Addressing Aircraft System Development Disconnects

System design is, by nature, a process of decomposition, starting from specifications and resulting in a detailed, multi-discipline design. Systems failures are often the result of disconnects in the process. However, gaps can be closed by moving to model-driven development in a structured, requirements-driven process. By applying a seamless, concurrent development process, engineers are able to move validation and verification earlier into the design cycle, when changes can have positive impacts and real improvements can be made.

Reverse Engineering: The First Step to Efficient Design and Analysis in the Aerospace Industry

Reverse engineering is fast becoming a more popular method of creating 3D data without existing CAD files. This process reconstructs classic designs and implements new ones. It can generate lost or absent design documentation and update or create “as-built” documentation.

A Better Way to Measure Displacements and Strains: Optical Metrology for the Next Generation in Aerospace, Automotive and Micro-Electronics

ARAMIS is a true finite element measurement system that allows you to intuitively understand the material response of complex structures under test and directly validate detailed computer models. The PONTOS optical mobile measurement system provides 6-DOF (degrees of freedom) measurement of all types of structures, from wing flexure (NASA Dryden) to rocket motor vibration studies and modal analysis, all with the same hardware. Our equipment can study everything from thermal expansion (using ARAMIS Thermography) to vibration and shock, with cameras running at up to 10M fps (frames per second). The data collected can then be used for everything from materials studies to manufacturing quality control reports.

3D Printing: Multi-Materials and Vibrant Color

Connex 3D Printing was the first technology to offer multi-material 3D printing. With the Objet500 Connex3, Stratasys launched another first: a color, multi-material 3D printer. Combining three base materials dramatically extends the possibilities — rich, vibrant colors and unprecedented material versatility.

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.
