As electronics grow smaller and smaller and are used for extensive periods of time, their internal heat loads are greater and demand new compact cooling methods. Piezoelectric fans, a stepping stone between natural and forced convection, are one attractive option due to their low energy ... Read More
Proofs of concept are often the deciding factor in gaining the trust of a customer and generating a sale. But for high-tech companies like GrafTech, a leading producer of carbon and graphite for industrial applications, proofs of concept aren’t necessarily straightforward. With the ... Read More
As infrastructure ages and becomes obsolete, municipalities must deal with the constant updating and renovating required to maintain cities' adherence to modern standards. When it comes to water pipe networks, locating leaks is difficult. To combat this, engineers at Echologics created a ... Read More
Optimization is a subtle and delicate art, especially when it comes to motorcycles. Regulatory requirements on pass-by noise must be met, while a loud, rumbling muffler is integral to the perception of bike power. Engineers at Mahindra Two Wheelers perform a balancing act when developing ... Read More
All-optical networks were envisioned decades ago because of their potential for high transmission speeds to address the ever-increasing demands on the performance of communication networks. At Huawei Technologies Canada, critical optical components, including thermo-optic silicon ... Read More
Dozens of safety features in modern automobiles help reduce risk while driving, but regardless of their complexity, the most important obstacle between passengers and other cars is the frame. Safety standards require certain strengths for car frames, and much of this strength comes from ... Read More
Space is the epitome of an unpredictable and harsh environment. These conditions are near impossible to replicate via experimentation, making it exceedingly difficult to study the behavior of space-borne devices. To circumvent this issue, numerical simulation is often employed to ... Read More
When a component is as ubiquitous as a capacitor, its design process needs to allow for a lot of customization. This is because their large variety of applications, ranging from fighter jets and radar to wind turbines and solar energy, can entail distinct and demanding requirements. ... Read More
In the automobile industry, the only thing faster than the cars that are produced is their design cycle. Validation and physical prototyping can be expensive and time consuming, but getting as close as possible to a final design before transitioning from virtual prototyping can speed up ... Read More
When considering multiphysics processes entailing mass transport, phase transitions, and plastic deformation, your first thought may not be puffed rice. However, the production of puffed rice, like many other types of food, is incredibly complicated and involves multiple interconnected ... Read More
