Moore’s Law – Another Perspective

Written by
Those who know me will know that I like to speak about the remarkable impact of Moore’s Law. In the words of Don Tappan at Intel, computing has become infinitely fast and vanishingly cheap. What Gordon Moore said, over 50 years ago, was that as you put more transistors on…
Having just arrived in Cleveland, Ohio for CAASE18 (Conference on Advancing Analysis & Simulation in Engineering), I was reminded of the recent COFES meeting where I was struck by the similar propositions of two people I greatly respect. Ken Welch of SIMSOLID talked about how rapid simulation response enables better…
Part of the advantage of my job is I have this blog, and I am allowed to complain. My Andy Rooney moments. I was recently in South Africa, and rented a new Mercedes C-180. Nice car, except, the user interface is a nightmare. The clock was set 18 minutes slow,…
It's an audacious thing to say, that human knowledge is a constraint on our imagination and innovation. I was reminded of this last week in a conversation with Dr. Pedro Marcal. Pedro is the author of MARC, the first nonlinear finite-element code, long since acquired by MSC. Now, at age…

Simulation: Past the Tipping Point?

Written by
It strikes me, that without us really recognizing it, simulation has become more relevant for product development than physical testing. (Please note, I said product development, not product validation.) As innovation in product design and manufacturing methods increase, it has become much more difficult to procure representative and statistically relevant…
