This talk introduces a Python module I have created called
open-source package that takes advantage of Python’s flexible dynamic
nature and its introspection tools to provide an object-orientated
environment for automating engineering design and computational studies.
Traditionally engineering design methodologies have been very slow,
manual and iterative, however recent developments in computer
technologies are driving a growing trend towards automation. The author
has a background in the subsea oil & gas industry, and has applied
pflacs to automating the design of subsea pipelines. Although its
origins and primary objectives are in engineering design,
pflacs can be
used to manage and automate parameter study type analyses in any domain
that has a significant computational component.
The video of my talk at PyCon Ireland 2019 can be viewed on YouTube at this link.
The presentation slides can be viewed at this link. The slides are in Reveal.js format, generated from a Jupyter notebook. Reveal lays out the slides on a 2-dimensional grid (press
o to see an overview). Press
n to move to the next slide, and press
p to go back. Alternatively, you can use the arrow control at the bottom-right, go down
