Morphing 3D-Printed Architectures into 4D
No longer will designers focus solely on dimensions like height, width and depth.
Trust, Technology and Being Human
An engineering workflow needs to take human nature and the pros and cons of software recommendations into account.
Simulation Transition: Meshing and Elements
This month, we look at the array of elements and provide some insight into their application in the world of simulation analysis.
Machines Learn Differently
This commentary gets practical about one set of AI technologies that’s just about ready for broader adoption: machine learning (ML).
Transition to Simulation: Linear and Nonlinear Buckling
Buckling describes where structural failure can occur when compressive loads are applied to a slender structure.

Transition to Simulation: Spectrum of FEA Analysis, Part 2
This month, we continue exploring the spectrum of FEA to include even more available tools. If you enjoy designing mechanical systems, you’ll naturally want to take every opportunity to develop the most robust and well-tested products.
Predictive Maintenance Improves Efficiency
Considering the aggressive time to market required for industrial products and services, it is crucial to identify the cause of potential failures before they occur.
Giving Machines the Sense of Touch
It’s important to remember that the sensor is still in the early stages of development, yet the technology represents a step closer to giving robots, prosthetics and electronic devices the sense of touch.
Hack Your New Year’s Resolution
Small successes can lead to setting loftier goals, but the trick is to build on each success to get there, rather than trying to achieve too much too soon.
The Spectrum of FEA Analysis
This month's column explores the common swath of tools available inside the simulation toolbox.
