Using PBS Professional Hooks: Examples and Benefits

By Martin Nicholls
12 August 2014

White Paper Lead ImageThis paper examines practical uses of the PBS Professional® hook mechanism, to help achieve site requirements, based on our experiences at The University of Queensland Research Computing Centre. The paper includes descriptions of several real-world applications for job submission hooks (qsub_hook) and includes example code to help commence implementation of a generic hook able to handle both job submission and job modification events.

Optimizing an Electromechanical Device with Multidimensional Analysis Software

By Dr Kent Davey, Fellow IEEE Member; Dennis Peterson, Integrated Engineering Software; Dr Durrell Ritt
4 November 2013

Modern CAE software allows engineers to investigate a multitude of design variations that could not possibly be considered using conventional physical prototypes. In this paper we will first illustrate parametric methods for automatically creating virtual prototypes of electromechanical actuators (in our case simple electromagnetic solenoids) using the AMPERES and MAGNETO programs from Integrated Engineering Software. We will then use a specific case study to show how the Tecplot Chorus program can assist in determining optimal design choices.

Are you maximising the value of your assets?

By Paula Hollywood, ARC Advisory Group
27 September 2013

The paradox of the analytical laboratory is that labs utilize some of the most advanced and sophisticated instrumentation in the plant, yet continue to use the oldest data storage method – pencil and paper. Laboratory software has evolved to the point where the paperless lab is not only possible, but achievable.

SampleManager 11

By Thermo Scientific
8 May 2013

SampleManager 11 puts decision-making power where it belongs, in the hands of users who can make logical choices about workflow, instrument integration and data reporting for management metrics or regulatory requirements. Ideally, today’s labs aren’t only paperless; they are powerful enterprise drivers for business transformation. A workflow-driven LIMS delivers the agility necessary for today’s businesses to transform as the regulatory or economic environment requires.

Simulation of Coupled Electromagnetic/Thermal Systems using CAE Software

By Integrated Engineering Software
4 April 2013

Coupled thermal/electromagnetic software provides significant benefits for designers of induction heating systems. Most significant among those benefits are (1) it circumvents the possibility of geometry errors in having to port geometry between programs, and (2) the time saved in having to work through a problem setup twice. The exercises in this white paper should give the reader a heightened confidence in the software's accuracy.
