New Entrants in Aerospace: Composites as the Deciding Factor

Siemens

The complexity of the multiple interactions between material choices, tooling selection, design methodology and manufacturing processes must be fully appreciated in order to devise the most robust and efficient approach to optimizing composite aerostructures to achieve lower costs, higher quality and reduced weight. This is a fundamental change in airframe design. Engineers will be forced to rely more on engineering tools than on established design rules as they adopt more composite content into their designs.
