Simulation Based Engineering Science (SBES) is a new discipline of engineering and applied science in which modern computational methods and devices and collateral technologies can be combined to resolve fundamental issues far outside the scope of traditional scientific and engineering methods; like prototyping. SBES in an interdisciplinary field, arising from the intersection of more mature disciplines, all enriched by the host of developing modeling technologies in such areas as imaging, sensors, and visualization: These mature disciplines include:[1]

  • Computational and applied mathematics
  • Engineering science
  • Systems engineering
  • Materials science
  • Computer science
  • Distributed and grid computing
  • Physical Science
  • Social Sciences

As defined by the National Science Foundation, “Simulation-Based Engineering Science (SBES) is defined as the discipline that provides the scientific and mathematical basis for the simulation of engineered systems. Such systems range from microelectronic devices to automobiles, aircraft, and even the infrastructures of oilfields and cities. In a word, SBES fuses the knowledge and techniques of the traditional engineering fields—electrical, mechanical, civil, chemical, aerospace, nuclear, biomedical, and materials science—with the knowledge and techniques of fields like computer science, mathematics, and the physical and social sciences. As a result engineers are better able to predict and optimize systems affecting almost all aspects of our lives and work, including our environment, our security and safety, and the products we use and export”.
