The Autodesk(r) CFD 2017 Essentials student guide instructs students in the use of the Autodesk(r) CFD software. The software provides computational fluid dynamics and thermal simulation tools to predict product performance, optimize designs, and validate product behavior before manufacturing. Through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum, students acquire the knowledge required to work in the Autodesk CFD environment to setup and conduct thermal and flow analyses on part and assembly models. Exercises are provided that cover electronic cooling, flow control, and AEC type models. Topics Covered Open and navigate the Autodesk CFD environment to conduct flow and thermal analyses on part and assembly models. Use the Model Assessment Toolkit to investigate the suitability of model geometry for analysis, and use Autodesk(r) SimStudio Tools to make required changes to the CAD geometry. Create internal and external fluid volumes. Setup analyses by applying appropriate materials, boundary conditions and mesh settings. Refine mesh to obtain a proper solution. Apply appropriate solver settings to run your analyses and converge to an acceptable solution. Use the visualization tools to compare summary images, summary values, and summary plots of your analyses to compare design and scenario results of an Autodesk CFD analysis. Conduct a final validation of your solution by running through a validation checklist. Prerequisites This student guide assumes that a student has some Flow and Thermal analysis knowledge and can interpret results. The main goal of this student guide is to teach a user that is new to the Autodesk CFD software how to navigate the interface to successfully analyze a model. This student guide was written using the 20160317 build of the Autodesk CFD 2017 software. The software user-interface and workflow may vary if newer versions of the software are being used. The exercises were completed using the advanced solver license. Instructions are provided to complete this class with a basic solver license.

This book helps decision makers grasp the importance, and applicability to business, of the new technologies and extended connectivity of systems that underlie what is becoming known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution: technologies and systems such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, 3D printing, the internet of things, virtual and augmented reality, big data and mobile networks. The WEF, OECD and UN all agree that humanity is on the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As intelligent systems become integrated into every aspect of our lives this revolution will induce cultural and societal change of a magnitude hitherto unforeseen. These technologies challenge the values, customer experience and business propositions that have been the mainstay of almost every business and organization in existence. By redefining and encapsulating new value structures with emerging intelligent technologies, new innovative models are being created, and brought to market. Understanding the potential and impact of these changes will be a fundamental leadership requirement over the coming years. Skilton and Hovsepian provide decision makers with practical, independent and authoritative guidance to help them prepare for the changes we are all likely to witness due to the rapid convergence of technological advances. In short, bite-sized, nuggets, with frameworks supported by a deep set of practical and up-to-the-minute case studies, they shine light on the new business models and enterprise architectures emerging as businesses seek to build strategies to thrive within this brave new world.

Beginning AutoCAD 2006 is a course based on learning and practising the essentials of 2D drawing using AutoCAD. Bob McFarlane's hands-on approach is uniquely suited to independent learning and use on courses. The focus on 2D drawing in one book ensures the reader gets a thorough grounding in the subject, with a greater depth of coverage than tends to be available from general introductions to AutoCAD. As a result, this book provides a true, step-by-step, detailed exploration of the AutoCAD functions required at each stage of producing a 2D drawing - an approach often not found in the many software reference guides available. The emphasis on learning through doing makes this book ideal for anyone involved in engineering, construction or architecture - where the focus is on productivity and practical skills. The author has also matched the coverage to the requirements of City and Guilds, Edexcel (BTEC) and SQA syllabuses. New features in AutoCAD 2006 are covered in this book including: DYN (dynamic input showing coordinate position and lengths - an important new feature of the latest AutoCAD software), as well as new commands in the Modify and Dimension tool set. The result is a useful refresher course for anyone using AutoCAD at this level, and those upgrading to the new software release. The course is also designed to be fully relevant to anyone using other recent releases, including AutoCAD 2005. * A complete course on 2D design with AutoCAD in one book - ideal for independent learning * Exercises aid student learning and self assessment * Focus on 2D drawing provides in-depth coverage to this key introductory-level use of AutoCAD

We are the first species with the ability to leave planet Earth and expand the horizons of existence into the infinite realm of the universe. Humanity has been working, learning and building toward this accomplishment throughout history. Those who live and work in space will be no different from their predecessors who left ancient homelands to venture into the unknown wilderness. But to travel and work in space, one must not only know the physical characteristics of the space environment, but also something about the human beings involved. Living in Space explains: -Technology necessary for staying happy, healthy and alive in space. - Effects of acceleration on the human body - The long term affects of living in zero-g conditions - The most harmful forms of ionizing radiation for humans - Nutrition and Sanitation - Basic problems of working in space. The people who go into space to live and work are setting the foundation for humanity’s future.
