SolidWorks announced that they can now import information from a collection of 47,000 material data sheets through a new partnership with online information provider MatWeb. MatWeb has built a customized engine that exports data in SolidWorks/COSMOS format from the archive into the SolidWorks/COSMOS interface, providing engineers with more than 900,000 data points on the physical, mechanical, electrical, thermal, optical, and processing properties of materials. This allows engineers to accurately predict a materials' behavior in a design under real-world conditions without much effort. COSMOS users can read MatWeb archive material data sheets for free, and a small subscription fee is charged for downloading info onto computers. For more info, visit www.matweb.com.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
