Introducing Hayley Tatam, Simulation Engineer at CodePS. Originally from Australia, she adds an international dimension to our team. With 11 years expertise in FEM and Ansys, she's well-prepared for our high-tech technical challenges. She appreciates our team's collaborative atmosphere and looks forward to contributing. In her downtime, she enjoys running, swimming, and painting. “I often find that if I've been struggling with a problem the answer will pop into my head while I am immersed in one of my hobbies.” Welcome to the team, Hayley.
Congrats to our engineers for achieving their PSE certificate from NAFEMS! A worldwide recognition for competences required in the field of simulation. A wide variety of subjects is covered such as structural mechanics, composites, fatigue and non-linear effects.
What our engineers thought of PSE? “My exam was actually an interesting discussion regarding the challenges in my daily work. Nice addition to my professional career, it confirms my ability to deliver qualitative results.”
New to our team; Mathieu Oude Vrielink - simulation engineer for high-tech systems. “I get really energized from simulation models, because they allow us to unravel critical engineering insights that cannot be obtained otherwise.” From prior experience he learned that these insights are crucial during development, ranging from life-saving medical equipment to nuclear fusion reactors. At CodePS, he’ll be right at home because of the shared passion for analysis and simulations. In his free time he likes to go for a run, or to goof around on his piano.

Nisarga Reddy joins the team
“The best aspect of simulations is the ability to predict the behavior of a product before physical experiments.” That is why Nisarga Reddy chose this field of work. She has prior experience in simulation in the automotive industry and in plastics. Solving problems and celebrating small wins keep her motivated. She has a broad look at engineering and wants to understand the complete context of a problem, not only the engineering part of it, also economic aspects and the impact it has for the end-user have her interest. She spends her free time learning Dutch and gardening.
celebrating team spirit
We had an exciting day as we welcomed our colleagues from India to our office. The energy was good while we gathered for lunch and went for a fascinating tour through the Philips Museum, where we delved into the history of Eindhoven city. And we tested our teamwork with an escape room challenge! The day concluded with a nice dinner and engaging conversations.
At Code PS, we believe that a strong team spirit and supportive work environment drives innovation. Events like these remind us of the talent and dedication within our team, transcending borders and embracing diversity.
This is Jerôme, the most recent addition to the team who started working on finite element simulations for high tech systems. "Working on a large machine model with several different bodies, enforces you to stay focused on every small model component. This is a challenge with a lot of puzzle-pieces, but is rewarding whenever results are starting to make sense. These simulation challenges, together with the flat company organization at CodePS, makes for a refreshing working environment." Besides simulations, Jerôme spends his spare time on DIY projects and is occasionally defying mountains on his bike.
engineering automation saves you time
Did you know that a large portion of a CAE Engineer's time is spent on repetitive and tedious tasks such as reporting and pre-processing? And these tasks contribute very little to one's knowledge.
With the Moldflow Toolbox, you can automate your workflow, including reporting and pre-processing. This helps you to save time and energy, and it increases the value of your work. By reducing non-value-adding time to a minimum, Moldflow Toolbox aims to improve the efficiency and quality of the project. Check out our Moldflow Toolbox page here: www.code-ps.com/toolbox
meet our intern Lauren
When Lauren saw our internship vacancy she was immediately interested. A clear assignment with a problem she liked to tackle with her design and prototyping skills.
Lauren is a third year Industrial Product Design student Fontys Venlo University of Applied Sciences. Together with her supervisor Cyril Smals she is working on a new infant carrier system. This involves patent research, modeling in SolidWorks and Fusion and 3D printing.
We like to have Lauren on our team, she is independent, not afraid of complex problems and learned quickly about CRS regulations and what it means to design within those boundaries.

getting inspired by students
Today we visited IPO Hogeschool Rotterdam. Where 10 students presented their concepts on how to entertain children in a car, so their parents can focus on traffic and bring them home safely. "I saw some wonderful concepts, where the imagination of children is boosted or where they playfully learn something. It was very nice to see their hands-on approach and mock-ups, just like we like at CodePS."
lightweight multi-material gearbox housing
A housing form aluminum overmolded with fiber reinforced plastic from Polyscope Polymers BV. With integrative simulations we ensured the best performance of both materials (with their individual thermal and mechanical properties).
We performed an injection molding simulation to identify filling or warpage risks. Afterwards we transferred the fiber orientations to a mechanical simulation analyzing the mechanical behavior of the part in a high level of detail, considering also local effects. This approach resulted in 30% less weight, 30% less emissions and a cost-effective solution.
