While the number of jobs for mechanical engineers is expected to grow more slowly than the average of all jobs through 2012, a February 2004 Bureau of Labor Stastics survey predicts the number of jobs available to mechanical engineers in manufacturing industries is expected to increase more rapidly than other occupations, due to an increased demand for machinery. The fields of biotechnology, materials science, and nanotechnology will also have more jobs to offer to mechanical engineers.

A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
