CompositesWorld is presenting a Siemens-sponsored webinar on Feb. 11 at 2 pm EST titled, "Vehicle Lightweighting: Mixed Material Strategies Provide Automakers with a Lighter Future." The presenter will be Edward Bernardon, Siemens VP, strategic automotive initiatives. 

Abstract: To meet stricter regulations aimed at significantly reducing emissions and improving fuel efficiency, automotive companies must drastically rethink the way vehicles are engineered and manufactured. In this webinar, Bernardon will discuss the evolution of CAD-based engineering in order to achieve lightweight body structures that meet cost, weight and performance targets. He will discuss the challenges to efficiently engineering composite components and hybrid joints and assemblies, and how Fibersim and Syncrofit software from Siemens PLM Software can support a mixed materials strategy.

Attendees will learn: 

  • The impact of vehicle lightweighting
  • Industry trends related to engineering and design of hybrid material assemblies
  • How composites and assembly engineering software must evolve to support system tradeoffs
  • Introduction to Fibersim and Syncrofit software solution
