Smart Materials for Aerospace and Defense

Smart, advanced materials are being designed to perform multiple functions. These extend traditional structural design requirements to encompass tailored thermal and electromagnetic characteristics. In the aerospace industry, examples include piezoelectric control surfaces for aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance improvement. Watch the video to see how the ANSYS multiphysics platform can be used to develop a complete virtual prototype for the design of a smart, advanced material system.

View the presentation to see how ANSYS multiphysics solutions can be used for integrated, multi-disciplinary design of a smart, advanced material system that optimizes the strength, weight, thermal, electromagnetic and stealth properties of a drone aircraft.
