About this Webinar

As sustainability grows in importance globally, the transportation industries need to react and reduce environmental impact without increasing costs. One method of achieving this is reducing weight and thus energy consumption. Advanced Ansys simulation and modeling lead to validated and innovative weight-saving designs, but this is only part of the story. To have an optimal product you need both optimal design and optimal materials.

Using hybrid materials for train floors as an example, this webinar shows how systematic, intelligent materials selection can help reduce component weight and costs, and meet necessary engineering requirements for the railway industry. Ansys simulations help you rapidly explore the design space to find the right solution. 

The closer you are to the end product, the greater the investment in the solution. By identifying the right materials early in the design stage there are fewer development steps, reduced development costs and shorter time to market. 

In this webinar you will:

  • Understand Ansys solutions for materials in the railway industry
  • Learn how intelligent materials selection and design can help enable innovation and product improvement
  • Discover how to reduce material and energy costs
