Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a valuable tool for the space industry, particularly when combined with non-destructive methods such as X-ray computed tomography to inspect and analyze defects. When combined with Finite Element Modeling (FEM), the effect of defects in parts can be quantified.
In this project, an aluminium AM part used for the TARANIS satellite was analyzed to identify the location of porosities within the material. Simpleware was used to generate the model for FEM to validate its structural integration, using a random vibration model and comparison with results from CAD modeling and topological optimization.
