Developing the Transition®: Simulation for Composite Structure in a Flying Car


Developing a practical vehicle that simultaneously satisfies road and aircraft regulations to become a true "flying car" presents significant engineering challenges. Yet this is what the team at Terrafugia has achieved with their proof-of-concept vehicle known as the Transition®, which has been flying and driving for the past 2 years. The next generation prototype is currently in development with the aid of simulation packages to allow for rapid design iteration before performing required physical tests.

In this Webinar, Terrafugia will discuss the design process for the composite structure of the Transition® airframe and the role and benefits of physics based simulation.
