Webinar popularity results in more opportunities for engineers

The popularity of HBM’s series of free on-line webinars has led to a further three webinars being made available on successive days in the latter part of June. The first of the latest webinars takes place on Wednesday, 25 June, and Thomas Markwitz, Product and Application Manager will look at recent developments in catman®, HBM’s cutting edge data acquisition software.

The webinar will explore the many new features and functions of version 3.5 of the software which include enhanced post process functionality and an integrated TEDS editor for the sensor database.

The webinar will also look at the various new modules that form part of HBM’s innovative QuantumX data acquisition system and investigate the different possibilities these open to users in their daily work. The webinar will answer a number of frequently asked questions on the software and provide solutions to specific application challenges.

This will be followed on Thursday, 26 June, 2014 by an in-depth look at the challenges posed in gathering data by investigating how engineers can learn to distinguish inadequate or corrupt engineering data before using it for durability and performance analysis.

Virrinder Kumar, Application Engineer at HBM nCode will present the webinar that recognises the difficulties engineers face in obtaining a reliable set of data. Kumar notes, “Collecting good time series data is not a trivial task”.

The webinar will look at some of the causes and examples of bad data as well as determining what it is that separates good data from bad data. Ways of recognizing bad data will be explored and best testing and analysis practices will be proposed to ensure that the best possible engineering decisions are made.

Finally on Friday, 27 June, Alessio Benincasa, Sales & Product Manager at SINT Technology, will present a webinar on residual stress analysis using the hole drilling method. The webinar will show how the strength behaviour of components is influenced by residual stresses that exist without any visible signs showing.

The webinar investigates the use of the high-speed hole drilling method for residual stress analysis so as to determine existing stresses present in any component so that they can be properly accounted for in dimensioning components. HBM has developed a strain gauge rosette specifically for the purpose of recording strain variations resulting from the incremental creation of the bore in the measurement object.

In addition the webinar will cover the different applications where residual stress analysis is recommended along with tips and tricks on residual stress analysis and the hole drilling method.
