Ford Launches Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engines
Ford kicked off production of dedicated hydrogen fueled V-10 engines, making it the first automaker in the world to do so. The supercharged 6.8-liter V-10 engine will power Ford's E-450 hydrogen fueled shuttle buses. The buses are scheduled to be delivered to fleet customers later this year, first in Florida and then in other locations across North America. Hydrogen internal combustion engine technology represents an important step toward enabling hydrogen to become a viable motor fuel. Ford's first hydrogen internal combustion engine demonstration vehicle, released in 2001, was based on a lightweight aluminum sedan body, which also was used in the development of hydrogen fuel cell technology. Additionally, the company has a fleet of 30 hydrogen powered Focus fuel cell vehicles on the road as part of a worldwide, seven-city program to conduct real world testing of fuel cell technology. The 30-car fleet has accumulated more than 240,000 miles since its inception.

Noran Engineering Partners With SolidWorks
Noran Engineering Inc. (NEi) announced that it has reached a licensing agreement with SolidWorks Corp. for the use of its solid modeling engine. The modeling engine will underlie a CAD-neutral, Nastran engineering analysis and simulation software product called NEi FEA that is created specifically for individual design engineers who require Nastran-based FEA. The significance of the NEi FEA software product is the pairing of a CAD-independent modeler with Nastran FEA solvers. The combination of a SolidWorks geometry engine and Nastran is a first in the industry and extends the market for professional-level Nastran FEA software.

    I'm confused. Wasn't this announced a couple years ago? It isn't a win, yet the announcement is worded to give that impression. And if TC is being used on all future programs, but not on the 787, how is that "all" future programs?
    Good spin by the UGS flacks.
