Title: Optimization of Weight Including Damage Scenarios
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX08CB24P
Award Amount: $99,606.00
 

Abstract:

M4 Engineering proposes to develop a method of incorporating several analyses into one process and then optimizing the structure. This method will allow for significant weight savings of structural compoents by incorporating analyses for damage tolerance, and durability in the design phase. Damage tolerance analyses, especially, have been difficult to iterate on since it has been time consuming to create models of each damage condition. The proposed method will be a highly efficient and useful method in reducing weight of structures.
