Designing for optimum composite performance

United Kingdom, Bristol

The fiercely competitive nature of the global aerospace industry places increasing pressure on OEMs and their tier suppliers to deliver projects at lower overall cost. Time to market, environmental pressures and the move from metallic to composite structures represent just a small selection of challenges facing the UK aerospace market.

For over ten years, Altair in collaboration with its industry partners, have been developing a design process specifically aimed at tackling composite design challenges. Altair’s enterprise computer aided engineering (CAE) suite, HyperWorks, is now established as a leading virtual toolbox for composite design applications incorporating pre and post-processing capabilities, solvers and advanced optimisation technologies specifically developed to address the challenges of composite materials.

At the event, a selection of aerospace companies will present practical examples of how they have applied the latest virtual design technologies to meet their competitive challenges. They will show firsthand how virtual technology can be used to increase development productivity, bringing innovative and profitable products to market faster than ever before.

The Seminar will Cover:

  • Maximising Design Productivity - Shorten the product development process by finding the fastest route from CAD geometry to CAE models in an efficient, solver neutral environment.
  • Enhancing Value Added Services - Experience design best practice examples using innovative design tools which can automatically create lightweight design solutions.
  • Migrating to Composite Materials - The inherant properties of composite materials present new opportunities to aerospace engineers but also bring new design challenges. See how these are being overcome with innovative tried and tested design processes.

This seminar is ideally suited to engineering and financial decision makers focused on delivering profitable product design and innovative solutions within time sensitive engineering programmes.

This event will take place on May 7th in Bristol, United Kingdom.
