Process-induced distortions are inevitable when carbon-fiber composites are manufactured. This induces considerable costs in today’s assembly processes since a significant amount of shimming is necessary. Today, there no consistent reference syst

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

The developed reference-element concept allows an unique definition of a single-coordinate system. Comparisons between simulation results, measurement data and the nominal design become easy since faulty best-fit comparisons are avoided. Part quality a
