In its first edition, the Energy Simulation Conference (ESC 2016) will gather, in an only space, some of the country’s most important specialists in power and simulation to debate the main news and challenges of the power industry, particularly for the Oil and Gas industries. The event is schedules for October 5th, 2016, at Windsor Florida Hotel, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and is promoted by ESSS and ANSYS.

ESC 2016 aims to broadcast solutions based on the use of CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) technologies for problems related to Power industries. Aligned to this goal, the already traditional CFD OIL 2016 is part of one of the event’s sessions, exposing, as it has been doing for over 10 years, the main papers about Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), seeking solutions for current problems, and the promotion of innovation in processes and projects in the Oil and Gas area.

As well as CFD’s exclusive session, ESC 2016 counts with the presentation of papers involving distinct analysis types, such as structural, electromagnetic, multiphysics, and particle simulation.
