Welcome to our monthly roundup of the best links on the internet about engineering, physics, and computer modeling! This month’s edition is full of interesting videos, articles, and resources to keep you up to date with the world of computer-assisted engineering, and discrete elements methods.
Simulating the Real World
- “Galaxies are luminous islands in the vast ocean of the universe; each contains billions of stars,” Students at Iowa State University developed a computer model to understand how those stars are distributed in galaxies.
- New advances to make computer modeling software better and more affordable will help mid- and small-sized companies keep up with the big ones.
- Thanks to a computer model developed by the University of Wyoming, ecologist can now observe and identify wild animals without bothering them.
- As Parkinson’s disease advances, the treatment may become less and less effective – negative reactions can even start to creep up. A new computer model may help understand and fix what is happening.
- Einstein’s theory of relativity just got way harder to disprove – like, 500 times harder.
News from Coupi
- From sphere importers to contact algorithms to next steps, intern Tristan Craddick lets us know what his experience at Coupi was like – the lessons learned and the challenges he faced.
