Composite Structures Analysis Engineer

Perform detailed simulation of composite structures for stiffness, strength, manufacturability, and damage tolerance, while optimizing weight and performance using the Composite Structures Analysis Engineer Role

The SIMULIA 3DEXPERIENCE Composite Structures Analysis Engineer (SNE-OC) Role brings end-to-end composite layup designs, material modeling, cut section evaluation – to composite product mesh and assembly, and ultimately composite product performance – to meet or exceed your product minimum weight and high strength requirements – all in 3DEXPERIENCE.

Composite Structures Analysis Engineer offers additions and distinguishes from other major roles as follows:

  • Adds Composites Model Creation app to Structural Analysis Engineer (SYE)
  • Upgrades to Mechanical Scenario app (from Structural Scenario), and adds Fatigue and Nastran Converter app, to Composite Structures Performance Engineer role (CYE).

Composite structures play a vital role in products for lightweight strength and durability. The Aerospace and Defense industry has led many breakthroughs with composites design in military and commercial aircraft, and all future aircraft programs. Composites are predominant in other industries, for boat and ship hulls, recreational vehicles, and sports equipment. Composite materials are used in the next generation of electric vehicles, and increasingly applied in medical products, high tech components, industrial building materials, etc.

To meet these demands and be competitive, manufacturers need to empower their Product Engineering teams with an integrated platform for composite structures design, modeling, and simulation. Dassault Systemes has been a leader in composites design and modeling, starting with its CATIA Composite Design and Manufacturing apps, and SIMULIA Composite enablement app for meshing, modeling, and analysis. To leverage technologies, SIMULIA’s Composite Structures Analysis Engineer has been created for the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to add the composites capabilities to its one of its flagship simulation roles, Structural Analysis Engineer.

The role brings a model-based process, seamless collaboration between simulation engineers and project stakeholders, for informed discussions and accelerated product release. Powered by 3DEXPERIENCE platform, composites product engineering is fully design-associative, with cloud modeling and computing options, for product innovation in next generation virtual engineering environment.
