ANSYS Inc. (Canonsburg, Pa., USA) reports that it is offering a free seminar on new modeling and design techniquies for composite structures, to be held Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott (Los Angeles, Calif., USA).
The seminar will introduce and demonstrate a new workflow process for physics-based simulation of composite materials that offers the engineer a solution to many of the simulation process bottlenecks. This new workflow for composites modeling can be integrated within a multiphysics environment for seamless load transfer and can be coupled with parametric analyses for rapid design space exploration and design optimization. Finally, some of the future challenges and opportunities in this field will be discussed.
