New methodology for light highly damping structures design and manufacture

New manufacturing and design methodologies have been developed to facilitate the design of LDSs (Light and damped structures) that fulfil requirements for mechanical industry. Different points have been analysed in order to successfully transfer gluing technologies to machine manufacturing sector. Solutions have been proposed, tested and evaluated in terms of lightness, damping, manufacturing time, geometry precision, price, long term resistance, etc.

Special attention has been paid to design methodology validation (simulation tools validation) and to manufacturing processes. These points will assure reliable designs and will permit that the developed methodologies can be easily implemented and final product will be competitive in terms of costs, manufacturing time, time to market, performances, etc.
