CompositesWorld is hosting a free Siemens-sponsored webinar on Wednesday, Nov. 15 at 2:00 pm EST, titled, “New Entrants in Aerospace: Composites as the Deciding Factor.”

Abstract: The complexity of the multiple interactions between material choices, tooling selection, design methodology and manufacturing processes must be fully appreciated to devise the most robust and efficient approach to optimizing composite aerostructures to achieve lower costs, higher quality and reduced weight. This is a fundamental change in airframe design. Engineers will be forced to rely more on engineering tools than on established design rules as they adopt more composite content into their designs.  Composite materials will have an ever-increasing impact on engineering tools, with software required to assist engineers in determining appropriate assembly methods and enable the analysis of performance, cost and producibility. These engineering tools must help engineers reduce time to market by efficiently providing them the data they need to develop optimal designs with the appropriate balance of weight savings and cost to manufacture, while meeting performance criteria. 

Presenter will be John O'Connor (Siemens).

  • Tooling

    Composite parts are formed in molds, also known as tools. Tools can be made from virtually any material. The material type, shape and complexity depend upon the part and length of production run. Here's a short summary of the issues involved in electing and making tools.

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
