    CAE is used extensively in power systems to plan, design and operate generators, transmission circuits and sub-stations. This tutorial paper describes CAE methods for steady-state, transient and dynamic calculations, and shows that the use of computing systems and dedicated microprocessors is important in controlling and protecting all types of system.<> View full abstract»

    Much attention is currently being given to the development of environments of tools to help throughout the software development life cycle, with data shared through a central database. Similarly, CAD systems are promoted within VLSI chip design, architectural design and related areas as providing equivalent advantages. This paper provides a detailed comparison of these fields from a data modelling... View full abstract»

  • Problems of software portability with particular reference to engineering CAE/CAD systems

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):233 - 236

    Discusses the various problems faced by software houses which implement packages across a range of computer systems and workstations and how these may affect the end user engineer. Although some of the problems discussed may be particular to the engineering design environment, many are common with other areas of industry and commerce which use computer-based tools.<> View full abstract»

    The effects of the 'computerisation of engineering' are nowhere more far-reaching than in the area of software models of engineering systems. The author reviews the history of such modelling systems from their beginnings as simple subroutine libraries, through to their current highly interactive and visual nature. There are implications both for the kind of engineer that will be most likely to be ... View full abstract»

    Information sets (features) used in engineering design and manufacturing applications depend on the product type, the application and the process involved. Some features identified in a particular domain may be partially or fully mappable to other domains, while it may be that others are not. To integrate software for design, analysis and manufacturing, it is necessary to create feature mapping sy... View full abstract»

  • The implementation of a mechanical engineering design interface using engineering features

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):241 - 246

    Reports on the development of the engineering feature description concept. The features themselves are developed from a study of manufacturing methods. This approach provides a more natural and convenient method of representing a designer's intentions to geometric modelling software. A brief description of a software package, DLink, developed to provide such a designer interface is presented, and ... View full abstract»
