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.
