“New Innovations in product development using simulation.
Examples will be in medical devices and heavy machinery.”
Masters in Mechanical Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Applications Engineer, ANSYS, Inc.
ANSYS develops, markets and supports engineering simulation software used to foresee how product designs will behave and how manufacturing processes will operate in real-world environments. We continually advance simulation solutions by, first, developing or acquiring the very best technology; then integrating it into a unified and customizable simulation platform that allows engineers to efficiently perform complex simulations involving the interaction of multiple physics; and, finally, providing system services to manage simulation processes and data — all so engineers and product developers can spend more time designing and improving products and less time using software and searching for data.

Thursday, 17 May 2012, David Collins present Reaching for Zero G’s. The line in Toy Story was “To infinity and beyond” and this presentation will take you on a levitating romp through the physics and reality of taking a ride at zero g’s and getting back in time for dinner. Call it “air time” or “off-the-seat”, it all boils down to physics. We are going to look at the realities and the challenges of taking a rider to zero g’s. How close have we come to making this objective a reality? What machines will get us to that point? The mystery will be resolved and the fun will begin.
About the Speaker
From ENIAC to BIZMAC to EDVAC, David cut his teeth on the frontiers of computer hardware. The next step was to apply some of the newly emerging technology of computers to designing the Flight-Sequencer / Controller to control the booster that was to put the Ranger Spacecraft into orbit around the moon. David was part of the team that developed new ECM systems and Decoy and Deception systems for tactical applications in the air and on the ground.
After nearly a quarter of a century David took a giant leap into development of large, commercial solar energy systems and pioneered early practical applications of solar energy. Not satisfied with getting into hot water, David took a giant leap into the manufacture of commercial laser systems for welding, drilling
An invitation to join Disney Imagineering set David on course for the next quarter of am century. His adventures in Amusement Ride Engineering took him to the forefront of Entertainment Motion Simulator technology. Although David is still very active in the design, development, commissioning and inspection of amusement rides he still gets a chance to dip back into aerospace. He has done work on technology maturation studies for UAVs and evaluation of Autonomous Aerial Refueling of UAVs. Right now David is having a lot of fun working with the development of new rides and attractions. He says “one of these days I will figure out what to do when I grow up. Right now I am having too much fun”.

MTTS hosts IEEE Fellow Dr. Arun K. Bhattacharyya Wed 16 May 2012 at Ciao Wireless to present “Efficient Shaped Beam Synthesis in Phased Arrays and Reflectors”.
Shaped beam array synthesis invites considerable attentions because arrays offer the highly desirable “in-orbit reconfigurability” for communication and broadcasting satellites. This talk presents an overview of commonly used beam shaping algorithms, followed by the Projection Matrix Method of synthesis. The Projection Matrix method relies on orthogonal projection of the desired far field intensity vector onto the space spanned by the far field intensity vectors of the array elements. The method is employed successfully for a reflector surface synthesis and is shown to be several times faster than the gradient search method commonly used for beam synthesis. Numerical results for array and shaped reflector syntheses are shown and advantages are discussed. High efficiency horns as an array element will also be reviewed.
About the Speaker
Arun K. Bhattacharyya received his B.Eng. degree in electronics and telecommunication engineering from Bengal Engineering College, University of Calcutta in 1980, and the M.Tech. and Ph.D. degrees from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India, in 1982 and 1985, respectively. At the University of Manitoba, Canada, Arun was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the electrical engineering department. At Til-Tek Limited, Ontario, Canada Arun was a senior antenna engineer. At the University of Saskatchewan, Arun started as an assistant professor of in the EE Dept, later being promoted to associate professor rank in 1990.
In 1991, he joined Boeing Satellite Systems (formerly Hughes Space & Comm) as a senior staff engineer, and then to scientist, senior scientist, and Technical Fellow of Boeing in 2002. In 2003 he joined NG Space Technology group as a staff scientist, senior grade, later becoming a Distinguished Engineer which is a rare and honored recognition. Author of “Electromagnetic Fields in Multilayered Structures-Theory and Applications”, Artech House, Norwood, MA, 1994 and “Phased Array Antennas, Floquet Analysis, Synthesis, BFNs and Active Array Systems”, Hoboken, Wiley, 2006., as well as over 95 technical papers, 4 book-chapters and 15 issued patents.
Dr. Bhattacharyya became a Fellow of IEEE in 2002. He is a recipient of the 1996 Hughes Technical Excellence Award, 2002 Boeing Special Invention Award for his invention of High Efficiency horns, 2003 Boeing Satellite Systems Patent Awards and 2005 Tim Hannemann Annual Quality Award, NG Space Tech.
