LM Glasfiber has celebrated the opening of the company's new R&D Centre in Bangalore, India.
The new R&D Centre marks the start of a new global innovation and technology push to expand LM Glasfiber's R&D capacity and capabilities and reinforce a commitment to support a growing number of customers worldwide. The site is the third node in a growing R&D network that already has existing R&D Centres in Denmark and the Netherlands. The R&D Centre, which will employ more than 40 engineers by the end of the year, will specialise within the fields of Finite Element Method (FEM) - used for complex structural blade design analysis - Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) - used to perform the millions of calculations needed to simulate the complex airflows around rotor blades and Computer-aided Design (CAD) for product development.
