With E-lementary, the NAFEMS team aimed to create a digest of articles about Simulation Analysis Community that could be of interest to engineers, managers and others in keeping up-to-date with the industry.
New modeling and visualization system for hydroelectricturbines
UK manufacturer Your Hydro group wins grant to develop hydro turbine simulation system and more precisely to develop a new modeling and visualization system for hydroelectric turbines. The collaboration alsoincludes the Centre for Modeling and Simulation (CFMS) and computational fluid dynamic specialist WIKKI Ltd., who will work together to design what Your Hydro calls a "virtual turbine environment". http://goo.gl/PStEbU
Makai upgrades simulating subsea power software
Makai Ocean Engineering, based in Hawaii, has released an updated version of its planning and simulated subsea power and telecom cable installations software, MakaiPlan Pro. The programme allows the user to perform 3D dynamic simulations of a submarine cable installation. Read more about the upgrade here: http://goo.gl/PcROrr
Could the way sleep apnea is treated be changed by Computational tools?
Jeff Eldredge, a professor at UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science has been working on developing a computational model of a human airway to help surgeons decide how best to treat sleep apnea.
A Hands-on Introduction to Engineering Simulations
If you know somebody interested or that actually should be interested in Simulation, this is the time to take an online at Cornell University. The course is tought by Rajesh Bhaskaran, senior lecturer in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Swanson Director of Engineering Simulation and has for aim the democratization of simulation. In case you have not heard it enough from us! http://goo.gl/XMsbV3

Song selection of the day:
Although the song seems a little bit gloomy, with all the advances we brought out today, we have hope in engineering and hope in the future!
