Accupack/VE event simulation software features an enhanced EASY menu that enables users to automatically set the control parameters for an event simulation without having to know the underlying mathematics. Accupack/VE combines kinematics, rigid/flexible body motion, and nonlinear stress analysis in one program. A click on the EASY menu takes the user to a list of the kinds of events to be simulated, including linear static solution and dynamic response and large or small strain static/steady-state solution.
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
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.
