Integrated Computer Aided Design and Analysis

Objective: Bridging the gap between design and analysis in industry through Isogeometric Analysis 
Duration: 2009-2013 
Budget: 4.2 MUSD 


  • The Norwegian Technical University 
  • SINTEF Applied Mathematics 
  • Statoil ASA 
  • DNV Software 
  • Ceetron AS 
  • The Research Council of Norway 

 Based on technologies (e.g., NURBS) from computational geometry used in:
  • Design
  • Animation
  • Graphic art
  • Visualization

Includes standard FEA as a special case, but offers other possibilities: 
  • Precise and efficient geometric modeling
  • Simplified mesh refinement
  • Superior approximation properties
  • Integration of design and analysis
