This website tells a story about two isolated takes on the same subject: mechanical engineering simulation. These two takes either cannot or will not acknowledge each other. I act in the belief that one day they will embrace. My favorite metaphor is that of Ford Model T. After years of denial and mistakes, Ford and the other automakers ended up acknowledging that they were in the same business. See here for another approach to the same scene description.

As a newcomer, I am in a position to build bridges and promote this development instead of fighting it. I believe that many others will eventually see a benefit in doing the same. However, I do not expect you to eat the elephant in one piece. Therefore, I intend to write a number of articles and publish them on this page.
