The sustainability of engineering materials is an increasingly important consideration in all areas of industry. Light, strong, and resistant to corrosion, composites are often the ideal candidates for producing novel, light-weight structures.
However, designing sustainable, efficient parts and structures has always been a challenge, because of their complexity. The shift by OEMs toward digital twins and traceability is putting new pressure on the composites industry to integrate CAD/CAE data more tightly with as-manufactured data.
Simulation has the power to allow companies to meet this challenge head on, by taking advantage of the growing number of sophisticated numerical tools to predict stiffness and strength, analyse the manufacturing process, and help produce optimal designs for composite components and assemblies.
This NAFEMS seminar will help you understand the issues and how you can use simulation to stay ahead of the game. The seminar will include:
This is an opportunity for you to share your experience in modelling sustainable and efficient materials, and gain confidence in applying cutting edge analysis tools to typical composite simulation tasks.
