New Frontier Technologies Pty Ltd. (Canberra, Australia), a startup company that provides bespoke design, manufacture and 3D evaluation of carbon fiber composites and other advanced materials, has developed a capability for digital twinning of composites for high-resolution quality characterization and high-fidelity performance simulation.
As the use of virtual engineering environments and development of digital certification increases in sectors that rely on composite materials and structures, the demand for high-resolution 3D datasets for quality characterization and performance evaluation will also increase, the company reports. New Frontier Technologies’ 3D digital twinning capability is based on X-ray computed tomography (CT) to image and analyze — at micron resolution — critical quality characteristics of composites such as void size and distribution, and fiber orientation. A finite element mesh that captures these characteristics is then generated for high-fidelity simulation. This enables performance evaluation of the as-manufactured component rather than an idealized model.
