Five technologies that can help manufacturers evolve after COVID-19
There are many currently available technologies that can help keep manufacturers productive right away as everyone adjusts to the new normal.
Turbulence model developed to help aircraft capable of handling extreme scenarios
Purdue University researchers have developed a modeling approach that simulates the entire process of a vortex collision at a reduced computational time, which could help aircraft responds appropriately.
How modern simulation software addresses intralogistics challenges
Cover Story: Advanced simulation software provides optimization insight, enabling distribution and fulfillment centers to address issues and optimize efficiency. See video.
Simulation needs to overcome perceived complexity and trust issues
Industry experts offered views about the benefits simulation technologies might offer in the process and manufacturing sectors.
Process simulation benefits for manufacturers
Process simulation can be an invaluable tool to compare alternatives and justify the cost for manufacturing and manufacturing-related processes.
Teaching engineers skills through video games and simulation
Using video games that are designed to teach engineers how to act in certain safety situations can provide training and experience for plant-floor operations, which can help narrow the skills gap.
Guiding vibration simulations for turbines
The Duke-led GUIde Consortium develops faster, more accurate simulations of turbine blade vibrations to help aeronautical engineers develop safer jet turbines with lower maintenance costs.
Machine design concepts improve automation and controls simulation
Virtual design tools and automation software intersect to save time and costs in machine commissioning so engineers can spot potential flaws before implementation.
Plug and model simulation tools for automation software development suites
Simulation, modeling, and virtual commissioning are becoming easier to apply on different levels in automation. Interfaces to third-party simulation tools may be built into your software development suite already.
How simulation helps automation and controls
The controls often must be programmed for automated machinery and systems before hardware exists, but controls engineers can use simulations to test syntax, proper tag linking and addressing, and code functionality.
