Manufacturers of all sizes can now predict a vehicle's external aerodynamic performance and improve the cooling, comfort, visibility and stability features in their designs - without the need for numerous physical wind tunnel
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.
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 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.
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.
