Industrial Wheel Design Optimization
Features 9/30/2010 Post a comment As part of an industrial system design, high performance polyurethane wheels can be an attractive alternative material compared to rubber (solid or pneumatic), nylon or other polyurethanes to improve wheel performance and increase the safety and reliability of an application.
Patent Basics for Design Engineers
Features 9/29/2010 Post a comment As a design engineer, you work on the cutting edge of new technologies and new products. It is therefore important to be knowledgeable about not just patents, but other forms of intellectual property as well, such a trademarks, logos and brands.
Designing with Multi-axis Load Cell Sensors
Features 9/10/2010 Post a comment Custom projects often require customized sensors based on the environment in which they will be used. Thorough understanding of a project's mechanical, electrical and instrumentation requirements are key to making the right sensor choice.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
