Webinar: Light-weighting Aircraft Interiors

If you missed the Light-Weighting Aircraft Interiors webinar, you can catch up with a recorded version of this Engineering.com presentation and see how Femap helps aircraft designers optimize cabin interiors to reduce weight and help keep operating costs low.

Co-presenter Dr. Charles Roche, structures integration manager at Pratt & Whitney, discusses weight reduction challenges and trends in the aircraft industry giving a fascinating insight into the role simulation plays within aircraft design.

In the latter part of the presentation, Tyler Smithson, consultant with C&D Zodiac, discusses the evolution of design to include new lighter weight materials with aircraft interior components and the value of simulation to reduce or even replace physical testing – citing an interesting if somewhat unusual example: the imploding lavatory!
