Interactive Display Provides Pilots with Real-Time Sonic Boom Information

Ed Haering at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center and Ken Plotkin at Wyle have developed a software system capable of displaying the location and intensity of shock waves caused by supersonic aircraft. This technology can be integrated into cockpits or ground-based control rooms to help pilots place any loud booms in a specific location, minimizing their impact in populated areas. The system processes vehicle and flight parameters as well as data regarding current atmospheric conditions. The display provides real-time information regarding sonic boom location and intensity, enabling pilots to make the necessary flight adjustments to control the timing and location of sonic booms. This technology, which will play a key role in enabling supersonic overland flight, can be used on current-generation supersonic aircraft, which generate loud sonic booms, as well as future-generation low-boom aircraft, anticipated to be quiet enough to allow use over populated areas.

Strain Measurement using High-Speed Data Acquisition Systems in a Split-Hopkinson Bar Application

            Dynamic material testing, such as in a Split-Hopkinson bar test, requires high-speed data acquisition (DAQ) and sensors with enough bandwidth to capture these dynamic impulses. In this tech talk presentation, HBM, manufacturer of strain gauges, load cells, torque transducers, data acquisition systems and software, will give an introduction in Split-Hopkinson bar tests as well as discuss the required data acquisition systems for this type of testing.

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.

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.

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.
