Curriculum vitae

Dr. Binde was born in 1970 and studied mechanical engineering at the Universität Darmstadt, Germany, where he received his diploma in 1997. Towards the end of his studies, he began working as a freelancer consultant in CAD/CAE. He received the Dr.-Ing. degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Universität Darmstadt in 2004. 
In 2005 he founded Dr. Binde Ingenieure, Design & Engineering GmbH, a company that specializes in CAE consulting all around the Siemens NX System. The company grew steadily and now employs engineers who are all experts for product simulation. The fields of expertise are Structural Mechanics, Rigid Body Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Electrodynamics and the integration of all this in PLM. 2009 he established a code for electromagnetic analysis integrated in the NX System. For this he performed government-funded research projects together with the Universität Darmstadt and University of Liège, Belgium.
From 2008 to 2012, he taught Numerical Structural Analysis and Multi-Body Dynamics at the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences. Since 2011 he leads the German CAE Special Interest Group in the PLM Connection, a user group which meets twice a year on the topic of simulation.
