CompositesWorld is hosting a Siemens-sponsored free webinar on March 16, 2016, 2:00 p.m., titled, "Design and Manufacturing of Advanced Composites Spacecraft."

Abstract: Significant disruptions are occurring in the space market that include important advances in the use of composite material technologies. Industry experts recognize that the use of carbon fiber, and other composite materials, is growing significantly in spacecraft, satellite, launch vehicle and virtually all other spaceflight-related applications. This trend is being driven by a requirement to decrease weight, increase payload and reduce fuel requirements. This webinar will discuss how the use of composite materials creates unique challenges for both engineering and manufacturing, and provide an overview of the specialized technology that is necessary to address these challenges. Learn how Siemens PLM Software is being used to help companies meet the growing need for composite design and manufacturing solutions in spaceflight applications.

Primary topics include:

  • Industry trends related to design and manufacturing of spacecraft, satellites and launch vehicles
  • Understanding best practices of composite design and engineering in spaceflight applications
  • How technology can support the optimization of designs for performance and manufacturability
  • Introduction to Siemens PLM Software for specialized engineering.

The presenter will be John O’Connor, director, product and market strategy, aerospace and defense, Siemens PLM.
