Seminar Day on Process Modelling and Simulation for Composites

In order to increase the awareness and build the academia-research-industrial network, SMF Flyg and RISE are inviting you to a seminar with a focus on the process simulation of composite manufacturing.

More and more small and medium companies are becoming involved in providing products in composite materials and they face many challenges when it comes to final product quality due to manufacturing process variations. Process simulation of composite manufacturing is an active research area which is attracting more and more participants. The goal is to decrease the traditional trial and error methodologies and improve the process and product performance by modelling, simulation and analysis.

This seminar invites you to listen to presentations planned by academic, research and industrial professionals who are active in the field and we will discuss the way forward. Take the chance to learn more about this growing area and how it can make you more competitive in the future. The seminar is free of charge and provided by SMF Flyg och Innovair.
