Keynote by Professor Michael Kokkolaras

Keynote by Professor Michael Kokkolaras: The supporting role of numerical optimization for decision-making in simulation-based engineering design When: 10:00 Monday 22nd October 2018 Where: J1610 Description: Computational modeling has enabled accelerated the assessment of engineering design alternatives. At the same time, the increasing complexity of such models and the required multidisciplinary analyses has maintained, if […]

The decision theater, transforming data into knowledge in conceptual design

One success factor in engineering design is the ability to make effective and risk-managed decisions in a timely manner. Rarely is a single person sufficient to resolve today’s complex, connected issues. Rather, a group of stakeholders possessing required expert knowledge needs to be enrolled as these issues normally requires a wide variety of expert competences, […]

Data-driven modelling in the era of Industry 4.0: A case study of friction modelling in sheet metal forming simulations

ABSTRACT With growing demands on quality of produced parts, concepts like zero-defect manufacturing are gaining increasing importance. As one of the means to achieve this, industries strive to attain the ability to control product/process parameters through connected manufacturing technologies and model-based control systems that utilize process/machine data for predicting optimum system conditions without human intervention.

Augment skills and knowledge of engineering students through design-build-test projects

The engineer of the 21st century is expected to possess a broad range of skills and abilities. Besides more traditional technical knowledge and engineering skills, interpersonal skills, critical thinking, creativity, and design makes its way into the curriculum of our engineering education. Our underlying pedagogical approach to teaching design is based on constructivism. Which basically […]

Samverkande robotar utvecklade av samarbetande ingenjörsteam

Studenterna i årskurs två har under vårterminen jobbat med en mekatronisk utmaning där uppgiften var att konstruera, bygga och programmera en autonom robot. Årets utmaning i projektkursen MT1458 fokuserade på samarbete, roboten skulle lösa en given uppgift så bra som möjligt genom att samarbeta med en robot konstruerad av en annan grupp studenter. En viktig […]

Simulation-driven design, Projects 2017

Modelling and simulation is today a natural part of engineering design in businesses of all types and sizes. However, transition from simulation as primary a tool for verifying solutions that are already decided upon towards use of simulation to stimulate creation of new concepts and provide guidance towards more optimized designs, especially in early development […]

Deltagarrekord på årets Robothon

Under höstlovet passade vi återigen på att tillsammans med Molybden och Hyper Island arrangera ett Robothon för ungdomar i kommunen, det 5’e i ordningen i denna konstellationen. Årets evenemang var fullbokat, 40 ungdomar deltog under dagen (nytt deltagarrekord) i Hyper Islands kreativa lokaler. Från vårt Makerspace tog vi med oss Lego Mindstorms i drivor för att ungdomarna skulle kunna […]

Tillverkning och övervakning på distans i Makerspace

I Makerspace, vårt lab för idégenerering och prototyputveckling, har vi bland annat ett antal 3d-skrivare. Även om tekniken utvecklas snabbt är det tyvärr inte ovanligt att utskrifter, i synnerhet större och mer komplexa geometrier, misslyckas. I ett försök att öka nyttjandegrad och tillförlitlighet har vi kopplat upp några av våra skrivare på nätet, IoT in […]

New course: MT2549 Simulation-driven design

This autumn we’ll offer a new course for our master students, Simulation-driven design. In a simulation-driven design (SDD) process, decisions related to the behavior and the performance of the design are significantly supported by computer-based product modelling and simulation. Rather than just verifying solutions that are already decided upon, SDD support dialogues with customers, stimulate […]

Value-driven simulation: thinking together through simulation in early engineering design

ABSTRACT The topic of ‘design for value’ has lately attracted a great deal of attention within the engineering design community. ‘Predicting’ the value of a future solution is however difficult, especially in early design phases. Modelling and simulation is believed to be able to support this challenging task. A simulation process for value-driven engineering design […]
