Simpleware Ltd is pleased to announce our latest competition to identify
interesting applications using 3D image based computational models.

Simpleware Ltd provides innovative software and services for the
conversion of any 3D dataset (e.g. MRI, CT, Micro-CT, stack of images.)
into finite element and rapid prototyped models. The approach taken is
unique and proprietary and generates models of unparalleled fidelity
(http://www.simpleware.com ).

In order to showcase the benefits of our technology, the winner will
receive free conversion of an interesting/novel/fun 3D dataset into
finite element or CFD models. This will include all image
processing/segmentation work required.

Please note that models/meshes generated can include:
* Multiple parts (e.g. hip, stem, cup, cement ...)
* Contact surfaces defined at part interfaces
* Material properties of parts based on signal strength (e.g.
Hounsfield numbers)

Models exported are directly importable into ABAQUS, ANSYS, I-DEAS,
LS-Dyna3D, MSC.PATRAN/NASTRAN, and FLUENT.
