Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of SAE: Multimaterial Lightweighting

In Conjunction with SAE The quest to improve the fuel economy of vehicles is not waning, nor is the desire to achieve higher mpg through the use of just the right lightweight material for the right vehicle application. Advanced high-strength steel, aluminum, magnesium, composites, and other materials are all on the table to fulfill the industry’s safety and lightweighting goals.

Identifying the Root Cause of EMC Compliance Problems at a PCB level

EMC chambers are not the best tool to use for debugging when a device fails compliance tests or to diagnose root causes of failures. Detection of emissions hot spots using hand held sniffer probes can be effective but it is slow and does not deliver a full board picture of the problem. The probe array based Very-Near-Field scanning technique developed by EMSCAN allows real-time evaluation of the spatial distribution of emissions over the entire board.

Aerogel Hybrid Composite Materials: Designs and Testing for Multifunctional Applications

NASA has a history of collaboration with industry for the development of aerogels in different forms. Scientists at KSC have continued to expand the design, development, and applicability of using aerogels by developing advanced composite materials and systems with multi-functional capabilities. Hybrid composite systems include aerogel/polymer composites (AeroPlastic), aerogel/foam composites (AeroFoam), and aerogel/fiber laminate systems (AeroFiber).

Managing Inherent and Environmental Thermal Effects On High-Power Laser Systems

A laser will only perform as designed if it emits the correct amount of power or energy and if the beam size is correct for the intended use. The same is true for high-powered lasers, however, the thermal effects that these lasers have on the system add a level of complexity to the application. Some thermal effects are inherent to the system as higher levels of light are applied to components within the system. Other thermal effects come from sources external to the system, such as debris produced from material processing.

10x Faster Finite Element Analysis of Injection Molded Parts. The Secret? Faster Mid-Surface Modeling and Meshing!

The process of creating midsurface geometry and finite element meshes of injection molded plastics such as automotive interior trim components, aircraft overhead bins, and electronic cases can require extracting dozens of planar and curved midsurfaces, adjoining specific free edges, meshing, and more. Unfortunately with existing finite element pre/post processors, the process can require multiple days to complete.

Phase Change Material (PCM) Heat Sinks: Fundamentals of Operation and Real World Applications

Phase Change Materials (PCMs) Heat sinks provide significant temporary thermal energy storage in an increasing number of military and commercial applications. PCM essentially take benefit from the latent heat required for the solid-to-liquid and liquid-to-gas phase transitions. When properly engineered for power and mission duration, PCM solutions can be used as passive, lightweight, reliable backups or standalone heat sinks.
