Virtual Reality : a Solution for Building, Maintenance or plant Dismantling

nuclear cap VR 0

Virtual Reality has become essential in order to address decision making challenges. It 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.

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

Framatome, leader of the nuclear sector and user of ESI IC.IDO, presents in this video the use of this industrial solution through a use case specific to the nuclear sector.

Efficient design review, certification and safety support

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.

With this replay, learn more about effective solutions to meet the challenges of standard regulatory analysis and justification of default.

Transformation towards the Industry 4.0 with Hybrid Twin and model reduction

HybridTwin ESI nuclear

ESI Group has developed a unique know-how in Virtual Prototyping which addresses the operational performance of the product throughout its life cycle.

The creation of a Hybrid Twin coupling a simulated physics-based model with a specific model built from data received in real time, makes it possible to create and pre-certify intelligent products, to predict their performance and to anticipate their maintenance needs in the transformation towards the factory of the future.
