Mathematics-Based Modeling of a Hybrid Electric Vehicle
The automotive industry is in transformation. The complexity of the automobile has increased exponentially in the past decades and has triggered a design revolution that stresses detailed modeling and simulation steps prior to committing to metal and plastic. With new generation vehicles deploying hybrid (HEV), fully electric (EV), and fuel cell powerplants, the need for advanced physical modeling solutions is considerably greater due to increasing system complexity.
New Techniques for Electrical Engineering Courses
This webinar introduces new techniques that bring together theory and applications in electrical engineering courses, and how these techniques can be applied to advance research. Whether it is in a freshman circuits class, or a senior level robotics class, these techniques are easy and intuitive enough to be used by undergrads so they can gain greater insight into the nature of physical systems.
Battery Design Innovation: It’s All About the Mathematics
The field of energy storage is extremely active with a constant stream of innovations being deployed to address some major design challenges. At the heart of this activity is the commercial drive to increase energy density (energy stored per unit mass), extend battery life, and improve overall charge/discharge efficiencies in order to reduce unit costs and enhance product reliability. One constant of battery research is the need to consider fundamental physical concepts when designing new batteries.
Advanced Online Testing Solutions in a Freshman Engineering Computation Lab
In this webinar we will illustrate how you can reinforce engineering concepts while effectively testing and assessing students using a combination of programming, modeling and simulation, and advanced testing technologies.
Transforming the Freshman Cornerstone Design Course Through Modeling and Simulation
This webinar presents a detailed case study of the recent McMaster University initiative to enrich its cornerstone course. The key new element is the introduction of a dynamic modeling software package to allow students to analyze and explore the system dynamics, and ultimately the design options, for a real system.
Advanced Physical Modeling Tackles the Complexity of Modern Engineering
This webinar illustrates how engineering researchers are making significant strides in their work with the help of advanced physical modeling technology. It highlights the work of three researchers, and discusses such diverse projects as space rovers, hockey sticks, parallel manipulators, and electric and hybrid-electric vehicle batteries. In this panel discussion lead by Dr. Derek Wright of Maplesoft, learn firsthand how advanced physical modeling and simulation technology can enrich your classroom and accelerate your research.
Educational Techniques for the Next Generation of Engineers
The way we teach undergraduates mathematical and design concepts in engineering modeling has remained unchanged for almost half a century. Industry is undergoing a major transformation and we stand to fall behind in our pedagogy. However, new software is finally emerging that promises to reconcile theory with application and design in industry, research, and ultimately in the classroom.
Challenges and Solutions for Engineering Educators
In this webinar we will illustrate how you can reinforce engineering concepts using a combination of theory, simulation, and hardware and show how the math can be used in a more meaningful way. Education-focused examples of MapleSim will be demonstrated.
Advanced Physical Modeling Revitalizes the Freshmen “Cornerstone” Design Course
Engineering design projects are an important learning tool for first-year engineering students. These projects provide a structured approach to the design process, giving students a solid understanding of how to move from a mere concept to a working model of a system. These projects not only give students the knowledge and skills to produce such outcomes, but also give students confidence in their abilities to complete future projects.
