In the previous tutorial we have seen how you can create a 1d model of typical spring damper and simulate it dynamically either by using the differential equations or by transfer function through SolidThinking Activate (or by Simulink).
Here we … Read the rest
Few weeks back SolidThinking Activate (equivalent to Matlab Simulink) is released under its math and system modelling portfolio. Being a Simulink user thought of exploring it with the classical spring and damper system, a single input single output (SISO) system… Read the rest
Few weeks back SolidThinking Inspire version 2016.1 has been released. I am following the tool from its version 2015 avatar, and really happy the way the tool is flexing its muscle to become probably the most easy to use yet … Read the rest
Typically the value engineering (VA/VE) practices take already designed, validated and productionised components and apply the VA/VE methodologies to increase the value of the product either by reducing cost (weight) or increasing functionality.
What if we, the designers or

The early 80s saw a lot of advancements in the field of automotive engineering, mostly concerned with safety during driving and to make the driving a lot easier during adverse conditions. As a result a chain of new safety features … Read the rest
Modern day automobiles employes many systems like ABS, ESP, ESC etc to keep car safer and safer. Air Bag system is another important safety feature used commonly. The system helps in protecting the driver from serious injury that could be … Read the rest
When deciding for the beam section to have, the first consideration to be done is what purpose it need to serve i.e. what kind of loads it will deal with. In general the following cross section choices are available for … Read the rest
