Branch Technology

On 20 September 2015, my new employer, 3-D printing company Branch Technology, revealed its latest build at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA). The 18-foot-tall sculpture was featured as part of MODA’s Designers, Makers, Users: 3D Printing the Future exhibition . Designed by renowned architect Keith Kaseman, co-designer of the Pentagon’s 9-11 Memorial, the sculpture TN-01 shows what is possible when 3-D printing is applied at architectural scale.

Application By Pablo Filgueira Rodeiro,
Senior Manager Simulation-Based Design,
Whirlpool Corporation, São Paulo, Brazil

The design of gas burners for cooktops is challenging because of the many design parameters involved. The geometry of the port where the flame is produced, the injectors that provide gas and air to the ports, and the grates that support the ports ― as well as the relationship between the ports and the metal surface of the appliance ― all play roles in determining how well a burner will perform.

Application Professor Kataro Santo and his team at Kogakuin University use SC/Tetra to deepen the understanding of fluid machinery such as synthetic jets, heat pumps, and axial fans.

A synthetic jet uses vibration to produce vortex pairs to generate a flow similar to the jet engine. The benefit of a synthetic jet is device miniaturization. One of his essential research activities is the study of a speaker-driven synthetic jets.

Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Johns Hopkins engineers have devised a computer model to unravel the wicked wind conditions that plague the world’s greatest golfers at a course that hosts one of the sport’s most storied tournaments, The Masters, in Augusta, Ga.

Rajat Mittal, an aerodynamics expert and professor of mechanical engineering in Johns Hopkins’ Whiting School of Engineering, who also describes himself as a recreational golfer, developed this system with Neda Yaghoobian, a postdoctoral visiting scholar on his lab team.
