Thermal Analysis Challenges in Aerospace Industry
Some of the most difficult thermal problems occur in the aerospace industry. These include the thermal design of a spacecraft in Earth orbit or flying to another planet, cooling an aircraft’s high powered avionics, anti-icing on airplane wings and engine nacelles and predicting solar heating loads on missiles or aircraft baking in the sun. This webinar will focus on using the advanced thermal solver Sinda and the model builder Patran to create thermal models to solve the thermal issues typically found in aerospace industries.
Nonlinear multi-scale modeling of short fiber reinforced plastics

This webinar will cover the basic usage principles of Digimat software including application examples from the automotive industry.
Simulation of the noise radiated by a vibrating structure with Actran
Noise radiation by vibrating structures is an important factor of consideration in design of products like gearbox, engines, and electronic devices. Simulation helps users better understand the noise radiation into the environment, so that their acoustic performance can be improved and noise pollution reduced, along with improving the product life. This webinar will provide an overview of acoustic radiation analysis capabilities of Actran, a pioneering acoustic simulation solution from FFT, an MSC Software Company. The webinar includes a demo with an introduction to modeling and post-processing capabilities of Actran, including computation of sound pressure level, sound power level, structure panel contribution factor, and structure element contribution.
Simulating manufacturing processes
Manufacturing processes are used to form materials into desired shapes to meet required design criteria and assemble components into final product. Because of multiple variables that could affect the process, identifying optimal parameters by empirical methods or experience can introduce severe uncertainty in the performance of the end designs. Simulation helps address these issues early in the design cycle to more effectively identify problems and reduce failures. Marc, with its strengths in nonlinear and failure analysis, is a strong solution to simulate various manufacturing processes. An overview of Marc's capabilities that help with overcoming the challenges of these highly nonlinear processes is provided in this presentation.
Dynamic Solutions for Transmission Systems
For the first half of this webinar, we’ll be introducing the different modules in Adams/Machinery: Gears, Belts, Chains and Bearings. There will also be a live demo showing how easy it is to create a Gear pair and a chain-sprocket system that can be used in a transmission system. For the second half of the webinar, we’ll introduce the Adams Gear AT and Bearing AT toolkits. These are other Adams solutions focusing on the detailed FEA integration for those mechanical components. At the end, there will be another transmission model demonstration showcasing its capabilities.
