Contract: N68335-08-C-0347
Award Amount: $69,999.00
 

Abstract:

ACTA Incorporated and Sandia National Laboratories propose a seven month STTR Phase I project to demonstrate the feasibility of developing an automated simulation of aircraft structural joints in structural analysis models. The technical approach includes an expert system executive to create detailed models of abstracted joint components including interfacing structural components, fasteners and nonlinear interface constitutive models. Optional tasks are proposed with a three month performance period to implement a selected joint model in an existing finite element structural modeling code to demonstrate the feasibility of integrating the proposed joint model within conventional finite element modeling software.
