As BIM continues to be used for design and deliver of projects throughout the world, designers and engineers are being afforded the opportunity to understand the ways in which their projects will behave once constructed and occupied. By leveraging the simulation and analysis capabilities that Autodesk is developing and delivering to the market, today's BIM adopters have greater insights into the ways that the structures, systems, and occupants behave when constructed and occupied. Join Autodesk's Russell Speight, Director of Simulation Technology, as he walks you through the types of capabilities you can start to use when designing your next project.
After graduating with a Ph.D. in 1993 from University of Bradford, UK, Russell continued for two years lecturing and researching CAM. Since 1995, he worked in Moldflow Research and Development, responsible for manufacturing product management. Today, Russell is responsible for Simulation Technology Development, Moldflow, Structural Analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), technology innovation, product validation and material. He is the Kilsyth Office R&D site leader, Director of Autodesk Australia Pty Ltd, working closely with facilities, human resources and sales, to ensure Autodesk Australia is a great place to work. Russell enjoys running (now slowly), both competing and organizing track and field and cross country events for all age groups
