  • Safety first-applying computer-based safety systems in the offshore environment

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):245 - 250
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (483 KB)

    The techniques used to design and apply triple modular redundant (TMR) computer-based safety control systems for the North Sea offshore production industry are described. The effects on the increasing safety awareness of the industry are discussed. In particular, references to the implications of the HSE guidelines and emerging international standards with respect to design, validation and trainin... View full abstract»

    The article is concerned with the programming of distributed memory systems consisting of an interconnected network of processors and their associated local memory. It outlines typical characteristics of such systems and discusses the language approaches used for their programming. This is followed by an examination of High Performance Fortran that has been proposed as a basis for programming dist... View full abstract»

  • Integrated CAD/CAE/CAM system for injection moulding

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):277 - 279

    An integrated CAD/CAE/CAM system, HSC-1.1, is described. At the CAD/CAE stage the drawings of injection moulded parts can be transformed into the drawings of the mould parts interactively and, according to the user's needs, the mechanical check, runner balance analysis, flow simulation and cooling simulation can be carried out. NC tapes for wire cutting or milling machine tools can be generated at... View full abstract»

  • Cerberus: a laser interlock system using Arcnet

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):281 - 288
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (790 KB)

    High-power laser installations require complex and flexible safety interlock systems, frequently having to work in an environment with high levels of EMI. Traditionally, relays and timers have been employed to provide the interlock logic but this puts restraints on the level of sophistication that can be reasonably achieved. It was decided, therefore, to base the system on distributed microprocess... View full abstract»

  • Network-based concurrent design environment for distributed-based CAD

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):253 - 260

    Microcomputer-based computer-aided design (micro-CAD) systems, today, generally do not have adequate facilities for managing team-based design projects. This severely limits their effectiveness for complex projects involving several designers working concurrently, when compared to their engineering workstation-based counterparts. The authors describe the development of a concurrent design environm... View full abstract»

    For part 2, see ibid., October 1993. System dynamics is a methodology for modelling and redesign of manufacturing, business, and similar systems which are part man, part machine. Some management consultants make extensive use of system dynamics, whilst others do not. Why is this so, and is it primarily an educational problem? The author describes the methodology, traces its history, and shows how ... View full abstract»
