The focus of the current investigation is to study the influence of particles’ shape
on segregation of bi-disperse mixture of particles in a rotating drum. The effects
of various particle parameters such as shape and size ratio are investigated. The
results show the shape of both coarse and fine particles influence mixing. For the
coarse particles, decreasing trend of extent of radial segregation as follows: sphere >
oblate > prolate > elongated-needle (experimental).
There are few things more fun than an Electric Dirt Bike, using Altair solutions, the ELISAVA student team improved their motorcycle’s parts and created a lighter, more efficient design. The team also optimized complex assemblies while ensuring maximum performance, comfort, and safety. The optimization of the “Dayna EVO” frame to achieve an optimal package for an electric powertrain also shows that electrification can save costs.

Abstract – The accuracy of the hybrid method is validated by showing that the computed solutions of three trees are in good agreement with those solved from FEKO. Next the hybrid method is used for Monte Carlo simulations of forest stands with up to 30 trees. The dependences of the solutions on tree heights and tree densities are illustrated. The results show that the full-wave based transmissivities are much larger than those obtained from the radiative transfer equation (RTE) model.
The 1 DOF Copter has been designed to simplify the intelligent control strategy of flight systems, flight dynamics and enables users to experience the fundamental concepts of quadcopters, rockets, hovercrafts, and underwater vehicles. This ready to use courseware enables students to understand the main topics of control engineering such as system modelling, linear control system design and simulation with the help of Altair Activate and Altair Inspire Motion.
