How to Design an Industrial Transformer

Transformers are critical parts of energy-distribution systems throughout the industrial sector. They ensure the right amount of power reaches the load relative to the full capacity of the supply infrastructure.

Reasons Manufacturers Should Use CAD Automation

Designers have used CAD for decades, and the next step involves automation, which leaves room for CAD drawings to become even more beneficial for a manufacturer. Automating this process encapsulates things like cloud connectivity, industry 4.0 developments, and artificial intelligence.

How Is Machine Learning Changing Civil Engineering?

While machine learning is an incredibly powerful tool, in some industries it’s still in a developmental stage. In other words, we are still exploring applications for its use and refining how that’s done. Machine learning for engineers and civil engineering is one such field. Even now, it’s clear that it’s going to have a huge impact.

Why Engineering Consultants Are Crucial for Modern Design

When companies embark on complex or difficult engineering projects, they often turn to subject matter experts with deep knowledge of a particular field — like chemical, geotechnical or civil engineering.

5 keys to designing earthquake-resistant buildings

When professionals design and construct buildings, they assess how to reduce risks. Following the applicable codes is one way to do that. Besides the international building codes that regulate the design, construction, alteration, and maintenance of new commercial and residential buildings, there are seismic codes.

How to Design a Roundabout for Improved Traffic Flow and Safety

Roundabouts are becoming increasingly popular across the country—and for good reason. Their advantages are well-documented. Communities concerned about traffic safety or congestion can often make roads safer and quicker to navigate by implementing a roundabout.

How the Digital Twin Is Reshaping Engineering

Manufacturing professionals were among the first adopters of digital twins. With the technology, engineers can see highly detailed, virtual versions of real-life assets, such as facilities and pieces of equipment. They can see the effects of changes before implementing them. Now many industries have embraced digital twins.
