By using Simulink® and SimMechanics, Instron Structural Testing (www.instron.com) has achieved simulation that was five times faster than previous ones when designing a multi-axis test fixture that can apply dynamic loads to a race car. The company used Simulink to develop the controller and SimMechanics to develop the mechanical part of the test fixture, as well as other mechanics, such as 15 moving parts for each wheel.
University of Southampton researchers have come up with a way to 3D print transparent optical fibers like those used in fiber-optic telecommunications cables, potentially boosting frequency and reducing loss.
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.
