In this course, the students will learn how to design and prepare for manufacturing laminated composite parts for aerospace, automotive, and other industries. The course is divided into two sections: engineering design, and manufacturing detailed design.

Fundamental Topics in this CATIA Training Course:

Composite Part Engineering
  • Composite materials catalog
  • Laminate definition (including laminate materials, directions, and importing laminates)
  • Zone-based design (including creating constant thickness and transition zones, imposed thickness points, and checking zone connections)
  • IML from zones (including solid and top surface from zones, and laminate analysis from zones)
  • Automatic ply generation and control (including ply creation from zones, ply creation by slicing a solid, ply reordering, and ply staggering in transition zones)
  • Manual ply creation (including manually creating ply groups, plies, and cores)
  • Ply analysis and mock-up tools (including ply exploder, 3D section, core sample, mass and cost analysis, and checking ply contours for intersections and overlaps)
  • IML from plies (including solid and top surface creation from ply stacking)
  • Producibility analysis (including ply draping simulation, fiber deviation analysis, and ply splicing)
  • Engineering documentation (including ply 3D annotations and drawings)
  • DMU composites review (reviewing the composites design on assemblies)
Composite Part Manufacturing
  • Manufacturing data structure (including OML surface swapping and synchronization with engineering data)
  • Modifying ply stacking (including adding plies and cores manually, re-limiting existing plies, adding material excess for trimming, and ply mirroring)
  • Ply information and analysis (including on-the-fly composites information and numerical analysis)
  • Ply splicing (including 3D and 2D multi-splicing, butt-splice and no-splice zones)
  • Producibility and flattening (including ply draping and flattening simulation, flat pattern optimization, and geometry transfer between 3D and flat pattern)
  • Manufacturing documentation (including ply book, and ply and flat pattern export)
