A Better Way to Measure Displacements and Strains: Optical Metrology for the Next Generation in Aerospace, Automotive and Micro-Electronics

ARAMIS is a true finite element measurement system that allows you to intuitively understand the material response of complex structures under test and directly validate detailed computer models. The PONTOS optical mobile measurement system provides 6-DOF (degrees of freedom) measurement of all types of structures, from wing flexure (NASA Dryden) to rocket motor vibration studies and modal analysis, all with the same hardware. Our equipment can study everything from thermal expansion (using ARAMIS Thermography) to vibration and shock, with cameras running at up to 10M fps (frames per second). The data collected can then be used for everything from materials studies to manufacturing quality control reports.

3D Printing: Multi-Materials and Vibrant Color

Connex 3D Printing was the first technology to offer multi-material 3D printing. With the Objet500 Connex3, Stratasys launched another first: a color, multi-material 3D printer. Combining three base materials dramatically extends the possibilities — rich, vibrant colors and unprecedented material versatility.

Developing the Transition®: Simulation for Composite Structure in a Flying Car

Developing a practical vehicle that simultaneously satisfies road and aircraft regulations to become a true "flying car" presents significant engineering challenges. Yet this is what the team at Terrafugia has achieved with their proof-of-concept vehicle known as the Transition®, which has been flying and driving for the past 2 years. The next generation prototype is currently in development with the aid of simulation packages to allow for rapid design iteration before performing required physical tests.

SystemC Virtual Platform Creation

Virtual platforms are abstract simulation models that mimic the functionality of a product. A key step in the maturity of virtual platforms was the release of the IEEE standard 1666 for SystemC, a standard selected by the industry as the preferred implementation language. However, many design teams lack SystemC expertise.

More Power! The Art of Welding With a Handheld Laser Torch

Developed at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) to repair hard-to-reach Space Shuttle engine nozzles, the handheld laser torch is designed for welding and brazing metals. It incorporates various manual controls and changeable lenses to allow the operator to adjust the laser’s power output in real time. The controls and lenses are designed to increase precision, portability, and maneuverability as compared to existing automated lasers and traditional welding techniques such as tungsten inert gas (TIG), metal inert gas (MIG). or gas-tungsten arc welding (GTAW) systems.
