MultiMechanics will demonstrate the newly-released composite tube and pressure vessel optimization tool at CAMX 2018. The optimizer combines genetic algorithms and the ability to accurately represent microstructural damage within advanced materials to allow for automatic design of high performance composite tube structures, streamlining the engineering design loop.
By eliminating the need to fabricate and test multiple physical prototypes, the optimizer dramatically reduces the time and cost associated with the development of composite tubes and pressure vessels. It automatically generates models, eliminating the FEA learning curve and pre-processing time to allow for more efficient engineering analysis. Additionally, the optimizer automatically runs multiple simulations based on design constraints, permitting overnight analyses.
"We are excited to share our new tube and pressure vessel optimizer at CAMX. This tool was developed based on feedback from our customers and we are eager to help them achieve substantial time and cost savings," stated Dr. Flavio Souza, President & CTO at MultiMechanics.
A case study titled "Modeling Failure in Fiber-Reinforced Composite Tubes Using Multiscale Technology" will take place on October 18th from 9:30AM-9:55AM. Additionally, demos will be held throughout CAMX at booth M44.
Produced by industry leaders ACMA and SAMPE, CAMX has established itself as North America's event that connects and advances the world's composites and advanced materials communities - the go-to marketplace for products, solutions, networking and advanced industry thinking. CAMX will take place in Dallas, Texas from October 15-18.
