Simulation-Driven Design and Manufacturing

“Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.”  – Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 – April 7, 1947)  Today, when I see a white car on the road, I can hardly tell what the exact color … Read More

Multiphysics Analysis of an Aircraft Radome

A variety of critical performance metrics can be predicted via simulation, including boresight error, transmission loss, bird-strike damage, and deflection under aerodynamic load. When it comes to aircraft design, engineers must meet standard requirements and consider every scenario. Would the … Read More

Matching Circuit Design Made Easy

An essential task in the design of any wireless system is to ensure proper impedance matching between the different components in the RF chain. Impedance mismatch will degrade the transfer of energy between the amplifier and the antenna and thus … Read More

Quantification of Metal Flow Lines

The design of a manufacturing process is iterative in nature. The influential process parameters which can be quantified (E.g. Die radius) are continuously optimized using metal forming simulators coupled with optimization algorithms. This approach is being successfully applied at various … Read More

How Technology and Design Converge

“If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.” (A. Einstein). Engineers are nerds. Designers are hipsters. How are they supposed to mix? The first ones see numbers and squares to calculate. The … Read More
