Anyone who follows NASCAR knows that it's gone high-tech. Just how high-tech? In this Design News podcast, Dr. Eric Warren, the technical director for Evernham Motor Sports and a PhD aerospace engineer, will talk about the ways that CNC machining, robotics, and linear drive technology are giving NASCAR teams an edge on race day. Listen here.
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.
