ESI expert Frederic Masseria will be contributing with the following presentation:
Manufacturing Process Simulation of Fiber Reinforced Composites – Industrial software tools and state of the art in research
Fiber reinforced composites (FRC) are widely used in order to reduce the weight of structural parts. Depending on the manufacturing process, the prediction of stiffness and strength based on FEM is often still a challenge. The simulation of the whole manufacturing process can be very helpful in order to get the necessary information for such a prediction.
The presentation will introduce the industrial software solutions of ESI Group for manufacturing process simulation (MPS) of FRC. These solutions contain draping-, resin injection- and curing process simulations with the tools ESI PAM-COMPOSITES. The advantages, the limits and the usability will be shown.
About Composites Confidently Build Lightweight Composite Products Free From Defects with Easy-to-Use Composite Simulation Software
With the unique capabilities of ESI PAM-COMPOSITES, you can study each step of the composites manufacturing chain through a process-oriented workflow. Material information and history (local shearing, local fiber content, and orientation, degree of cure, etc.), as well as geometrical properties (shape, thickness, etc.), are seamlessly transferred from one stage of the manufacturing chain to the next. This ensures maximum feedback accuracy when adjusting the process parameters to correct defects and reduce production cycle time.
Founded in 1973, ESI Group envisions a world where Industry commits to bold outcomes, addressing high stakes concerns – environmental impact, safety & comfort for consumers and workers, adaptable and sustainable business models. ESI provides reliable and customized solutions anchored on predictive physics modeling and virtual prototyping expertise to allow industries to make the right decisions at the right time, while managing their complexity. Acting principally in automotive & land transportation, aerospace, defense & naval, energy and heavy industry, ESI is present in more than 20 countries, employs 1200 people around the world and reported 2020 sales of €132.6 million.
