Karbon to Present Virtual Automotive Design Techniques During Keynote at CEIViz '08 Conference

APEX, N.C.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—August 7, 2008— Kenneth Karbon, performance engineer at General Motors Vehicle Engineering, will be the keynote speaker at the second biennial CEIViz 08 conference. CEIViz 08 is the international conference for high-performance visualization. The conference will be held at the Radisson Lord Plaza Hotel in Baltimore, MD, September 23-25, 2008.

Karbons presentation will focus on simulation and visualization in automotive design. Automotive design and engineering has a rich history of hardware testing and development. Major automakers have an extensive network of styling studios, proving grounds, test labs, and prototype shops. These hands-on methods will always be necessary in some form for automotive designers to deliver a final product that meets the expectations of customers who are equally passionate about the vehicles they drive.

"Automotive engineering performance is governed by numbers like miles per gallon, drag coefficient, and stopping distance, says Karbon. However, to connect with our partners in styling and design, we need to bring those numbers to life with effective visual communication."

Globalization of the auto market and compressed product cycles pushed the limits of physical testing capability and brought computer methods to the mainstream. Simulations are well established in the vehicle development process, supplementing experiments or eliminating them altogether in order to maximize engineering throughput. Karbons presentation will summarize General Motorss use of virtual tools in styling, CAD, CAE, and collaboration, including visualization successes with EnSight.
