Webinar Series: Challenges of the Nuclear Sector

In a global context of energy transition towards a low-carbon society, each stakeholder faces a arduous challenge to achieve innovation, performance and safety and all the while complying with governmental standards in to provide the best time to market.

With 45 years experience in Virtual Prototyping, ESI Group provides qualified digital solutions and high-added-value expertise to help its customers address these strategic challenges.

Join the Energy webinar series to discuss how the nuclear industry is transforming and get an exclusive view at how the engineering simulation is essential to overcome the challenges faced by this industry.
Webinar n°1 – Optimal Manufacturing Process Qualification

Presented by Gilles Croisonnier – Innovation & Discovery Machining Manager at ESI Group

Recent digitalization developments and the ever-increasing global competitiveness have made the utilization of virtual simulation tools and the collaboration between the physical world and the virtual work a key enabler for quality assurance as well as productivity to move towards the Factory 4.0.

In addition to the ESI existing Solutions Qualified for Welding & Heat Treatment & Casting, ESI is now expanding its expertise to the Machining Process domain. This will be illustrated through real industrial applications, showing new capabilities of predicting Vibrations, Distortions and Surface Integrity due to Milling/Turning/Boring Operations  which is a main challenge for the Energy Industry Sector.
Webinar n°2 – Efficient design review, certification and safety support

Presented by Sandrine Dischert – Domain Leader Energy at ESI Group
& Pascale Goussard – Technical Referent for Nuclear Energy at ESI France

Initially developed by Framatome to justify the maintenance of nuclear islands, ESI solutions for the energy sector have been continuously enriched over the past 20 years. Today, these solutions allow component designs to be pre-qualified in accordance with nuclear industry regulations, such as ASME, RCC-M, etc. from the design stage, through to on-going operations until dismantling. As part of this webinar, effective solutions will be presented to meet the challenges of standard regulatory analysis and justification of default.

  • Pre-qualify component designs in accordance with nuclear industry rules, such as ASME.
  • Ensure excellence thoughout the plant’s lifecycle: from the design stage, to the in-operation maintenance until dismantling
  • Meet the challenges of standard regulatory analysis and the justification of fault holding

Webinar n°3 – Virtual Reality : a Solution for Building, Maintenance or plant Dismantling

Presented by Nicolas Fromont – Presales Virtual Reality at ESI France In collaboration with Framatome

With the development of Industry 4.0, Virtual Reality has become essential in order to address decision making challenges. It enables engineers to evaluate complex situations while improving design, enhancing engineering processes productivity and integrating human-centric interactions. Virtual Reality allows engineers and interdisciplinary teams to explore, validate and solve complex integration, assembly and service scenarios at the intersection of product function and human interactions.

As a major player in innovation, ESI offers a functional, human-centric virtual reality solution: ESI IC.IDO. Based on advanced VR technology, IC.IDO provides a true virtual prototype, based on real-time physics, simulating interaction with the real world and allowing unlimited testing.

Used by Framatome, this industrial solution will be presented and illustrated during this webinar. Framatome will present the use of IC.IDO through a use case specific to the nuclear sector.
