Multiplexed, Wireless, and Passive Surface Acoustic Wave Sensors

This Webinar will discuss the operation and potential applications of wireless, multiplexed, surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensors. SAW sensors have been studied for many years, but recent work at UCF/KSC has led to multiplexing concepts that allow these sensors to be part of a wireless network.

Zoom in On the Details: Multi-Domain Technology for Impact and Crash Simulation

Time step discrepancy is a major bottleneck in explicit computation. Predicting physical phenomena through simulation – such as a full vehicle crash - requires models meshed with either solid or shell elements integrating complex behavior including failure criteria. A local high mesh density is needed to accurately predict rupture modes and map their effects at the global model scale. Due to these smaller elements users are forced to decrease the time step or add artificial mass to insure numerical stability, consequently affecting the computation time and results accuracy of the whole model.

Improved Configuration Management in Aerospace Electrical Design

Configuration management of design data is a big challenge in aerospace electrical design. Creating, tracking, and checking the many variants of individual features is a challenge both from the standpoint of electrical integrity -“Does this configuration operate correctly?”; and from the standpoint of data management – “How to manage multiple effectivities without massive data duplication?”

A Design Engineer's Guide to Specifying Custom Bearings: Optimizing Features and Cost

As an engineer, one of the first lessons of design is to specify standard products if possible. With today’s demands for smaller, more reliable and more cost efficient products, engineers are often faced with significant design and performance challenges. So why should an engineer consider specifying a custom bearing?

Controlling Surface Chemistry and Morphology to Promote or Prevent Adhesion

We encounter interfacial interactions every day. Our tires grip the road because frictional forces between the rubber and concrete prevent tires from slipping. Conditioner moisturizes hair because it is designed to make contact with each strand to deliver moisturizing agents that separate the strands. Not unlike these interactions, the ability to controllably alter interfacial or adhesion interactions is important for a wide variety of industries from aerospace to marine to space exploration. To control interfacial interactions, both surface chemistry and topography play vital roles.
