ESI Group welcomes a major international expert

Who? ESI Group is a leading innovator in Virtual Prototyping software and services for manufacturing industries. Specialist in material physics, ESI has developed a unique proficiency in helping industrial manufacturers replace physical prototypes by virtual prototypes, allowing them to virtually manufacture, assemble, test and pre-certify their future products. 

What? ESI is proud to announce that Dr. Ravi Raveendra is joining ESI’s scientific team of world class experts to tackle critical challenges related to material physics, manufacturing and simulation. He will contribute to ESI’s Research & Development (R&D) strategy worldwide.

Dr. Ravi Raveendra is ESI Group’s new Scientific Director for North America and a member of the group’s Scientific Committee. With a PhD in Computational Engineering Mechanics from the State University of New York, USA, Dr Raveendra has worked on many large-scale projects with government agencies and industrial clients in vibro-acoustics, noise control materials, fracture mechanics, composite materials, probabilistic structural analysis methods, cathodic protection and inverse problems among others. He is author and co-author of more than 100 technical publications. 

ESI’s Scientific Committee is headed by Professor Francisco Chinesta, world-renowned scientist, Professor of computational physics at the Ecole Centrale of Nantes (France), and researcher at the High Performance Computing Institute in France. He is fellow of the “Institut Universitaire de France” (French University Institute), and of the Spanish Royal Academy of Engineering. Prof. Chinesta has received many scientific awards in various fields (bio-engineering, material forming processes, rheology and computational mechanics). He is also the author of 250 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, president of the French association of computational mechanics (CSMA), and director of the CNRS research group on model order reduction techniques for engineering sciences. He is editor in chief and associate editor of many scientific journals. Prof. Chinesta and Ass. Prof. Emmanuelle Abisset are the scientific leaders of the ESI-Centrale Nantes chair, chair that involves more than 20 researchers at Centrale Nantes and an international network of large spectra.

Meet Dr Raveendra  at Noise Con 2017 (taking place simultaneously with the SAE 2017 Noise and Vibration Conference from June 12 - 15 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA), where he will be presenting a paper entitled “Comparison of Methods for High Frequency Acoustic Radiation Analysis“, written by S.T. Raveendra, Z. Zhang, A. Chodankar.

Visitors at Noise Con 2017 are also invited to visit ESI on booth #35 to see live demos and learn more about minimum sound requirements for hybrid and electric vehicles, pass-by noise, aero-vibro-acoustics and trim modeling & optimization.
