Rieter tested its new program by simulating
relatively simple axial stretching of a multi-layer carpeted material in a "picture-frame" apparatus.
IxChariot is the industry's leading tool for simulating
real-world applications to predict system performance under realistic load conditions," said Errol Ginsberg, Ixia CEO.
Designing and simulating
the 777 consumed about 2,200 workstations linked to a four-IBM mainframe cluster in Puget Sound, plus four more mainframes in other locations, and 3 terabytes of data.
Other enhancements include significantly faster cooling analysis and new ability to predict fiber orientation in MPI/Flow3D, a module designed for simulating
thick parts that are not well represented by a midplane model.
In the pods, which roughly simulate the interiors of the vehicles, the crews can see other vehicles, the enemy and the terrain through monitors hooked up to vision ports, simulating
the conditions a crew would encounter when the hatches are closed.
At present, the models take shortcuts in simulating
fluid flow in the core.
This bit stream is transferred to a simulating
CAN bus where it is merged with the bit streams of other simulating
That appears to be what's happening with software for simulating
the stretching and thinning of blow molded parisons and thermoformed sheet.
So far, Drexler and Merkle have succeeded in simulating
just a few components -- a bearing and a speed reduction, or planetary, gear -- of the thousands needed for these devices.
