Model-Based Design for Automation
Features 12/9/2010 Post a comment For OEMs, modularity of systems is not yet a widely deployed factor in the product development cycle. To make systems reuse a part of the design strategy, self-documenting simulation models can help sustain inter-departmental know-how and reduce time to market.
Sample, Convert Simultaneously
Features 12/7/2010 Post a comment When you must digitize signals simultaneously, remember the difference between simultaneous sampling and simultaneous conversion. Manufacturers don't always make it clear.
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.
