Live Panel Discussion: Breathing Life into Digital Twins: March 14, 2017

Time-stamped temperatures collected in the field, user heart rates accumulated in health monitoring devices, acceleration data captured by smart vehicles--there's a wealth of wisdom in sensor-captured data, but working with it requires special knowledge and tools. In this LIVE roundtable, DE's Kenneth Wong moderates a panel of experts to discuss: Determining the right data, frequency, and amount to collect to prevent information overload; linking sensor data to CAD models to create digital twins; and conducting system simulation with sensor data.

Live Panel Discussion: Optimal Design Technology Outlook: Jan. 31, 2017

In the past, engineers relied on their industry knowledge, experience, and aesthetic sensibilities to decide the shape of a product. Today, they have the option to turn to generative design, topology optimization, and other technologies to solicit input from AI-like algorithms. But not enough of them may be taking advantage of the new tools, or even know about them. Our expert panelists will discuss how design optimization works whether the software-proposed answers can be trusted and whether automated design will replace design engineers.

Multiphysics Simulation of a Microfluidic Device: May 3, 2016

This webinar will introduce attendees to numerical simulation using COMSOL Multiphysics®. The presenter will show participants how to model a microfluidic separator. Fluid flow through microfluidic channels, an alternating electric field, and the resulting motion of individual particles will be accounted for. The methods shown are applicable to many engineering design problems. We will also show how the model can be used to build a custom application that makes it easy for others in your organization to explore and optimize designs. The presentation will include a demo and a Q&A session.
