CHICAGO, Dec. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ciespace Corporation, a privately-held engineering software company, announced today that Dr. Kenji Shimada, Founder and Chief Science Officer, was named the first recipient of the IMR Fellow Award at the 2011 International Meshing Roundtable (IMR) held in Paris, France on October 23 - 25. The IMR Fellow Award was created this year, IMR's 20th anniversary, to recognize an individual with a distinguished record of research accomplishments in the field of Mesh Generation and exceptional service to the meshing community. 

"It is an honor to receive this award.  Although the theory of meshing has been studied over the past four decades by mathematicians, computer scientists, and engineers, meshing is still the most labor-intensive and time-consuming task in many computer-aided engineering processes.  Through the commercialization efforts of Ciespace Corporation, I believe that our novel physically-based mesh generation method, BubbleMesh, will significantly reduce user time and improve solution accuracy,"  said Dr. Shimada.

Over the past 20 years, Dr. Shimada's research group has developed BubbleMeshfor finite element mesh generation. BubbleMesh has been licensed by more than 80 companies in a wide variety of manufacturing industries.

"Dr. Shimada has devoted a significant part of his career to the continued research and advancement of mesh generation techniques. His innovative BubbleMesh technology takes a huge leap forward in automating the manual labor-intensive process of mesh generation. We are pleased to see Dr. Shimada recognized by the IMR for his unique contributions to the field," remarked Kevin Kerns,  CEO of Ciespace Corporation.

About Ciespace Corporation

Ciespace develops and markets advanced 3D digital modeling and analysis solutions for the aerospace, automotive, industrial, and electronics markets. The company, founded by Dr. Kenji Shimada, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, is based on the patented BubbleMesh technology, a product of more than 18 years of advanced research in the field of 3D digital modeling. BubbleMesh enables the automated generation of high quality meshes for non-linear, multi-physics, and large-scale engineering analysis, which until now have been developed using costly manual labor. This automation dramatically increases the speed and quality of the engineering design process, for applications ranging from automobile crash simulation to complex fluid dynamic (CFD) and electromagnetic (EM) analysis.
