Arm Control for World's Largest Functional Brain Model

Spaun, the world's largest functional model of the human brain, has a digital eye, which it uses for visual input, and a robotic arm that it uses to draw its responses. Having a realistic arm that behaves similarly to an actual arm, with appropriate muscle responses and arm segment lengths and mass, is important to getting human-like results.

Next Generation Non-Destructive Material Analysis - How Handheld FTIR Spectroscopy is Changing Damage and Contamination Analysis, Coating Evaluation, and Material Identification

Handheld FTIR spectroscopy provides a range of new capabilities for non-destructive testing of composites, coatings and polymers. This technique allows the user to take the instrument directly to the object requiring analysis, regardless of its location or size—eliminating the need to transport an object or sample to a traditional lab. Measurements can be made in situ and in real-time, enabling greater flexibility in understanding what and where to measure. It also means that it is not necessary to excise a sample from the object, making handheld FTIR a truly non-destructive testing solution.

High-Speed Imaging: More Than Just Pretty Pictures

We have all seen slow-motion replays in sports broadcast, as well as on TV commercials and popular YouTube channels. Myths have been debunked, water balloons popped, and bullets shot. Watching slow-motion replay of very fast phenomena has led to deeper scientific understanding and breakthrough discoveries. But, there is more to high-speed imaging that slow-motion playback. Camera systems can be integrated with data acquisition to allow the correlation of external measurements to visual feedback; motion analysis tools in playback software can use data in the image to calculate speed, acceleration, angles, and more. And, tracking points in a slow-motion playback can lead to additional visual insights.

Structural Mechanics Analysis with COMSOL Multiphysics

Attend this webinar with guest speaker, Dr. Mark Yeoman, director and founder of Continuum Blue. Yeoman will discuss several projects for which Continuum Blue has used COMSOL Multiphysics. These include simulating thermal contact and phase change during the laminating of structures, and the dynamic analysis of subsea cables. COMSOL can be used to simulate structures under loads and perform multiphysics analysis when thermal or fluid loads are present.

Addressing Aircraft System Development Disconnects

System design is, by nature, a process of decomposition, starting from specifications and resulting in a detailed, multi-discipline design. Systems failures are often the result of disconnects in the process. However, gaps can be closed by moving to model-driven development in a structured, requirements-driven process. By applying a seamless, concurrent development process, engineers are able to move validation and verification earlier into the design cycle, when changes can have positive impacts and real improvements can be made.

Reverse Engineering: The First Step to Efficient Design and Analysis in the Aerospace Industry

Reverse engineering is fast becoming a more popular method of creating 3D data without existing CAD files. This process reconstructs classic designs and implements new ones. It can generate lost or absent design documentation and update or create “as-built” documentation.
