The development of innovative lightweight materials and new materials processing techniques is essential to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint and effectively address its other environmental challenges. Come and discover the possibilities offered by multiphysics modeling in this field during this free online day, organized on Thursday November 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This day organized by COMSOL includes several thematic sessions devoted to materials processes and treatments. This event is freely accessible and takes place on Thursday, November 2 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Faced with the challenges of decarbonization, the industry must innovate. Thus in the aerospace industry, composite materials are increasingly replacing metals in a wide range of applications. And in some cases, metal components are now manufactured, or rapidly prototyped, using additive manufacturing methods rather than conventional machining processes. This development also extends to other sectors, such as automotive and energy.
As requirements for decarbonization and efficient energy use rapidly evolve, modeling and simulation have become important tools in both the manufacturing and use of manufactured products.
COMSOL Multiphysics® is increasingly used for the analysis of lightweight composite materials and their manufacturing processes. For example, it can be used to analyze the impact of lightning on composite structures as well as the injection and curing of epoxy in a carbon fiber structure. The software is also frequently used in the analysis of additive manufacturing processes, which require consideration of heat transfer, phase change of materials, structural mechanics and other phenomena in a single multiphysics model.
Register now to learn more about how the software can be used:
– for process modeling and simulation,
– for material treatments with heat generation and transfer, metallurgical processes, polymer processes, phase change and hardening,
– for manufacturing processes such as additive manufacturing.
Through examples and customer testimonials, you will also discover how COMSOL Multiphysics® is used for research and development in the industrial sector.
