The Academic society is a special interest group for engineers who lecture or conduct research in third-level institutions or graduate students who aspire to careers in academia.
Its mission is to promote the advancement of academic standards in engineering and facilitate and organise activities for key academic groups. It aims to develop and disseminate a body of knowledge for engineers working within the academic community which will also serve those engineering professionals with an interest in academic topics. Members can benefit from: Networking with colleagues Networking with industry experts Keeping up to date with the latest events, technical presentations and access to research and support material. Attending events, courses, site visits and customised seminars to advance their continuous professional development.
This computational tool can generate an optimal design for a complex fluidic device such as a combustion engine or a hydraulic pump.
Their technique could allow chip manufacturers to produce next-generation transistors based on materials other than silicon.
A method for quickly predicting the forces needed to push objects through soft, granular materials could help engineers drive robots or anchor ships.
Study shows that if autonomous vehicles are widely adopted, hardware efficiency will need to advance rapidly to keep computing-related emissions in check.
Chartered Engineer Brendan Dervan, with more than 40 years of experience in M&E building services, offers three pieces of advice: A/ a good start is half the work; B/ software packages are fine but never lose touch with the fundamental principles of engineering; and C/ always present information for construction in a minimum of three ways, as it helps to identify problems at the design stage rather than discovering them on site during construction.
An unexpected ancient manufacturing strategy may hold the key to designing concrete that lasts for millennia.
