Manned space travel is the ultimate simulation challenge. In this webinar we’ll hear about simulating for the Orion spacecraft, including:
- How analysts have to account for a broader range of physics including widely ranging temperatures and extreme vibrations
- How minimizing weight translates to reduced materials and unusual designs and composite materials that require specialized analyses.
- How Finite element analysis (FEA) is playing a key role in understanding the loads and stresses that the modules will experience during all phases of their journey.
- How FEA helps to optimize factors such as weight, stiffness, material selection, shape and strength of individual parts.
