Knovel Math is a Web-enabled library that provides fully documented Mathcad worksheets for
engineering calculations, reducing the time it takes to solve and document
complex math problems. Using Knovel Math, Mathcad users can simply
find the worksheet they need using powerful search tools, download it into
Mathcad and customize it with specific input values for problem solving. Knovel Mathincludes more than 4000 worksheets supporting the
needs of mechanical, civil and structural engineers with further worksheets to
be added in 2010. Using Knovel Math, engineers can quickly access complete and fully
documented worksheets and perform their calculations using either US customary or
metric units. This significantly improves productivity and the audit-ability of
calculations. It ensures consistency, facilitates legacy knowledge transfer and
promotes the adoption of best practices. Knovel Math is web-enabled allowing
engineers to access Mathcad worksheets at any time. Users can search for worksheets using
keywords (eg. beam flexure) or browse through the Mathcad- enabled titles. In addition to the Mathcad worksheets, users
have access to the latest editions of reference titles from which they have
been developed. Worksheets are fully expanded from their original published
form (including all intermediate steps) and are fully editable. Worksheets are available in both U.S. customary
and metric units.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
