Design Integration of Advanced Lightweight Composite Materials and the Challenges of Multifunctionality

The aerospace and defense and automotive industries are leaders in the adoption of advanced materials. Driven by the need to improve energy efficiency and increase performance without compromising safety, aircraft and advanced automobiles are leveraging the properties of composite materials to provide strength while reducing weight. However, the complexity of the materials, their design and manufacture are challenging traditional design workflows. An efficient method for simulating the performance of composite materials is therefore required. As more demands are placed on these materials, for example thermal and electrical performance, durability and stealth, not only is an efficient simulation environment required, the tools used must be able to capture these multiphysics effects to understand the multifunctional performance of the material. In this webinar, ANSYS will discuss the role of simulation based engineering for the efficient simulation of composites and the emerging challenges of multifunctionality. Dr. Perterer will describe how the ANSYS simulation tool set for composite materials enabled the design team to reduce the weight of the KTM X-Bow sports car monocoque by 20%.

In Situ Health Monitoring of Piezoelectric Sensors

    On occasion, anomalies may appear in the highly dynamic test data obtained during rocket engine tests. These incidences are investigated, and a corrective action may be mandated before subsequent engine testing. The appearance of spurious signals of unknown cause is a typical challenge encountered in accelerometer data channels.
