Mechanical Engineering Seminars

  •  Introduction To Mathematica

    Mr. Craig Bauling, Wolfram Research
    Seminar in Santa Clara University School of Engineering Design Center, Tuesday October 26, 2010

    Seminar Abstract

    Learn the capabilities and practical applications of Mathematica 7 in this short seminar. Mathematica is a comprehensive technical computational software used by engineers, mathematicians, scientists, and other professionals. Mathematica allows users to compute, model, simulate, visualize, and document almost anything. Mathematica has been built and perfected to become the ultimate technical application and environment. In this seminar, Craig Bauling of Worlfram Research will highlight the impact of Mathematica on education and research, discussing a wide variety of practical and theoretical applications. Attendees will come away with a comprehensive understanding of Mathematica's key capabilities and core design principles. Prior knowledge of Mathematica is not required -new users are encouraged to attend. Current users will benefit from seeing the many improvements and new features of Mathematica 7.

    “Multibody Dynamics Simulation using MSC Adams”
    Mr. Walt Daniel, MSC Software, Austin, TX

    Webcast live on location from Santa Clara University,
    Saturday, September 25, 2010

    Seminar Abstract

    Learn the basics of dynamic systems simulation with an overview of industrial applications, multiple Adams demonstrations, and three hands-on Training Segments (you build the model, analyze, and post-process with Adams on your system using the detailed instructions; bring your computer with Adams installed for the Hands-On Segments*). Adams is a widely used multibody dynamics simulation software package. With Adams, engineers can perform system-level analysis to evaluate and manage the complex interactions between disciplines including motion, structures and controls. This enables engineers to understand the dynamics of moving parts, how loads & forces are distributed throughout mechanical systems, and to optimize product designs for performance, safety, & comfort.

    Control systems may be linked with the Adams model.
