3D Printing for Machine Design

Metals and plastics have long been used for machine parts. Their durability, strength, and reliability in machines that operate continuously for millions of cycles make them the standard in automated machinery. However, for these same reasons, the use of 3D printed parts has been questioned and not widely adopted by manufacturers. This view should be reconsidered as 3D printed components offer a lower cost means to produce prototype components and end use components for machinery.

Exploiting the Time Domain in X-rays: The Modulated X-ray Source and its Diverse Applications

X-rays are valued in astronomy as probes of energetic phenomena in the Universe, in medical imaging for their ability to penetrate soft tissue, and in materials analysis because they reveal physical and chemical properties of substances in commercial and research applications.

Why Bad Things Happen (Sometimes) to Good Medical Devices (and Companies) . . . and How to Prevent It!

It’s often been said “left to their own devices, Engineers would create the best product that no one would buy – or use”! But before everyone screams and yells at their PC, tablet, or other “digital communicator”, let’s take a minute and reflect.

Aerogels with Improved Properties for Aeronautic and Space Applications

Current aerogel products on the market today are silica–based and break down on handling, shedding small dust particles. Hence, they require encapsulation for most applications and insulation properties degrade over time as particles settle. In contrast, polyimide aerogels are flexible, mechanically robust and do not shed dust. Other properties (thermal conductivity, dielectric, etc.) are similar to silica aerogels.

Tesla Motors Utilizes Altair HyperStudy to Explore and Optimize Pedestrian Impact Performance

The design group at Tesla Motors has faced the challenge of meeting legal pedestrian impact requirements and the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) without affecting the vehicle styling. Over the past few years the allowable injury threshold has steadily been lowered, forcing vehicle manufacturers to come up with innovative solutions.
