There is a growing interest in the use of thermoplastic composite materials in the aerospace and automotive industries. These materials can be manufactured into parts faster and at lower weight and cost. Innovative, high-performance engineering polymers are entering the market that, when combined with fiber reinforcement, open new doors for the design and manufacture of thermoplastic composite parts. This 60-minute webinar will explore current advances in thermoplastic composites and their benefits to the aerospace industry.

Topics include:

  • The advantages of thermoplastics over metals or thermosets
  • Eligible databases: generation and use
  • Composites and Hybrids Modeling Approaches

A question and answer session will follow the technical presentation.
