Overcoming the Challenges of Composite Design through Simulation
Composite materials have been used in the aerospace industry for many years due to their lightweight and high performance characteristics, but the issue of product weight is not limited to aircraft. Automotive manufacturers are increasingly viewing the material as a method of minimizing mass and maximizing fuel economy.
UK based automotive design company, Gordon Murray Design (GMD) believes that composite materials can play a much larger role in the manufacture of vehicles and to prove its case, the company has developed ‘iStream’, an efficient process for manufacturing low and high volume cars from lightweight mixed materials.
This update includes many exciting features, enhancements and bug fixes to HyperWorks 11.0 Desktop applications including HyperMesh, HyperView, HyperGraph, MotionView, HyperStudy, HyperMath, Solver Interfaces, Engineering Solutions and Manufacturing Solutions.
World-Leading Crane Manufacturer TADANO FAUN Accelerates Its Design Processes with HyperWorks
Designing mobile cranes, with countless possible configurations, can be a mind-bending experience for Tadano Faun GmbH engineers. The Japanese-owned company, headquartered near Nuremberg, Germany, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of cranes that lift equipment at construction sites. Ensuring that these cranes — each with as many as eight axles — have the flexibility that contractors need can present substantial engineering challenges.
