Now in Modeling & Computational Methods
By using sophisticated simulation and analysis software, engineers can solve for more than one physical phenomenon at a time, saving considerable time and money in a variety of applications. Advanced simulation with design is becoming more accessible for larger companies with analysts on staff and for individual design engineers.
Transporting extremely heavy loads over land involves serious logistics in any country. By transferring some of the load from the bridge roadway directly to the bridge piers, a French company and its German logistics partner were able to transfer loads weighing more than 400 tons from a Mediterranean port to a plant 150 km inland.
A meshless computational method is a way to solve complex engineering problems that does not require the time-consuming construction of a complex mesh that connects millions of nodes. Meshless methods are just as accurate as more standard approaches, such as finite difference/volume, finite element, and boundary element methods, and are also faster, simpler, and require far less data storage.
ASME Systems and Design Groups promote the art and science of Mechanical Engineering in the broad technical areas of Systems and Design.
