EAST SETAUKET, N.Y., May 18, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The ceremonial October 2020 opening of the Ansys Hall at Carnegie Mellon University – College of Engineering in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania unveiled an innovative educational facility that combines classroom and factory. Penetron Specialty Products provided a flooring solution that included a flooring underlayment (LEVELINE 15) and a sealer (PENESEAL FH).
Ansys, an American simulation software company, and Carnegie Mellon University have cooperated on a wholly new teaching facility where students, faculty, and collaborators innovate and interact with cutting-edge simulation and fabrication tools. The range of potential applications is diverse, ranging from autonomous vehicles to additive manufacturing, biomedical devices, sustainability of physical products, and more.
“Ansys simulation software gives engineers and students the ability to explore and predict how products will work — or won’t work — in real world applications,” explains Bob Baumeister, PSP Product Specialist. “Students can now rapidly transform their ideas from digital concepts to physical prototypes in the same facility.”
