Digital design of heat-resistant dimensionally stable carbon laminate (CFRP) structures

Cite item

Full Text


Special features of designing heat-resistant dimensionally stable structures are considered. A new design procedure is proposed, in which finite elements are used as a language for describing the load-bearing structure of a construction and the distribution of material in it considering the possibility of setting the desired structure of a composite material. The design task is formulated in terms of nonlinear mathematical programming. A sequence of digital models is used for its approximate solution in the interactive mode. The specific features of finite element modeling of thin-walled structures made of laminated composite material are discussed. The technique is demonstrated using the example of the development of a large-size space telescope body.
