As an FEA software user, you may need material properties not found in your software's default material library. You can now effortlessly import material properties from a growing collection of more than 55,000 material data sheets by accessing MatWeb's Premium Services library. With just a few clicks, the data can be transferred — fast and accurately. For example, if you need properties for a certain type of rubber and can't find them, you can import the data from MatWeb. The appropriate property values, as well as units, are automatically exported into an XML file, which can then be opened in the ALGOR FEA program.
The accompanying text explains how to do this in three easy steps. Click here to download the PDF file containing the screen shots associated with the steps below.
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.
