Hangar du Premier-film, Lyon : On March 19, 1895, Louis Lumière placed his camera in front of the hangar, in front of the factory's large gate, turned the crank and filmed the workers leaving the workshops. “Sortie d’usine ” thus becomes the first Lumière film, and the Hangar the first set in the history of cinema. The Hangar is thus a fundamental vestige of cinema's memory. Left derelict when the Lumière factories were demolished in the early 1970s, the Hangar was almost razed to the ground to make way for a housing project in the early 1980s. But thanks to enthusiasts determined to preserve the legacy of the Lumière brothers, it was saved from destruction. Today, the set of the first film has been saved and houses a cinema. Where images were developed using processes invented by Louis, they are now projected. The men and women who worked in the factory have given way to cinema-goers, in the place where it was invented.

During this day, various technical presentations are given by engineers from the industrial world. Like you, the presenters work on Ansys to develop new products. What were the challenges at the start of the project, what method was used to solve the problems, and what key development steps were taken to achieve innovation?

Whether in structural dynamics, fluid dynamics, particle dynamics... every day, products are perfected thanks to digital simulation. From mobility to energy, from agriculture to process engineering... engineers who are ambassadors for their sector of activity talk about their innovative work.

It's a day of curiosity-raising discoveries. CADFEM engineers from each physics cluster are also on hand to demonstrate the possibilities offered by Ansys software. It's an opportunity to exchange ideas on the challenges facing each of us, in a convivial environment.
