About SIMCenter

The Simulation Innovation and Modeling Center is an interdisciplinary research center for the virtual simulation and modeling of product performance and manufacturing processes in the College of Engineering.  The Simulation Innovation and Modeling Center, or SIMCenter, researches and applies computer-aided engineering techniques to the design and manufacturing of advanced product and production concepts.  Located in Smith Laboratory, the SIMCenter combines expertise from several College of Engineering departments, including mechanical, aerospace, electrical, industrial, materials science, computer science, and Integrated Systems and partnership with Ohio Supercomputer Center.

The Simulation Innovation and Modeling Center (SIMCenter) is one of three industry-facing Centers in the Ohio State University College of Engineering tackling the most challenging problems in land transportation. SIMCenter, along with the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) and the Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME), span the range of activities need to take vehicles through the entire product lifecycle. SIMCenter’s focus is on the application computer aided-engineering tools, and where needed, the development of new computer-aided engineering tools. Effective use of these tools is absolutely vital to the regional, state, and national economies in order to produce best-in-class products at competitive costs.

Simply put, SIMCenter's mission is to advance the state of computer-aided engineering in the transportation industry.
