Within research environment several approaches are under investigation for predicting process induced distortions of composite parts. Yet, their applicability is limited for industrial environment due to the great variety of inherent uncertainties of r

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

The composite design process was adapted taking into account manufacturing uncertainties. This was enabled by more reliable methods for predicting process induced distortions and by more efficient methods for statistical analysis of process variations&
