A simulation architecture has been developed by 3DSIM to enable rapid predictions of part internal residual stress, distortion and microstructures. Development of these tools were substantially underwritten by contracts from NAVAIR, the Air Force, DARPA, and aerospace companies. As these tools are being commercialized, aerospace companies are starting to see commercial benefits from the insights they are given through simulation. Successful projects and products which are being aided by 3DSIM’s aerospace partners and customers will be overviewed in this talk.
- Understand state-of-the-art simulation capabilities for metal AM
- Determine whether simulation tools might bring value to your organization
- Explain how simulation tools reduce the time and cost involved in aerospace component qualification
