Tool-Part-Interaction simulation process linked to laminate quality

Highly integrated composite structures require complex tooling with increasing physical and geometrical complexity. Factors affecting laminate quality include thermal expansion, pressure distribution, frictional effects, and their influence on the consolidation of the part. The objective of this topic is to develop a FE based model, currently not available on the market that will make it possible to simulate the complex consolidation process during the cure phase and link the result to laminate quality. Please refer to the full and formal topic descriptions published in this call.
