Tighter timeframes, tougher requirements, less stress? The argument for 1D-3D co-simulation
In today’s environment of fast-paced change, engineers need to find ways to minimize development time and cost while maximizing performance and reliability. A combination of 1D-3D simulation techniques is one way to achieve this.
Crack propagation in composites and how to avoid it: A DLR case study
Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) have become especially popular in space applications due to their ability to withstand extremely high temperatures. At the German Aerospace Center (DLR), researchers are investigating the use of CMC components for high-temperatures and demanding-environment applications.
