Looking to apply more structure to engineering simulation? ANSYS Inc. has a new product it claims can help do just that.
The new ANSYS Engineering Knowledge Manager (EKM) is positioned as a solution for bring data management and process management to simulation efforts. Sort of like a Product Data Management (PDM) tool, but tuned specifically to the requirements of simulation analysis.
According to officials, ANSYS EKM offers collaboration and communications functions, ensuring engineers transfer the right simulation information to the right people when it’s needed. The software has support for archiving and managing simulation data, historic tracking of files, advanced search and retrieval functions, report generation, simulation comparison tools along with workflow automation, collaboration capabilities and the ability to capture and deploy best practices.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
