LMS, recently acquired by Siemens and now a business segment within Siemens PLM Software, announced the latest release of its LMS 3D solutions for real world simulation, LMS Virtual. Lab Rev 12 and SAMCEF Rev 15. Both software releases use innovative technology to simulate real-world behavior for faster, more realistic and easier product design. Every LMS 3D simulation solution can be tailored to precise industry and application requirements in areas such as acoustics and vibration, mechanisms, automotive and aerospace simulation process integration, structural analysis and wind turbine development. The latest releases of the two core LMS 3D simulation software suites, LMS Virtual.Lab and SAMCEF including CAESAM, address several of the industries’ most pressing engineering challenges. Built on more than 30 years of proven solver technology, the LMS Virtual.Lab Motion Real-Time Solver uses a parallel solution approach for multi-core solving. Fast and accurate, the LMS Virtual.Lab Motion Real-Time Solver for full-vehicle driving dynamics complemented by the LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim Real-Time Solver or subsystem modeling lets users handle complex real-time 3D-1D models such as those used in hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) applications and realistic driving simulators. LMS Virtual.Lab Rev 12 places a huge emphasis on usability, including more openness and an efficient-to-use and especially easy-to-customize driving dynamics solution in LMS Virtual
In January 2003 MarineSafety International's Norfolk Center began training in its new Radar/ARPA and ECDIS Labs. The new facilities include a three station Radar and ARPA lab which was purchased from Buffalo Computer Graphics and an 8 station ECDIS lab comprised of networked PC's which can host any one of several ECDIS programs including ECPINS and TRANSAS, among others. This expansion was undertaken to meet emerging U.S. Navy requirements for
In 2006, Aries Propulsion Research Labs (APR Labs) introduced a new method of propulsion technology labeled Omni-Directional Propulsion (ODP). The method was created by designer Chris B. Hewatt and was first published on the United States Patent and Trade Organization (USPTO) Web site as publication 20060230847. APR Labs says that this unique design has been gaining attention in the transportation industry, but could have its greatest impact on the marine industry because it creates movement
The California Maritime Academy, a campus of California State University, is one step closer to having the most advanced training ship in the United States. The campus has been awarded a $215,000 dollar-for-dollar matching challenge grant from the TK Foundation. Every dollar donated in support of the Navigation Lab by a company, foundation or individual will be matched by the TK Foundation. The gift will support Phase 2 of the construction of a Navigation Lab onboard Cal Maritime’s

The Environmental Quality Department (EQD) laboratories at Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock are celebrating 30 successful years of advancing environmental enhancement for ships and submarines. In that time, EQD scientists and engineers have earned more than 23 patents and have installed waste management systems on nearly every ship in today's Navy. Through many name and location changes, the department has maintained a
Transas Marine, in collaboration with local agent Mecys, announced the completion of a complex simulator project for the Korea Coast Guard Academy (KCGA). The real hardware integration and achieved level of realism make this simulator complex truly unique. Within the project, Transas has developed models for bridge and engine room simulators matching the layout of PV3000 and three other Korea Coast Guard vessels. The installed simulators include the Transas full mission engine room
