Dassault Systemes To Acquire ABAQUS For Creating Realistic 3D Simulation

ABAQUS Agrees To Be Acquired By Dassault Systemes
(See related Lead Story above) ABAQUS Inc. announced that it has entered into an agreement to be acquired by Dassault Systemes. Under the agreement, and subject to the satisfaction of certain customary conditions and approval by the regulatory and merger control authorities, especially in the USA and in Germany, Dassault Systemes will acquire 100% ownership of ABAQUS in a cash transaction. The transaction has received the unanimous support of ABAQUS's owners and management team and, subject to the receipt of required regulatory approvals, is expected to be completed by the end of Q3 2005.

Lattice3D Releases Enhancements For Leading 3D Publishing Applications
Lattice3D announced the release of enhanced versions of its 3D Publishing applications that allow manufacturers to use, share, and repurpose 3D data across the enterprise. The products, named Lattice3D Embed, Lattice3D Composer, and Lattice3D Publisher, have undergone enhancements to further improve the use of 3D data in business processes. The latest versions add new functionality and continue to improve ease of use for downstream users. Specific attention was placed on the standards-based extensibility and modular platforms.

JM Consult Selects SolidWorks To Design Heavy-Duty Machinery For Eco-Friendly Oil Drilling
JM Consult (JMC), Norway's leader in coiled-tubing surface equipment and services, is standardizing on SolidWorks to design and analyze its specialized heavy-duty oil exploration equipment. JMC's coiled-tubing drilling employs a hose-like device rather than pipes to drill well holes. It can be quicker, cheaper, safer, quieter, more flexible, and more environmentally friendly than traditional derrick-based, pipe-driven drilling methods. Coiled-tubing systems are also valuable for repairing and modifying oil wells under pressure, a process called snubbing.

Dreams Are the Road To Space For NASA Aerospace Engineer
Rosa Obregon didn't realize it at the time, but the road from Monterrey, Mexico to Corpus Christi, Texas was the first leg of a long journey leading to NASA's Stennis Space Center (SSC) in Mississippi. Always interested in space, the 22-year-old aerospace technologist has gained hands-on experience in SSC's E-Complex, where she was involved in a hybrid rocket motor test program. She was also one of five test conductors for the External Tank Foam Test (ETFT) Project. The ETFT team simulated Florida weather conditions typical of Space Shuttle launch days to see what kinds of ice and frost formed on the tank's foam insulation. Obregon is working on another NASA team testing hybrid motors. She hopes to be a test conductor for part of the series.
