Excellent post Jurg--very informative.  We have associated with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga the SIM Center.  This group of very talented individuals performs CFD investigations as needed by clients obviously wishing answers to problems with components and assemblies. It's a fascinating technology that has allowed the transformation of product development.  If applied properly, the days of waiting on and on for that first prototype are over.  There is also great predictability possible with the software packages.  Modifications and design changes are possible before the first prototype is even made.  Again--great post.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
