High-Performance Modeling & Simulation for Aerospace & Defense Design
Date / Time: Monday, July 30, 2012, 2:00 p.m. New York
Overview: For most design engineers, time is just as much of a barrier to new product design as materials, geometry and physics are. This is particularly true within the aerospace and defense design industries. And even with the benefits of contemporary 3D modeling and simulation at hand, time can still get added to the equation which can frustrate design teams on both ends of the cycle. Streamlining the overall design process without sacrificing the quality and reliability of data is the age-old challenge many high-end simulation providers have been addressing for years, and we’ll see just how far some of the more cutting-edge providers have come and where things are heading when Design News Contributing Editor Tim Votapka hosts a July 20 Design News radio show featuring Paul Goossens, VP of Applications Engineering at Maplesoft and Blake Courter, Co-Founder of SpaceClaim.

New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
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.
