New Research into Solving Simulation Bottlenecks

Research is under way to increase the performance of the LS-DYNA finite element program, which is used in automotive, aerospace, construction, military, manufacturing, and bio-engineering applications to simulate complex real-world problems. Most important is the research into its multifrontal linear solver. This 10-minute audio-visual presentation examines: leveraging new microprocessor architectures and emerging solid-state disks; improving the performance of factorization on large-scale distributed memory systems; and looking into distributed reordering and block low-rank approximation to enable LS-DYNA to handle even larger implicit models. Viewers will be able to submit questions and download a new white paper on important advancements affecting LS-DYNA.

Direction Finding: Its Importance in Our Changing World

Direction finding is important for civilian, defense, and law enforcement purposes. It involves the use of specialized instruments, antennas, and methods to determine the physical location of a source of RF energy or target. A radio direction finder estimates the direction of an emitter by measuring and evaluating electromagnetic field parameters. This 10-minute audio-visual presentation looks at direction-finding methods, applications, configurations, and benefits. Viewers will be able to submit questions and download a new Rohde & Schwarz white paper that is an essential resource for understanding all aspects of direction finding.

Pulsed Phase Noise Measurements: Challenges and Solutions

Thanks to advances in digital signal processing techniques, wireless communications and radar systems have become increasingly digital. Constraints have also been placed on packing more information into less bandwidth. For both systems, one of the key RF parameters that limits performance is phase noise.

Commercial Drones: High-Tech Toy or Security Risk?

Although radio controlled drones provide beneficial “eye in the sky” services such as search and rescue, they also raise serious privacy and safety concerns. The growing number of affordable drones capable of carrying payloads of 100 grams up to a few kilograms has resulted in the need for effective detection and monitoring solutions.

Why Your Leak Test Doesn’t Measure Up – and What Data Can Do About It

The struggle to test for and address leaks that lead to faulty parts isn’t new, but rising expectations for product quality are adding to the importance of today’s leak test. There are so many variables and potential points of failure that can skew the accuracy and consistency of the test. By making the test “smarter” with sensors, software, and analytics, you can manage variables faster and more reliably.

Thermoplastics: The Strongest Choice for 3D Printing

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) gives you the option of making functional plastic parts with the most commonly used industrial-grade thermoplastics – the same types of raw materials found in injection molding facilities. That’s important because the best way to predict a product’s end performance is to prototype it with a material as similar as possible to the finished part.
