Want to meet up with engineering kin from around the globe? The International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community is hosting its 2005 World Congress on the island of Malta, May 17-20. NAFEMS is the only group dedicated to the international use of engineering technology. Abstracts are now being called for under five main topics: practical applications of simulation, analysis as an engineering tool, technology, education and training, and numerical methods. To submit an abstract or find out more information about the conference visit http://nafems.org/congress.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
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.
