In an interview, Dublin City University professor Patricia Moore in Ireland discusses her work, which focuses on improving the three-dimensional (3D) computer modeling and simulation of objects.
"I try to make it easier for computers to solve simulation problems as efficiently and accurately as possible," Moore says.
She notes a lot of the research's practical applications involve deconstructing the task at hand. "My work looks at preserving the smooth geometry of the original design and using as much knowledge of the geometry and material behavior as possible to improve accuracy and reduce the workload in performing simulations," Moore says.
She notes improved simulation algorithms enhance the design process in turn, "and we can have designs that are safer, more efficient, and less expensive to produce."
Moore believes modeling and simulation is a particularly exciting field "with the increased computational resources in today's processors and recent trends in things like 3D printing."
