All in Design Engineering
Nature’s ability to evolve through natural selection, genetic drift, and other mechanisms has become an inspiration to modern (and historic) design choices. This process of designing based on natures problem solving through evolution has been given the name – biomimicry.
Whether you’re a professional, a student, a DIYer, or simply trying to learn the tools used by professional engineers and scientists, you know the limiting factor is expensive software. Below are the most popular and professionally built open sourced projects and software available as alternatives to engineering software used in the professional world.
Second Law of Thermodynamics: Heat naturally flows from high temperature to low temperature but not the other way around; Disorder, or entropy, generation is always positive in a closed system undergoing an irreversible process.
The pressure-volume diagram (abbreviated as the P-V diagram) is a graphical representation of the changes in pressure with respect to volume in a closed system. P-V diagrams are useful for determining the efficiency of a system and/or the work done by or to a system.
First Law of Thermodynamics: The conservation of energy - energy into a closed system must equal energy out of a closed system. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can be changed and transferred.
Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics: If object A is in thermal equilibrium with object B, and object B is in thermal equilibrium with object C, then object C is in thermal equilibrium with object A.
The working directory for the upper level assembly may be isolated from the parts that make it up, therefore, Creo Parametric needs to understand where the parts are. All of this happens inside the configuration editor and saved in the config.pro file.
Modeled welds can be added to a part and assembly file in Creo Parametric, but for communication purposes, adding weld symbols and requirements on an engineering drawing is more important. PTC makes it easy to add weld symbols by providing a suite of pre-generated symbols and an options dialog box to customize the symbol as needed per ANSI or ISO standards.
