Why Direct Drive?

To understand these benefits, we start with the basic concept of direct drive whereby the force of a motor is directly applied to a mechanism without any intermediate drive train such as a gearbox or toothed belt etc. The core working principles of direct drive motor technology is in essence based on the right hand rule of electromagnetism, whereby a current moving through a wound coil creates a magnetic field.

HPC Trends - Why the CFD Community Must Be 'Proactive' Not Reactive

In this article, we look at ways in which the world of HPC (High-performance computing) is approaching the latest disruptions and trends, and how the world of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) must match this proactive rather than reactive stance.
