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 engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
