With significantly reduced operating costs, electric aircraft will change the economics of travel – and eliminate carbon emissions. With magniX propulsion technology powering a range of different aircraft, the company is offering a glimpse into the electric era of aviation. Sara Roggia, Senior Electric Propulsion Engineer at magniX, explains how simulation helps to build electric aircraft.
“You can’t do these calculations by hand. We need to run finite element simulation. We simulate the stress around the motor and the mounting parts; everything is done with simulation.”
