Composite Impact Modelling at Frewer

This month, Frewer’s engineers have been combining their significant experience in composite structure analysis with dynamic modelling capabilities to analyse impact on composite wing structures.

The team have been using MSC Dytran, an explicit FEA code ideally suited for the analysis of transient events, to model the impact and consequential failure of the composite panels.

This analysis helps to support decisions around the design of the composite structure, including the evaluation of layup options and the development of reinforcement solutions for regions of the structure that show a particular sensitivity to the high energy, short duration loads that are caused by fragment impact.
