Apart from Ansys Composite PrepPost, AR engineers used optiSLang in the design phase for an advanced optimization of the boom of a sailing race dinghy
For decades, fiber composites have been successfully applied in yacht racing. The knowledge of application has reached an incredibly advanced level. Especially for construction parts with just a few requirements regarding the boat design, the technical development supported by simulation software is an important factor for success.
Sailing and construction teams consider further technical optimization as an economic challenge, especially in the highly developed boat classes. Low production quantities even increase the cost pressure on development asking for special approaches of design.
