Finite Element Method Used to Create Light-Weight Reinforced Plastic for Cleaner Transportation

Researchers from Tokyo University of Science have developed a new design method that could lead to lighter, faster, and cleaner vehicles and airplanes. Their technique, published in Composite Structures, simultaneously optimizes fiber thickness and orientation. As a result, it reduces the weight of reinforced plastic parts commonly used in aerospace, civil engineering, and sports equipment.  […]
