The Benefits of Model-Based Engineering - An Aerospace Perspective

The defense industry is focused on improving affordability. In aerospace, rising fuel costs and increasing competition for market share are driving the demand for on-board systems that deliver improved performance while using less energy. The industry is therefore looking at implementing improved product development processes. Among these is the more widespread use of a model based engineering approach.

3D Printing for Machine Design

Metals and plastics have long been used for machine parts. Their durability, strength, and reliability in machines that operate continuously for millions of cycles make them the standard in automated machinery. However, for these same reasons, the use of 3D printed parts has been questioned and not widely adopted by manufacturers. This view should be reconsidered as 3D printed components offer a lower cost means to produce prototype components and end use components for machinery.

New Supercapacitor Could Make Structural Energy Storage A Reality

Imagine a future in which our electrical gadgets are no longer limited by plugs and external power sources. This intriguing prospect is one of the reasons for the current interest in building the capacity to store electrical energy directly into a wide range of products, such as a laptop whose casing serves as its battery, or an electric car powered by energy stored in its chassis, or a home where the dry wall and siding store the electricity that runs the lights and appliances. It also makes the small, dull grey wafers that graduate student Andrew Westover and Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering Cary Pint have made in Vanderbilt's Nanomaterials and Energy Devices Laboratory far more important than their nondescript appearance suggests.
