Automation in the Virtual Testing of Mechanical Systems by Ole Ivar Sivertsen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Automation in the Virtual Testing of Mechanical Systems: Theories and Implementation Techniques provides a practical understanding of Knowledge-Based Engineering (KBE), an approach that is driving automation in engineering. Companies are using the technology to automate engineering tasks, achieving gains in output, and saving time. This book will be the main source of information available for implementing KBE systems, integrating KBE with the finite element methods, and showing how KBE is used to automate engineering and analysis of mechanical systems. The process of combining KBE with optimization techniques is explored, and the use of software tools is presented in detail.
