14th International Symposium on Fusion Nuclear Technology (ISFNT-14) Budapest

Since the 1960’s computer-aided design (CAD) has been at the forefront of engineering. Originally and literally quite a broad term, “CAD” appears to have narrowed in definition, and is nowadays usually used to refer to three-dimensional (3-D) geometric models. Such 3-D CAD models are the currency of modern engineering, enabling a wide variety…

14th International Symposium on Fusion Nuclear Technology (ISFNT-14) Budapest,Hungary, 22-27 September 2019

The creation of 3-D CAD models is one of the key steps in the fusion reactor design cycle, and is very much a recurring process. A common division of labour sees engineers, draughtspeople, and analysts iterate ideas, requirements and constraints, 3-D CAD model(s), and analyses, respectively, to iteratively converge upon a working design. Whilst thi…
