HyperSizer v6.2 structural sizing and analysis software from Collier Research improves design and manufacturability of composites and metals. Used widely in the spacecraft and aviation industries, the software includes new modeling capabilities for airframe wing box designs, along with laminate zone and ply-count optimization enhancements to improve manufacturing efficiency. The tool targets weight while serving as an independent and neutral data exchange hub for CAD, FEA, and composite software packages. It iterates with FEA solvers, calculates margins of safety, validates failure predictions with test data, and sequences composite laminates for fabrication—avoiding weight growth as designs mature. It works from preliminary design through flight certification.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
