Finite Element Analysis In Aircraft Structure Design
This session will follow a very busy day for an Aerospace Structures Engineer as he transforms the latest CAD releases and loads drop into new Finite Element models for the Stress, Fatigue & Fracture, and Dynamics groups to analyze and post process. There will be challenges to overcome in geometry cleanup, meshing for purpose, assembly meshing, analyzing, and post-processing, but all part of the product development process of turning ideas into airplanes! The primary target audience for this presentation is for the Universities.
Thermal Analysis Challenges in Aerospace Industry
Some of the most difficult thermal problems occur in the aerospace industry. These include the thermal design of a spacecraft in Earth orbit or flying to another planet, cooling an aircraft’s high powered avionics, anti-icing on airplane wings and engine nacelles and predicting solar heating loads on missiles or aircraft baking in the sun. This webinar will focus on using the advanced thermal solver Sinda and the model builder Patran to create thermal models to solve the thermal issues typically found in aerospace industries.
Analysis of Cold Roll Formed Products and Processes
In the cold roll forming process, metal strip is passed through a consecutive series of forming rolls to gradually shape the metal into the desired profile. Simulation tools help analyze the process virtually, even before the tools are manufactured. The webinar will include examples of simulation used within the cold roll forming industry.
