Composite Pressure Vessels (CPV) play an important role in the emerging market for the fuel cell electric vehicles, but there are also numerous more traditional application areas for CPVs. The filament winding process used for the manufacturing of CPVs ties the possible fiber paths to the manufacturing process. Hence, in the design and analysis of CPVs it is important to include both the manufacturing and structural simulation.
The webinar shows how Altair software interface with third-party filament winding simulation software to create CPV structural models using different level of details according to analysis needs. The use of multiscale material modeling provides means for accurate damage and failure predictions of CPVs.
