In order to reach its goals the team used various tools from Altair‘s HyperWorks software suite. In particular HyperMesh and HyperView for pre- and post-processing as well as OptiStruct and MotionView to optimize the system‘s weight and dynamic behavior. In a first step MotionView was used to obtain the loads on the suspension system and to verify the kinematics of the system. Then HyperMesh was employed to mesh the components and to apply forces and constraints to simulate the most severe stress condition such as braking while cornering, applying vertical, longitudinal and lateral loads.
For the final designed robot, HyperWorks was used for structural analysis to understand whether or
not the robot meets the requirements. The evaluation was performed for the impact force received
when launching a rocket, the impact when landing from the sky and the impact vibration from
the road surface during running. MotionSolve in HyperWorks was extremely useful for practical
industrial education that is linked to CAD design.

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury:
A Leading Cause of Disability and Mortality Traumatic brain injury (TBI) resulting from blunt head impact is a major cause of disability and mortality in the United States. Approximately 2 million TBI cases occur each year. The great majority of these injuries are classified as mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) or concussion. There is increased awareness of sports-related MTBI as an important public health
problem affecting a large number of people despite the use of protective headgear.
Development of World’s Smallest TV Antenna
Television is considered as one of the most important media of communications in Mexico. Several tests conducted in cities like Tijuana, Guadalajara and Mexico City, demonstrated that oftentimes the challenge is the successful transmission of signals to some of the more remote areas, especially indoors.
Typically a Yagi array antenna is used for
TV reception. Yagi antenna provides a directed beam that goes towards the TV tower, permitting a high degree of signal reception. Dr. Tecpoyotl’s team developed an antenna that is miniaturized into a smaller footprint, while at the same time improving the signal stability, compared with other passive antennas.
The TUfast Eco team of Technical University Munich uses simulation and optimization to develop energy-efficient vehicles.
In addition to being very successful at the international Shell Eco-Marathon, the team recently celebrated achieving a new world record for energy efficiency of electrically powered vehicles.
The statute of the TUfast Eco team demands that each year an entirely new vehicle has to be developed. No component of the previous year is allowed to be used for the new competing vehicle. This is to ensure that the technical expertise and development approaches of previous years are used to develop the new vehicle and passed on to the new team.
