How are design engineers benefiting from ever-increasing advances on the hardware side? More sophisticated and accessible simulation and analysis is one area where new chip platforms are delivering results.
The result has been a significant step forward in realistic simulations using a minimum of 10 million elements for crash simulation, company officials said. ESI Group is reporting up to a 250% performance boost in data processing from Visual Environment Version 2.5 to Version 3.0 optimized on the latest Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series, and more than 4 GB allocated in memory using Windows XP 64-bit on the latest multi-core Intel Xeon processor.
ESI Group officials say the partnership results will enable customers to design a single crash model that covers the crash and safety simulation domain as a while.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
