SAMPE Long Beach Conference and Exhibition, California, May 23-26, 2016. André Mönicke presents the results of a study on optimizing part of an aircraft door surround model, including related load-response calculations, failure and buckling reserve factor analyses. The design process is built around optimization features offered by Altair's HyperStudy - a solver-neutral design optimization and stochastic study software - along with ESAComp software for design and analysis of composites. Different parameterization concepts are evaluated. Both numerical results and the performance of the optimized structures are reported and compared with an aluminum baseline design.
Don't miss "Design-Optimization of a Curved Layered Composite Panel Using Efficient Laminate Parameterization" on Thursday, May 26 at 3:30 PM in session: Optimization and Simulation. Presentation now available online.
