Achieving Total Data Awareness: How Traceability Improves Manufacturing

Traceability has variable and narrow definitions depending on the industry, product, and application. As a result, narrow solutions are often adopted yet only deliver the required data scope for a subset of a specific product. The issue with this approach is twofold: First, it only delivers a short-term solution, as traceability requirements expand continuously. Second, it neglects a significant opportunity to achieve real process intelligence and control.

Heat Pipe Design and Modeling: Theory, Finite Element Analysis, and Applications

Today’s finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software packages allow designers to identify thermal challenges early in the design process, but models are only as accurate as their boundary conditions.

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers - How Fiber Lengths and Loading Define the Achievable Properties and Dictate the Manufacturing Techniques

The Webinar will look at the properties of thermoplastic composites. Focusing mainly on carbon-fiber filled composites, we will show how the geometry of the filler, as well as the amount of filler, affects the properties of the finished article. The filler properties also generally determine the available manufacturing techniques that can be used.

Heat Transfer Simulation in Materials Processing

Engineers in the aerospace, defense, heavy manufacturing, automotive, and medical product industries develop processes to produce materials with specific mechanical and physical properties. In this webinar, we will demonstrate the analysis of conjugate heat transfer problems in COMSOL Multiphysics that are relevant to material processing, and investigate the effects of fluid flow on the quenching of hot components. The analyses show the effects of conduction, convection and radiation for sufficiently high processing temperatures. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.

Testing Astronaut-Controlled Surface Robots from the International Space Station

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA) are currently developing robots that can be remotely operated on planetary surfaces by astronauts in orbiting spacecraft. The primary objective of this work is to test and demonstrate crew-controlled communications, operations, and telerobotic technologies that are needed for future deep space human exploration missions. Specifically, NASA’s “Human Exploration Telerobotics” (HET) project and ESA’s “Multi-Purpose End-To-End Robotic Operations Network” (METERON) project are complementary initiatives that aim to validate these technologies through a range of ground and flight experiments with humans and robots in the loop.
