    An adaptive and hierarchical steady-state finite-difference technique is employed in a fast-action, thermal-analysis template to model electronic and electrical packages under different thermal loadings (i.e. temperature differences leading to high stresses). These resultant temperature, stress and strain distributions over such packages are presented in 3-D colour isometric projections. The high ... View full abstract»

    A discussion is given on an alternative approach, using a knowledge-based expert system, to the design of offshore structures. The implemented expert system can assist engineers in the preliminary design of shallow-water offshore jacket structures. The system is capable of configuring and automatically generating the basic structural model of a fixed template-type steel jacket structure for analys... View full abstract»

    The ability to link automated tools for electronic circuit production is an important area in computer-aided engineering research. The need to link design and test generation techniques, to cater for the different levels of design skill likely to be available, is emphasised. The approach to electronic design automation and testing through the Exadat system, developed at Exeter University, is outli... View full abstract»

    During recent years the electronics manufacturing industry has had to cope with very rapid developments in semiconductor technology, while also having to adapt to the changes in manufacturing philosophy which are being applied to most industry sectors. During this period machine vision has become an integral part of the automation being used to increase the efficiency of quality of the printed cir... View full abstract»
