Webinar: ESAComp 4 ANSYS Composite PrepPost (in German)
Join this free, live webinar hosted by CADFEM and Componeering to learn how ESAComp features can enhance your design process with ANSYS Composite PrepPost (ACP). The presentation takes appr. 45 minutes and focuses on data exchange between the software tools. Also ESAComp basic features, such as the material databank and structural elements are introduced. The same webinar is given twice, in German, on 09.07.2013 at 10:00 W. Europe Daylight Time and 31.07.2013 at 15:00 W. Europe Daylight Time. See here for more information and sign-up!
UPM announces the Biofore Concept Car
UPM has announced the Biofore Concept Car project. The concept car is designed and manufactured in partnership with Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology, and several other partner companies, including Componeering. The principles of sustainability and recyclability are followed in the design. The concept car utilizes UPM's innovative biomaterials as main raw material for many parts and components. The Componeering team has conducted the design optimization of the composite car body. The concept car will be manufactured to be a street-legal vehicle and will be finalized during spring 2014.

Componeering presentation on composite car body optimization at NWC 2013
A Componeering presentation on composite car body optimization will be featured at the NAFEMS World Congress 2013 in Salzburg, Austria, June 10-12. The presentation describes the procedure how the CFRP body of a future city car was optimized to minimize weight using ESAComp in combination with modeFRONTIER for optimization and ANSYS for the FE analysis. See the abstract for more details.

The properties of fiber-reinforced composite structures can be tailored with layer orientations and stacking sequence. For example, you can design your laminate so that under a tensile load it twists, but at the same time it does not bend nor shear. Typically, distortions are unwanted but sometimes they may be beneficial when properly understood and utilized. Read more...
