Beth, this is where CAE codes make a big difference. It is possible to explore a large part of the design space in the computer. This gives the design team the ability find optimal, or near optimal, parameters for their rel-world testing.
Another interesting aspect is the cloud for CFD. These are highly parallel simulations that seem more amenable to massive parallel solutions. It is also interesting to see that this is a public cloud solution.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
