Notes from the NAFEMS North American Summit
The NAFEMS North American Summit meeting was held in Hampton, VA a week or so ago (10/29-31 to be exact). Unfortunately, based on informal polling at many user groups and customer events, I'm sure that many of you are asking,...

Wisconsin/Illinois COSMOS User Group
Attended the Fall meeting of the Wisconsin/Illinois COSMOS UG today... Great turnout and discussions! Two points warrant sharing... First, after an excellent, albeit uber technical, presentation on nonlinear from one of the local VAR AEs, the discussion turned to keeping...

Who's the boss?
After reviewing the role of management in the design analysis process, I was asked, “You mentioned that a company's management team is often the "block" for the successful implementation of COSMOSWorks. In what way? Do they not want to pay...

It's Your Choice...
On a recent COSMOS Companion Real-World Analysis webcast, I showed a COSMOSWorks user how to speed up a several hour static solution to 26 seconds (!) with some intuitive simplification techniques. The results were the same or even better since...

"We've made 'contact'...
In preparing a text for NAFEMS (www.nafems.org) on analysis for design engineers, I made the decision to include a discussion of contact conditions (natural part-part interactions) in a chapter on boundary conditions. Since contact requires a nonlinear solution, it is...

What do we really know?
One of my oldest worn out sayings, “Vince-isms” as my friend Brian King, the chairman of the Illinois/Wisconsin COSMOS User Group calls them, is that engineers, especially ones utilizing analysis techniques, “need to learn to differentiate what they know from...

Where were you 5 years ago?
It's hard to believe it has been 5 years since the World Trade Ctr disaster. Like many of you, I have those images burned into my memory and as I watched specials and commemorations over the weekend, those images were...

"...the more they stay the same."
I was recently referred to Rachael Dalton-Taggart's blog on PR for the CAE Industry, and more specifically, her comments on CAE ads from 1993. She stated that while the ads looks slicker, the message is still the same. In 1993,...

Can you read the writing on the 'ball"?
Stop me if you’ve heard this one… “Hey…what does the clock say?” “It doesn’t say anything, you have to read it!” This old joke has special meaning in our household as our oldest, the college bound freshman, never quite made...
