  Hi Richard,

              One suggestion is fewer PR puff pieces where one lets salepeople tell all kinds of 'facts' that have little to do with reality and just doing better performance through advertising, rather than actual improvements.

                Demand more numbers, specs and decent comparisions and more process details as we are here to learn and need accurate data or just wasting time.

                 More detail the the chemical fields like syn fuels, changing H, C into HC's cosr effectively.

                 And most important is cost details as something is great at 1 price and not worth using at another.

                 Also compare likely competition.  The were recycled plastic CF combo touted here compared it's propduct to virgin CF when it's natural competitor is FG filled plastic at far lower cost and more strength is an example of bad data we don't need.

@Naperlou: Thanks for the reminder about simulation's importance, but don't you worry. It is right up there on our coverage plan. As you can see by all the Indy car coverage and much of the military projects DN has been covering as of late, simulation is playing a much greater role in product development than ever before and the only indications are that it will grow in usage and importance, not shrink.

Richard, first, welcome.  Design News has a lot of good content.  One are that is important to many design shops is Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) or simulation tools.  This is very much in line with the idea behind 3D printing.  The ability to anaylze a part before producing it is a key to improved design effieiecny.  There are many tools out there and many interesting applications of them.  That might be a good extension to the coverage in Design News as these tools are used extensively with CAD tools.

According to a study by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, one of the factors in the collapse of the original World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001, was the reduction in the yield strength of the steel reinforcement as a result of the high temperatures of the fire and the loss of thermal insulation.

Robots are getting more agile and automation systems are becoming more complex. Yet the most impressive development in robotics and automation is increased intelligence. Machines in automation are increasingly able to analyze huge amounts of data. They are often able to see, speak, even imitate patterns of human thinking. Researchers at European Automation call this deep learning.
