AIRBUS A350XWB FTE:

Developed entire A350 IFTE Linear Static GFEM and load correlation effort on behalf of GE Aviation.

• Correlated the entire load case input through the GFEM, using SQL large data techniques for a potential 100million load case combinations.

• Static analysis of handling and assembly loads on A350 wingbox structures.

 

Software:

Powerful multi-processor computers are available to allow the rapid analysis of large complex models using state-of-the-art proprietary software such as HYPERWORKS, ANSYS and MSC PATRAN/NASTRAN.
