Streamlining aerospace design

Engineers want to work on designing new aircraft, so getting software packages to talk to each other is critical, as Robert Roe reports

October/November 2014

Software gets student engineers into top gear

Robert Roe looks at how software can help train the engineers of tomorrow

October/November 2014

Can there be magic in the computing machine?

Tom Wilkie reports on the marriage of magic and Matlab in motor car design

August/September 2014

Make the tools easy to use

Blakelee Midyett, general manager of Golden Software, believes that usability will be the key to mastering Big Data

August/September 2014

Controlling weather with a hammer?

Thomas Hill and Paul Lewicki, authors of Statistics: Methods and Applications, consider the outlook and trends in predictive and advanced analytics

August/September 2014

Engineering simulation: past, present and future

Bill Clark, executive vice president of CD-adapco, considers the successes of computer-aided engineering through the ‘three ages of CFD’

August/September 2014

Behing the technology trends

Jack Little, president of Mathworks, looks at the long-term transformations that will change how scientists and engineers solve their complex design and analysis problems

August/September 2014

Simulation – an innovator’s dilemma

Dominic Gallello, president and CEO of MSC Software Corporation, believes that simulation is coming to the end of a 40-year cycle and change will be rapid in the future

August/September 2014

Mathematical power drives future technology

Mathematics underpins every technical discipline’s logical advance and mathematics education is vital to the future, according to Jim Cooper, president and CEO of Maplesoft

April/May 2014

Why use 
modelling software?

High-performance computing is increasingly being used to interpret financial data, explains Robert Roe

April/May 2014

Drug discovery with data

In the second part of our series on computational chemistry, Siân Harris looks at the role of modelling and high-quality data in the pharmaceutical industry

April/May 2014

Sound 
and science

Jean-Louis Migeot argues that acoustic simulation needs to be an early part of any product design and that software is now available to ensure it can be done easily

February/March 2014

Compound benefits

Computers play an important role in the development of new chemical compounds today, writes Sian Harris in the first of two articles on computational chemistry
