We designed a simple truss bridge. The limitations for the project was the bridge could only be min. 760mm span, max 300m high. Groups were required to design and build a "popsicle stick bridge". The bridge must support a specified design load of 22kg while minimizing overdesign in terms of amount of building material used in the construction.

Generating AMI Models for SerDes Applications

July 14, 2022 | 1:00 PM ET

The latest technology for serial links and memory interfaces is getting into the multi-gigabit range. We see them adopting multi-level modulations and more advanced data recovery methods. As a result creating a stable and compliant design is more challenging than ever before and standard signal integrity analysis is no longer sufficient. AMI (Algorithmic Modeling Interface) has become the industry standard for modeling and simulating SerDes transmitter and receiver behaviors. It includes equalization, and CDR (Clock Data Recovery) used for PCIe, USB, and Ethernet applications. It also helps SerDes design engineers to simulate their system quickly and accurately to determine BER (Bit Error Rate) and Eye Density. However, it is typically a challenging task to build an accurate AMI model that describes complex silicon. In this webinar, we show an easy-to-use workflow using PathWave ADS.

Robot Simulation: Make the Most of Your Investment in Automated Manufacturing

September 05, 2022 | 1:00 PM ET

Manufacturers in every industry are adopting robotic automation at an accelerating rate. The investment required for automation is often significant and comes with a host of options. What type or size of Robot should be selected? What throughput can be achieved through this new system? Will the workcell fit into my production line? All of these questions can be answered with Robot Simulation Software. This multi-function tool is invaluable in modeling complicated manufacturing systems. In addition to explaining how Robot Simulation Software can be utilized, this presentation will provide Case Studies that demonstrate how simulation early in the project can avoid later problems with Robot integration.

Wind Turbine Drivetrain Reliability: the tribology of premature bearing failures

September 14, 2022 | 2:00 PM BST

Wind energy continues to be one of the fastest growing energy installations to electrical grid around the world. In the US, wind is now the largest source of renewable electricity generation providing over 120 GW which is produced by over 70,000 turbines. Wind turbine operations and maintenance (O&M) wind can be challenging and costly; O&M costs currently represent the single largest component of wind plant operational expenditure with drivetrain reliability remaining a significant contributor to those O&M costs. The unique operational conditions of the bearing and gears within wind turbines has led to a number of tribological related failures, with the predominate and lesser understood failure mode attributed to a premature bearing failure referred to as white-etching cracks (WEC) or axial cracks. Several drivers have been identified that lead to WEC failures. In this talk we will review the research conducted at Argonne National Laboratory on studying the impact of lubricant chemistry, material cleanliness, and stray electrical currents have on promoting WEC failures.
