Carnegie Mellon University Announces Executive Changes, with Effect from July 1, 2016

T.D. Jacobsen has been appointed director and principal research scientist at Carnegie Mellon University's Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, effective July 1. He succeeds Robert Kiger, who is retiring after serving as director since 1977. Jacobsen joined the Hunt Institute staff in 1979 and has been assistant director since 1981. He is an authority on the systematics of the native North American species of the genus Allium (onions and their relatives) and his writings on the systematics and toxicology of poisonous plants have been published extensively. His research includes the neotypification (establishing a new type specimen) of several species of the genus Allium. In addition to his research and administrative duties, Jacobsen, along with Kiger, has taught organismic botany in the Department of Biological Sciences.

ANSYS and Carnegie Mellon University Partner to Drive the Next Industrial Revolution in Making Physical Products

Future Carnegie Mellon University engineers will design new innovative products more efficiently and effectively, thanks in part to a collaboration with ANSYS. The partnership brings together two leaders in engineering, computer science and simulation technologies to impact the future of engineering education and research. Manufacturing and product innovation is undergoing a revolution, commonly referred to as Industry 4.0, similar to the digital revolution for virtual products. ANSYS and Carnegie Mellon want to boost engineers' use of simulation so as to enable unparalleled opportunities for exploration of many more materials and designs at the beginning of the development process. As part of the partnership, a new building on the university's campus will allow faculty, students, ANSYS researchers and other corporate partners to interact in a large computer-supported collaboration space. The building will also provide a spacious maker facility where students will have access to physics-based simulation tools and cutting-edge technologies for making, assembling and testing their designs. The shared goal is to build innovative approaches and tools that will result in shorter product development cycles and final products that are better quality and quicker to manufacture. All Carnegie Mellon students will also have access to the ANSYS solution portfolio, enabling them to explore, simulate and analyze solutions for real-world engineering challenges, either remotely on their laptops or within the collaboration space. The partnership seeks a fundamental shift from the traditional "build and break" method where engineers build product prototypes and test them to identify design flaws. If employed at all, today's computational simulations typically come at the end of the traditional process to validate the design. Simulation-driven product development flips the process by virtually exploring the properties of a plethora of design options up front, before committing to specific material and design choices. The benefit of physics-based computational tools is that they can test millions of permutations of designs, materials, flows and shapes to find the optimal design before the engineer needs to build a single physical prototype. Not only will this new approach unleash the next wave of innovative physical products, but it is a necessity to make designs more energy-efficient and sustainable. Carnegie Mellon and ANSYS are partnering to do exactly this—educate the next generation of engineers and enable them to build the products of tomorrow. ANSYS' research expertise intersects broadly with Carnegie Mellon's, making it an ideal collaboration that will touch diverse fields such as autonomous vehicles, additive manufacturing, biomedical devices, sustainability of physical products and connected products.
