2017 Simulating Reality Magazine Featuring Additive Manufacturing is Here!

With the promise of endless possibilities for new structures, designs, and materials, Additive Manufacturing is currently in the uber-hyped mode. Not a week goes by without a new AM technology emerging or a new AM deal signed. Last year, the U.S. Air Force awarded $6 million to Aerojet Rocketdyne to develop standards for rocket parts made by AM. SpaceX received $33.6 million to develop the Raptor rocket propulsion system to be manufactured primarily using AM. General Electric announced that it would spend $1.4 billion to acquire two European 3D printing companies, and the list goes on. 

Additive Manufacturing is opening the door for the creation of all kinds of new materials. In powered bed metal AM processes, for example, simply mixing two different metal powders together in varying proportions before feeding the powder into the printer, allows manufacturers to create their very own customized alloys. With plastics and composites this process can arguably be even more diverse. Yet, we are still far off from AM becoming the next industrial revolution.

Improve FSAE Vehicle Performance with MSC Adams Car Sponsorship

Formula Student is a contest in which university students construct a single-seat formula racing car. It’s not the fastest car that wins, however, but rather the team that racks up the highest overall score across a range of categories: design, financial planning, and sales strategy. MSC Software has provided support to various teams with its ...

No More Guessing! – Enhanced Design Insight Using the EDEM-Adams Coupling

In this final blog of our Adams-EDEM co-simulation series, Darren Simoni from DSIM Technologies explains how EDEM and Adams have been used during the design of a skid-steer loader to increase the accuracy of system level simulation using less time and effort than traditional load estimation methods.

Multi-scale material modeling for additive manufacturing

While additive manufacturing of reinforced polymers is appealing and increasingly considered for production of actual parts, major obstacles must be overcome by engineers. Dimensional accuracy of the part must obey to strict tolerances that may not be met due to thermally induced part distortion or poor surface roughness. On the material side, an anisotropic material behavior is brought in by the specific 3D printed layered architecture and oriented reinforcements. This process-induced material behavior make the part mechanical response challenging to predict.

Therefore, Digimat, the material modeling platform, can offer you a solution to overcome your challenges.

Coupled Powertrain and Vehicle Analysis

Today's vehicle and powertrain engineers face increasing challenges to meet fuel economy and drive quality targets, while at the same time keep vehicle cost reasonable. Many of the new engine technologies designed to improve fuel economy create difficulties for the noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) engineer, whose job it is to assure a certain level of comfort for the occupants.
