products New Products Mathcad Prime 1.0

PTC has released the next generation of its engineering calculation software. In addition to an open architecture and easy-to-use live

mathematical notation functionality, Mathcad Prime 1.0 delivers a new task-based user interface that aids engineers and organisations in streamlining critical design processes. Mathcad presents calculations, text and images in an understandable format, enabling knowledge capture, reuse and design verifi cation, resulting in improved product quality with faster

FDTD Solutions 7.5

Lumerical Solutions has released FDTD Solutions 7.5, which features a concurrent computing capability allowing users to distribute simulations on multiple independent computer resources. Together with Lumerical’s capabilities for distributed computation on high-performance computing clusters, FDTD Solutions 7.5 offers speed improvements when used on multiple desktops and workstations within traditional computer networks. Researchers and designers can

FieldAlign V3.0 Cresset has released a new version of its FieldAlign package. FieldAlign V3.0 is the latest of the company’s new generation of ‘cloud enabled’ applications, which support parallel, distributed computing by default. A molecular design and 3D Structure Activity Relationship (SAR) tool that generates biologically-relevant molecular comparisons, it can be used to fi nd the root causes of activity or inactivity

access the concurrent computing capabilities available in FDTD Solutions 7.5 by obtaining Extra Engines licenses. Each additional one enables another computer resource to take part in a parameter sweep or optimisation task. By deploying FDTD Solutions 7.5 alongside Extra Engines, users can make maximal use of their computing resources to rapidly explore a broad parameter space to identify the best design.

time-to-market. Full support for units throughout all calculations created in Mathcad Prime 1.0 improves

process effi ciency by helping to reduce errors and increase accuracy of results, and the intuitive equation editor enables users to express problem constraints and solutions in natural maths notation. It is supplied and supported in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria and the Nordic countries by Adept Scientifi c.

CarMaker 3.5 IPG

Automotive has

announced its latest version of CarMaker 3.5, an open integration and testing platform

designed to deliver more effi ciency to the development process and open up new applications in the fi eld of virtual test driving. The ‘SensoWheel’ steering simulator is the result of the integration of the precision-steering model by

New Parallel Computing support for Real-Time Workshop MathWorks has announced a new capability that accelerates code generation for design engineers. This enhancement is available through Real-Time Workshop, a code generation tool that utilises the performance scaling capabilities of Parallel Computing Toolbox and Matlab Distributed Computing Server (MDCS). The capability also extends existing parallel computing support in other MathWorks tools to improve the overall effi ciency of working with large-scale applications, including computationally- intensive design tasks such as updating models and running simulations. In addition to Real-Time Workshop, Parallel Computing Toolbox and Matlab Distributed Computing Server support other products for model-based design including Simulink, Simulink Design Optimisation, Simulink Control Design, and Simulink Verifi cation and Validation.

Pfeffer into the CarMaker simulation platform, and a realistic steering sensation comes from the steering

torque in the driver-vehicle-road interface. This also makes changes in suspension kinematics and control interventions identifi able and perceptible.

Version 9.0 (update) Integrated Engineering Software, a developer of hybrid simulation tools for electromagnetic, thermal and structural design analysis, has completed updates across its product range. Version 9.0 of Integrated’s tools now include the ability for simulation results to be imported directly into Tecplot’s CFD visualisation tools, offering engineers greater opportunity to model and visualise their ideas more accurately.

This ability is available across the range of Integrated’s simulation tools, including its three dimensional programs electrostatic (Coulomb), eddy current (Faraday) and heat transfer (Celsius) solvers, and Singula, its high frequency fi eld solver. Tecplot product compatibility will be included with Lorenz, the 2D/3D electromagnetic analysis and hybrid simulation software in 2011.
