How does cold crucible induction melting ensure titanium purity?

Melting a metal without it touching the crucible walls, is like melting butter without it touching the bowl!…

Meet Siemens at NAFEMS CAASE20

Throughout the year, engineers at Siemens work with our customers and partners to deliver improved, more robust simulation software that will help users deliver innovations faster and with greater confidence. We are looking forward to sharing these new technologies with you at CAASE20….

Pushing the Envelope: Maximizing efficiency with Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

There are a variety of definitions and interpretations of what efficiency means. In the simplest…

Bearing Transmission Failures: How to Avoid Them With Virtual Prototyping

Bearings allow complex machinery to rotate by making the rotation possible while reducing friction, and are therefore vital to system efficiency and reliability. Improving bearing design through virtual prototyping is a cost-effective and thorough design approach, which reduces transmission downtime and failures….

Excellence in electric vehicle NVH at Karma Automotive

What should an electric sports car engine sound like? There is currently no clear answer to this question, as there is very little history of electric vehicles to draw from. Engine noise is also brand-specific, so even existing electric vehicles will sound different depending on which company produced them. …

How Rule of Mixtures is Killing Your Composite Design

Rule of Mixtures is probably the most known and widespread method of estimating composite properties. Its notoriety in composite design circles is also its main problem: Rule of Mixtures has been overused and applied to cases that do not even come close to respecting its original, simplifying assumptions. …

Fatigue Challenge of Additive Manufacturing

The Fatigue Challenge of Additive Manufacturing: A Simulation-Based Approach

Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D-printing, allows the production of complex components layer by layer, using only the material you need. Siemens Digital Industries Software offers simulation-based solutions to predict and optimize Additive Manufacturing product performance….

Multiscale Analysis: A General Overview and Its Applications in Material Design

Modeling advanced materials accurately is extremely complex. Multiscale simulations achieve balance between simulation accuracy and computational efficiency by capturing their behavior and important features at multiple scales….
