DESIGN, ANALYSIS & SIMULATIONS
Use of advanced CAD/CAE tools for conceptual design, product enginering and manufacturing design. Analysis and simulations are used to analyse design and properties of the composite structures in different sectors specially when assembled structures are considered and determination of characteristics of manufacturing process.
Conceptual Design. product conceptualization, design parameters: geometry, dimensions, preliminary analysis products: load, constraints, etc., materials/manufacturing process selections, final design and development.
Product Engineering. Part Design (CAD), Finite element modeling (FEM), Setting up Model (Loads, BC’s, etc.) Mechanical simulation (Static/Dynamics, Thermal Stress, Fatigue, Damage & Tolerance, Drafting).
Manufacturing engineering. Tooling Design (RTM, VARI, HP-RTM), Preforming tools, Manufacturing composites process simulation: RTM (Pre-heating, Filling, Curing), VARI (Filling, Compressibility, etc.), Forming (Drapability, wrinkles), Distortion (Spring-back, deformation).
