Understanding Aluminum Alloys
Features 8/25/2010 1 comment From its low energy use to its suitability for anodizing, aluminum can be a good choice for designers seeking high thermal and electrical conductivity. Knowing which aluminum alloy series to use is critical for complex extrusions.
Design Tools Make Their Way to the Cloud
Features 8/23/2010 Post a comment While the cloud has not widely been floated as a fit for CAD and CAE applications, vendors are now showing early prototypes that could change the way engineers collaborate and tap into massive amounts of compute power.
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.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
