| Virtual Engineering (VE) is a multidisciplinary field in Computeraided Engineering (CAE) technologies involving interaction of diverse computer-based engineering tools such as computer-aided design (CAD) in geometric modelling, finite element methods (FEM) in analysis and other mechanical and process simulation systems. Within a products lifecycle, design is the cornerstone and drives the aspiration of simulation-based engineering aimed to create smooth communication among the diverse CAE tools. This demands a collaborative engineering work where VE and the interface standards play a key role.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
