Proposed by the PLMCC of Hanoi
Collaborative mechanical design
Context: Nowadays in the aeronautical field, step by step the use of composites is more and more significant.
For example, they represent more than 50% of the total material of the Boeing 787 or Airbus A350
They are massively used for the wings and for structural elements and skin of the fuselage.
Objective: Design some structural components of the fuselage in composite previously designed in aeronautic sheet metal.
With the Composites Grid Design workshop you will design the new composite components.
With the Composites Design you will verify the manufacturing process
With Abaqus, you will perform a structural Analysis to optimize the design to reinforce the structure and do decrease the weight
The components to be designed in composites are the following
You will use Catia knowledge to design a set of similar components (Parametric design, Templates, Power copy, optimization)
The system has to be able to reach a precise positioning.
Some Components are still designed in composite.
Also simulated I Abaqus for structural analysis and optimization
