Rapid Prototype Trends
3D solid model software has come a long way. It makes complex finite element analysis an integrated feature so that new designs can be explored in hours, rather than days or weeks of building prototype parts and making changes. New product development costs have been falling consistently since the advent of this technology. The logical […]
The Tools, They are a Changing’
(regarding the title, just think Bob Dylan’s “The Times They are a Changin”) Just as Computer Aided Design, CAD, has revolutionized the design process, it is growing in capability and impacting many other arenas of engineering. The first major extensions to CAD were integration of Finite Element Analysis, the ability to analyze loads on the […]
Does More Simulation Mean Companies Profit More From Its Use?
BOSTON, MA — Increasing product complexity combined with the ever pressing market pressures to develop these products faster and cheaper requires new ways of exploring product performance. A recent report by Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), “Engineering Evolved: Getting Mechatronics Performance Right the First Time,” finds that an increasing number of companies are […]
Tradeoffs and Triangles
The activity of optimization involves trade off analysis. The goal is to improve performance or cost effectiveness, or both if possible. Nowadays, we have some really sophisticated software tools that allow us to simulate the behavior of complex systems. Computational fluid dynamics, magnetic field simulations, thermal imaging, finite element analysis are a few of the […]
Mechatronic Tidal Simulation Assists Scientists
Scientists from London’s Imperial College are using the new RT3 version of the Reliance Cool Muscle NEMA 23 integrated servo system to reproduce the sub-surface pressure changes created by lunar tides in laboratory research experiments directed at improving oil recovery. The unique abilities of the RT3 version along with the support provided by Reliance allow […]
