Quilted Stratum Design: Optimization Software for Preform Tailoring

New composite processes open new degrees of freedom that bridge the step between lay-up optimization and mass production. Design methods must include process constraints and cost evaluation to use at best the composite material and therefore answer to current industrial needs of simultaneous light weighting and cost reduction. In this webinar, you'll learn how Cetim, Onera and Altair have collaborated to propose the QSD method. QSD is a three-step optimization method intended to propose efficient designs with a reduced computational cost. The method is based on a stiffness matching approach. They create an intuitive workflow in HyperMesh environment that lead the designer to a smart composite design, with adapted fiber orientation and reduced material scraps thanks to draping analysis.

Introduction to QSD® by Cetim

An Introductory webinar to QSD (Quilted stratum design), an easy-to-use design optimization workflow integrated within Altair HyperWorks. With QSD you can tailor your thicknesses and orientation of your composite lay-up to reach your cost/performance target, providing faster and better prospective design, improved tailor composite preform optimization, and design to cost with integrated process know-how.
