The Belgian Government supports SAMTECH to extend the capabilities of the CAESAM platform

Liège, Belgium, June 2011. SAMTECH, a European leader in non-linear CAE simulation, structural optimization and coupled multiphysics, is pleased to announce today the financial support from the Belgian Government to extend the capabilities of its simulation management platform CAESAM.


The Belgian Government implemented several financial tools aiming at supporting Belgian high-tech companies to develop themselves on new markets, to explore new projects or to engage long-term development or R&D investments. For some years, specific programs have been set up to support Belgian companies involved in trans-national and long-term R&D projects. SAMTECH benefits from this co-financial support to invest in ambitious and innovative developments to extend its state-of-the-art CAESAM, with Structural Optimization capacities.

In the frame of the standardization policy of the tools and methods deployed by numerous aircraft manufacturers worldwide, the mass reduction is still a key factor.

In order to integrate easily new and powerful optimization techniques allowing the analysis of increasingly large size and complex aeronautical components, SAMTECH will implement complementary functionalities inside CAESAM.
The objective is to guarantee the adequacy of the platform to the future needs of the industry.

The project is particularly ambitious since it imply to integrate the state-of-the-art Structural optimization features in a very short time since the operational version will be deployed by example at AIRBUS beginning of 2012”, explained Eric Carnoy, SAMTECH Headquarters CEO. “By co-financing such trans-national projects, the Belgian government helps Belgian high-tech companies to support a huge pre-investment. But it contributes also to enhance regional & international business, subcontracting, collaborations with R&D centers, local employment…and to position Belgium as a major player on the worldwide aerospace market, mainly lead by US actors.”

CÆSAM is a high level CAE centric Application Framework allowing the customization and the management of the whole engineering process, involving any commercial software and in-house skill tools. This environment based on Knowledge Based Engineering concept encapsulates customer skills and knowledge into Analysis Processes and Analysis Methods that ensures reusability in order to reduce Time-to- Market. CÆSAM can be linked to the customer PDM (Product Data Management) and lastly, thanks to its user-friendly and intuitive graphical interface, Data Sharing is provided within and across CAE analysis disciplines.
CÆSAM represents an added value for any industrialist facing with more or less complex standardization and rationalization problems of the engineering methods and computational tools. It allows a significant improvement of the communication between the various teams of users.
