JEC Forums in Boston September 22 - 23

JEC Forums return for the fourth time to Boston September 22 - 23, 2015, at the newly enhanced Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC).

Because planes and cars use composites extensively, all of the key products present in these transportation-based topics take advantage of the many properties of composites materials. "Superior strength/weight, durability, tailorable physical properties and corrosion resistance are just a few of the factors that make composites such a compelling materials alternative in both the aeronautics and the automotive industries," said a spokesperson.

The first day of the forum will focus on design, optimization and simulation while the second day will underline mass production and cost-reduction of composites in aeronautics and automotive. The forum will also organize networking sessions over the two days with table-tops exhibitors and a JEC Leadership Circle dedicated to simulation.

Program details:

  • Design optimization: the end of the black metal approach

For a long time, composites were used as "black metal," following the method of considering a metal component's geometry and simply replacing that material. This approach, however, causes a number of issues that make it impractical. During the design, composites structures require more consideration than equivalent metal ones in order to be used to their full potential. This session will delve into the optimization of this first and crucial step in concept development. It will include speakers from CETIM, Chomarat, Composites Agency, Dassault Systèmes, GSEa Design and Stanford University.

  • Simulation: combining speed and accuracy

Predicting the behavior of composite materials without actually manufacturing the part is an important endeavor, since it can save significant amounts of funds. With several industries leaning towards mass production, speed is of the essence but accuracy cannot be sacrificed in the process. To this effect, simulation tools need to provide a global view - from virtual design to virtual testing and then on to virtual manufacturing. The session will include speakers from CompoSIDE, GE Global Research Center and Stanford University.

  • How can production ramp-up goals be met in the aeronautics industry?

For the last few decades, the aeronautics market has become a major opportunity for the composites industry. With the automotive industry quickly evolving towards high production rates and lowered costs, the challenge is still up in the air for the aeronautics world. The reason behind this is that the less costly, mass produced parts that could possibly be used in aircrafts need to meet the subsequent requirements that are much more rigorous in the aeronautics industry: strength, stiffness and damage tolerance, etc. This session will delve into all the questions and possible solutions the industry is working on. It will include speakers from Altair Engineering, e-Xstream, MIT and Surface Generation.

  • Cost-competitive solutions for mass production in the automotive industry

Composites materials have been present in the mainstream automotive industry for a while now, but one of the biggest challenges they face is the transition to high volumes of production. These days, the automotive industry is the largest consumer of composite materials, accounting for over 20% of total consumption. Currently, most of the composite parts that are produced are too expensive for mass production because of the cost of raw materials and the lengthy production time. This session covers how the industry is planning on overcoming these obstacles. It will include speakers from CETIM, Coriolis Composites, Dieffenbacher North America, IACMI, SGL Group and TUM.
