Simcenter Madymo can simulate the impact of a car crash on the human body using Simcenter Active Human software, with the latest version now with solver run times reduced by 28 per cent over previous releases.

A Simcenter Active Human is a digital twin of an average adult male, with the model able to simulate a human body reacting to movements whilst maintaining posture with the use of a unique musculo-skeletal form guided by a control system of sensors and actuators - perfect for crash simulations.

The latest version of model has been extended with new features, including an active shoulder control, strength scaling, and drowsiness, sleep and unconsciousness modelling, helping users to accurately model human-like reactions needed for safer autonomous vehicle design.

The Create Education Project has announced its new Industry Partnership with online retail giant for all things electronic,RS Components and its own STEM platform, Imagine-X.

“STEM skills act as the perfect platform to a more socially mobile and globally impactful life. They broaden horizons, empower the disadvantaged and diversify life choices. But many young people have yet to see the ‘bigger picture’ impact these skills could have on the world,” said a spokesperson for Create.

“That’s why RS has developed Imagine-X. It links dynamic, exciting STEM subjects to real people who have used the same skills to make the world a better place. It gives teachers free curriculum-aligned resources for pupils aged 7 – 14, with one aim: helping pupils realise the far-reaching potential of STEM and their imaginations.”

HCL Technologies’ new release of CAMWorks ShopFloor aims to provide tools for companies to meet Smart Manufacturing initiatives by moving beyond 2D drawings or static digital files.

CAMWorks ShopFloor runs independently from any CAD software, removing the need to have a full CAD/CAM software license on the shop floor is eliminated, and letting everyone use 3D digital models with extensive data from the part design files so that machinists can produce parts with fewer miscommunications.

The new release includes automatic file checking to detect changes in either the CAD or CAM file and alert the user, to avoid machining the wrong revision of the part and maintain associativity along the digital thread.

Article tagged with: engineering, simulation, cloud, cfd, simscale

SimScale’s SaaS application for engineering simulation, has added radiation heat transfer analyses using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) within its platform.

Users of the cloud-based platform can now simulate the effects of radiation to optimise a comfortable environment within a room or an entire building, including office spaces, residential dwellings, or theaters.

“The inclusion of radiation, along with standard conduction and convection analyses, is a key ingredient to accurately predicting how placement of HVAC components such as outlets, air conditioning units or heaters will affect the temperatures and airflow felt by occupants,” said SimScale VP Jon Wilde.
