MatSim and accelrys have announced a joint release for predicting properties of nanostructured materials using their respective program packages MesoDyn and Palmyra.
It is possible with this combination of powerful tools to predict the structure of a multitude of complex nanomaterials and to accurately and efficiently estimate their properties. Mechanical, thermal, electrical, magnetic, optical, and transport properties of materials of any morphology with arbitrary complexity can be obtained and stress and strain fields and other property fields can be visualized.
MatSim GmbH of Zurich specialises in the computer-aided materials design of complex materials, and accelrys is a leading supplier of molecular modeling software.
Australian organisations Austrak, Laing O’Rourke and the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) have joined forces to develop polymer composite solutions for bridge transoms in a $10 million project titled Polymer Composite Transoms for Rail Bridge Deck Replacement (CompTrans).
The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) led a Transportation and Defence Fly-In, 25-26 September 2018, during which ACMA members and staff met with more than 75 congressional offices and several key decision makers from federal agencies.
As the rail sector looks to new technologies to enable it to answer sustainability, performance and cost challenges, applications for pultruded composites are set to grow, according to a new report from the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA). Lightweight, high performance, durable composites offer energy efficient solutions with lower environmental impact and reduced through-life costs in rolling stock and rail infrastructure.
