Users of PTC’s Pro/ENGINEER CAD tool looking for advanced thermal analysis and simulation capabilities will have a broader array of options thanks to a partnership between PTC and Blue Ridge Numerics.
Following PTC’ recent announcement of its latest CAD release, Wildfire 4.0, Blue Ridge Numerics announced a version of its CFdesign tool specifically tuned for the upgrade. This new edition of CFdesign for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0, which provides a parametric CAD-driven flow and thermal analysis environment, also supports CoCreate OneSpace 3D, a CAD tool acquired by PTC last year.
Blue Ridge Numerics says it jumped on supporting Wildfire 4.0 because of the widespread adoption of CFdesign within the Pro/ENGINEER installed base. The software allows engineers to conduct trade-off studies and thermal analysis upfront in the decision-making process, well before detailed CAD models are created and any physical testing is employed.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
