Develop new models and solvers to simulate geometrical variations and mechanical behaviour in the same CAT analysis. The aim is to develop new CAT capability to enable flexible tolerancing for composite structure with material detailed properties (thic

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

Perform tolerance simulation of composite structural assemblies in order to assess precisely what would be the gaps at interface levels and to predict maximum shim thicknesses. This new technology will enable several business applications: - Tolerance&

Contribution to LOCOMACHS High Level Objectives

  • Design and manufacturing rules defined and validated
  • Increased use of tolerance and variation management
  • Reduced recurring costs of shimming operations
  • Reduced recurring costs of dismantling operations
  • Reduced recurring costs through increased automation
