50% of product failure is due to Mechanical Fatigue! How can you predict & avoid it?

Fatigue Analysis

Market data indicates that more than 50% of product failure is due to fatigue, which occurs in many different mechanical components such as turbines and other rotating equipment operating under intense, repeated cyclical loads. The primary tool for both understanding and being able to predict and avoid fatigue has proven to be finite element fatigue…

Saving Costs with Virtual Prototyping

Virtual prototyping

Leveraging the combined powers of 3D solid modeling and design analysis software, engineers can now test a design on the computer instead of using prototype-test iterations for design. CAD models have become virtual prototypes, and design analysis has supplanted physical testing, enabling faster, less costly, and more optimized product development. In addition, computer-based design analysis allows…

Transforming PLM for the Automotive Industry: Beyond the Status Quo [WHITE PAPER]

Today’s automotive companies are challenged to design and develop more complex vehicles faster than ever in an increasingly competitive global environment. Yet, despite years of investment, existing PLM systems are struggling to meet the challenge due to their inability to manage electronics, software and the complicated interfaces with manufacturing and suppliers. Automotive OEMs and tier…

Making the Case for Resilient PLM [WHITE PAPER]

It was only a decade or so ago that sensors and embedded software were mere supporting characters in product development, mostly associated with highly engineered products like aircraft and automobiles. Today, these technologies take center stage in products of all types, raising the bar for product lifecycle management (PLM) platforms and calling into question whether…

3D Printing for Medical Education and Training [WHITE PAPER]

The use of 3D printed anatomical replicas for medical education and training is steadily increasing, driven by a desire to find alternatives to expensive, hard-to-get cadavers; animal models that don’t include pathology; or mannequins that don’t represent the full range of clinical complexity. 3D printed static biomodels, instrumental for communicating anatomical structures, and physical simulators,…
