Predictive Modeling of Complex Contoured Composite Structures

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The innovation is to have validated tools and processes to transform idealized designs into a true digital twin with 'as built' parameters modeled for enhanced performance predictions. First, we will transition from 'as designed' or idealized performance modeling to as built modeling using FiberSim® software. Secondly, we will validate the software's predictive capability with a global structure testing and local coupon testing taken from an existing application.

The existing HDWLT (pictured) contoured composite structure design, its analyses and manufacturing tools, will be used to validate key analyses inputs through structure manufacturing, collecting relevant test data and assessing the performance parameters.
