Nonlinear Response Optimization: Rapidly Design New Structures Incorporating Real World Loading

Many structures in the real world experience and exhibit nonlinear behavior. The nonlinearity may be due to material behavior, large deformations or contacts experienced during loading. This Webinar will focus on new optimization approaches for obtaining superior designs while incorporating nonlinear responses.

Building Ultra Light Data Transmission Cables: Carbon Based Conductor and EMI Shielding

In this webinar, Stefanie Harvey, PhD, principal scientist for TE Connectivity, will discuss how the substitution of carbon materials for metal as shielding and center conductor in data transmission cables can achieve weight savings between 30% (shielding only) to 70% (all carbon).

Process Design with Atmospheric and Low Pressure Gas Plasma

Gas plasma is a powerful tool allowing for molecular engineering of materials to impart unique surface properties, without affecting the bulk properties. Considerations in creating a plasma include power delivery, gas or vapor composition, or unique chamber configuration and design. Plasma systems exist that enable both facile batch processing or in-line treatments

There and Back Again: The Migration of Robotic Arm Technology from Mars to Earth

The Lunar Orbiting Laser Altimeter (LOLA) on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) launched in 2009 was NASA's first multi-beam lidar. LOLA has produced unprecedented topographic maps of the Lunar surface. LOLA used a Diffractive Optical Element (DOE) to produce five beams from a single laser for enhanced topographic spatial resolution.

Heat Transfer Simulation in Materials Processing

Thermal processes are often used to create materials with specific mechanical and physical properties for use in advanced product designs in many industries including medical products, automobiles, and aerospace. Gases or liquids are typically used to heat or cool materials via conjugate heat transfer. In this webinar, we will demonstrate the use of COMSOL Multiphysics to investigate the effect of fluid flow rate on the quenching of a hot component. Conjugate heat transfer can occur via conduction, convection and even radiation in the case of high processing temperatures and therefore represents a full-featured heat transfer and CFD application requiring multiphysics analysis for accurate simulation. A Q&A session will take place at the conclusion of the webinar.

Mastering Distributed Control with Fully Integrated Systems

Large multi-axis or multi-process machines often benefit from additional controllers operating local processes while a main controller coordinates the efforts for the entire machine. In these cases, the additional controllers may need enough processing power to handle multi-axis motion as well as localized I/O.

Good Data Gone Bad-Why it is important to recognize bad engineering data before using it for durability and performance analysis.

Collecting good time series data is not a trivial task. This presentation will shed some light on causes and examples of bad data, and what separates good data from bad data. We will explain ways to recognize bad data, and suggest best testing and analysis practices to ensure the best possible engineering decisions are being made.
