- Completed NASA VAB CFD simulation in just 24 hours
- Shortened solution time with smart elements
- Produced results that helped NASA improve safety planning
- Won NASA’s Space Flight Awareness Team Award
Sean Stapf founded SE Corp., which specializes in providing high-end analysis consulting, after working for two decades as a civilian mechanical engineer at the US Department of Defense. The consultancy’s work, which involves advanced simulations for prestigious clients like NASA, demands engineering tools that are both robust and cost-effective.
Stapf chose SolidWorks® Simulation Premium and SolidWorks Flow Simulation software as SE Corp.’s analysis platform because of their CAD integration; structural, thermal, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis capabilities; and fast solvers. By selecting SolidWorks Flow Simulation software, SE Corp. was able to complete a CFD study on NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building in just 24 hours, replace millions of elements with smart elements to shorten solution time, produced results that helped NASA improve safety planning, and was recognized with NASA’s Space Flight Awareness Team Award.
