Integrative simulation and optimization workflow for blow moulded plastic parts considering residual stresses and geometry changes due to shrinkage and warpage.
Higher product performance of blow moulded plastic parts with less material consumption and shorter design cycle times. Optimized CAE Workflow for blow moulded articles and therefore reduced development time.
Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) is an established technology to produce complexly shaped composite parts.
A generally applicable, standardized CAE workflow particularly from the view of high-performance composites in structural relevant automotive applications. The CAE chain shall efficiently combine all essential simulation steps and enable an integrated product development considering all relevant manufacturing effects and finally provide an integrated structural optimization over multiple simulation steps.
For Short- and Long-Fibre Reinforced Thermoplastics (SFRT and LFRT) an integrated simulation will be performed. Components for various applications requiring different simulation technologies will be looked at: crash, foamed, fatigue and creep applications.
Lighter products by better exploitation of material capabilities. Increased efficiency in product design process due to increased quality of simulation results and reduced design optimization cycle times.
Establish an integrated simulation and optimization workflow for additive manufactured plastic parts (SLS process) to optimize the building process, the part design and the part function. Ensure first time right production.
An effective compatible interface to communicate between the process simulation, other CAE tools and the printer software. Reduce effort and costs during the product development process. Reduce time to market.
Virtual autoclave manufacturing for commercial aerospace parts. End-to-end simulation for design including material characterization, process simulation, shape optimization due to process-induced deformations and process optimization for thermal compliance and processing defects.
Standardized material data interfaces to enable a full process simulation. This will significantly accelerate and optimize the many steps of an aerospace composite component development program: from material selection, to factory definition, to tooling design, to part conceptual design, then detailed design, production insertion, and finally combining production data back with the original simulation.
