Software signals the way

With wireless capabilities being built into an enormous variety of products and gadgets, the challenges facing antenna designers are greater than ever. Paul Schreier examines how modelling software has improved to aid them along every step of the development and implementation trail

Closing the CAD/CAE gap

Vendors of analysis/CAE software are creating tight interfaces to CAD software; CAD firms are buying up CAE technology. Paul Schreier examines these trends and looks at what they mean to users and where they could take us

Aerospace modelling is taking off

Aircraft are enormously sophisticated systems - and expensive, as well, so effective prototyping becomes a matter of survival. Paul Schreier investigates how CFD and other engineering software tools have become indispensable in optimising aircraft and for developing completely new concepts

Modelling rides into the future

As auto manufacturers shift towards entirely new types of vehicles, they face a number of engineering challenges. Paul Schreier looks at how design/simulation software is helping them reach their goals more quickly and efficiently

Athletes go to the max

A variety of software is being used in the science of sports biomechanics to improve athletes' performance in safe ways. Paul Schreier looks at some interesting applications and the resulting improvements

The sound of software

Paul Schreier explores how scientific software has allowed some remarkable advances in the area of acoustics, which in turn have led to some very innovative products

Turbocharging CFD

Paul Schreier examines how CFD software suppliers are customising their products to meet the needs of specific industries - in this case, for turbomachinery engineers

New dimensions in printing

3D printers are becoming more affordable and are breaking into new application areas. However, as Paul Schreier reports, were not yet at the point where files are as easy to print as with document printers - software for fixing and preparing files for rapid prototyping is still required
