Algor's Release 12 automatically compares your input against allowable low- or high-value limits as you enter the data. This live data-checking feature alerts the user if a value is unreasonable and prevents errors during subsequent finite element analysis. The new release also focuses on ease-of-use with such features as an improved FEA data entry interface, pull-down lists that eliminate possible typing errors, and the need to reference separate documentation. In addition, the effects of liquids can be simulated using "hydrodynamic finite elements" in a Mechanical Event Simulation. Assemblies having several components, such as an automobile front-suspension assembly, are importable as a single model, and engineers can perform a mechanical event simulation of a model with several components at the same time.

Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
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.
