Design of cost effective composite components using pultrusion
Thursday 30th June
2pm BST – 3pm GMT+2 – 9am EDT

This webinar will focus on the key aspects of designing parts and structures in Fibre Reinforced Plastics (FRP) made of the assembly of one or more pultrusion products. Pultrusions enable cost savings within the composite supply chain.

Covering the main topics of materials selection, ply generation and laminate construction, we will show how pultrusion profiles can be created and evaluated with ease and confidence. Parameterised profiles and models can be used to identify ideal combination of shape and materials to evaluate costs and structural performance.

Finally, more complex models can be adopted for grillages and similar structures using load cases to understand the limits and failures of such structures.

In this webinar you will learn how to:
– Perform an initial selection of materials to suit your project goals, targets and constraints
– Stack materials to build plies, calculate properties with integrated micro-mechanics
– Build and analyse laminates with Extended CLT capabilities
– Create parametric pultrusion profiles, assign the material properties and calculate reserve factors to meet the structural performance requirements while reducing costs and weight
– Apply your profiles to beams or more complex structures to validate your designs

The webinar will feature a live demonstration of how CompoSIDE addresses the above steps within a centralised platform and accessible environment to all engineers working with composite structures.

Join us on Thursday 30th June
2pm BST – 3pm GMT+2 – 9am EDT

Who Should Attend?
The webinar is aimed to professionals working with pultruded profiles and structures who are looking to improve their engineering workflows, reduce engineering time and costs while increasing their capabilities.
