes, and prototyping. Our research enhances efficiency and precision in bringing concepts from virtual models to real-world products.
  4. Robust and Reliability Design Optimisation: Our centre specialises in designing products and systems that are resilient to variations and uncertainties. Through optimisation techniques, we ensure products perform consistently and reliably, even in challenging conditions.
  5. Multi-Fidelity Modelling: We develop modelling approaches that combine various levels of complexity to capture accurate and efficient representations of real-world systems. This enables us to strike a balance between accuracy and computational efficiency in simulations.
  6. Control State Estimation: Our research in control state estimation focuses on developing algorithms and methodologies to determine a system’s state accurately. This has applications in robotics, autonomous systems, and process control.

Collaborative Approach: At the Centre for Modelling and Simulation, collaboration is at the heart of our success. We actively engage with industry partners, government agencies, and other research institutions to address real-world challenges. Our interdisciplinary approach fosters cross-pollination of ideas and expertise, resulting in innovative solutions that have a tangible impact on the engineering landscape.

Facilities and Resources: Our research centre is equipped with state-of-the-art computing clusters, simulation software, and experimental setups. Researchers and students have access to various tools to conduct simulations, analyses, and experiments, enabling them to push the boundaries of engineering knowledge.
