No Limits to Mechatronics
Features 2/25/2008 Post a comment Many believe that the term "Mechatronics" is only a fancy way of saying "Electromechanical", according to Kevin Craig, professor of mechanical engineering at Marquette University, they are very wrong.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
