What They Didn’t Teach You in Engineering School About Heat Transfer

Until recently, the commercial software available for CFD typically has been geared towards specialists, limiting its widespread use. Besides being expensive, these tools have either been difficult, cumbersome or time-consuming to use. As a result, engineering analysis for applications such as heat transfer traditionally have been carried out by specialists in analysis departments, separate from mainstream design and development departments.

Solving the System-Level Thermal Management Challenges of LEDs

As thermal management continues to be critical to LED performance, thermal simulation is playing an increasingly important role in LED system design. New generation CAD-embedded thermal and fluid simulation software makes it possible for LED systems designers to diagnose thermal problems, evaluate a large number of design alternatives quickly, and iterate rapidly to an optimal solution. Another bonus? Having a deep understanding of the computational aspects of fluid dynamics is no longer a requirement...

Telematics: An Industry Game-Changer

Telematics is the transmission of machine data to a remote consumer. If that remote consumer is an electronic device rather than a human, the process is called machine-to-machine (M2M) communications. The emerging M2M revolution is based on innovations in hardware and software that are converging to form a whole new way of transacting business.

Buyer’s Guide for FEA Software

In selecting a finite element analysis (FEA) software solution, it is crucial that you consider the pre- and postprocessor, which can be critical for the analysis speed and accuracy. FEA analysts rely on the pre- and postprocessor to work with an assortment of data files, provide a variety of ways to idealize the model, support one or more solvers and produce the data and reports that are needed to meet both internal and external requirements. Engineering managers rely on the pre- and postprocessor solution to reduce the risks associated with accuracy while meeting time-critical product development deadlines. Click here to download.

Changing Face of Robotics

Robotic technology has improved dramatically in the past decade, and applications are getting more exciting. A whole new generation of engineering and scientific techniques have emerged that has fuelled the rapid pace of innovation within the modern robotics community. What was once the stuff of science fiction seems to be within reach for the engineering community! The use of symbolic techniques has rapidly evolved in the robotics industry, and many streamlined products are beginning to enter mainstream engineering. MapleSim, the system-level modeling platform from Maplesoft, is an example. Aside from the introduction of a component-based physical modeling graphical user interface, there are other technological advancements under the hood.
