The efficient and early inclusion of quality in the Digital Tapestry is changing the way Lockheed Martin’s Space Systems does business. We are creating a seamless link between engineering, production and the supply chain. Using virtual design tools, we use the same 3-D information from concept to cosmos, making a faster and more affordable life cycle.
At least four million workers go to work each day in damaging noise, 10 million people in the U.S. have a noise-related hearing loss, and 22 million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise each year.
Traditionally, materials testing has been conducted with a device attached to the specimen’s surface to measure the strain. These devices, called extensometers, use very accurate strain gages inside or optical scales.
