    Traditionally, CAD systems have been algorithm-based and have only played a passive role in the design process. However, if the full potential of the VLSI processing capability is to be realised, it is necessary to evolve tools that are more active in the design process; so that designs may not only be produced quickly, but also be correct first time. Furthermore, the use of tools that make intell... View full abstract»

  • Design of engine cover system using FEA

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):98 - 102

    This article describes the effective use of CAD/CAE in the design and analysis of a rocker arm cover system. Non-linear finite-element analysis (FEA) is used to predict the behaviour of the rocker arm cover and the associated sealing system under applied load. The geometry of the cover, which is relatively complicated, is generated with state-of-the-art commercial software and then transferred to ... View full abstract»

  • A system for engineering animation with automatic motion control

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):103 - 115

    Motion control is the most difficult and time-consuming process in the development of animated simulations. Most of the animation systems reported in the available literature concentrate on graphical representations, and less attention is given to the development of automatic motion-control methods. The authors present a new approach to the design and implementation of a system, which allows non-s... View full abstract»

  • Software engineering tools for system development

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):116 - 121

    With the increasing cost of application system development, the lack of skilled personnel and the growth in the demand for new systems, data processing managers are being forced to consider new approaches to system development. The use of software engineering methods and practices have gone some way towards solving their problems. However, although software engineering methods provide increased qu... View full abstract»

  • A microcomputer-aided system for selecting arc-welding process parameters

    Publication Year: 1991, Page(s):122 - 125
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (270 KB)

    The finite-element method is used to establish a mathematical model of heat transfer in arc welding. The 800-500 degrees C cooling time (the t/sub 8/5/ time) of the metal adjacent to the weld junction can be precisely calculated by the model. The quantitative relationships between the welding process parameters, the value of t/sub 8/5/, the microstructures and the properties of a welded joint are ... View full abstract»
