Abstract
A computational system is required that contains validated/certified tools and models that can be readily employed by non-FEM experts. Designers would be able to input parameters, such as panel bay spacing, boundary conditions, skin material and thickness, skin stiffness, flushness requirement, and scarf angles, while the system would automatically construct a valid finite element representation of the repair area. The system must also be capable of taking loads from larger global models and accurately applying these loads to the system-generated model. The system must be able to generate models for wing skins, fuselage skins, control surfaces, and doors. The system should also serve as a repository for completed repair projects that can be documented, referenced and shared. Finally, the system should provide the means to study, monitor, and manage the repair design process.BENEFITS: The computational system that forms the infrastructure of the Rapid Repair Analysis Tool will be scaleable and provide a framework that is easily extensible to support a variety of standard repair configurations and other classes of problems (e.g., mechanical systems, hydraulic systems, etc.). This system offers tremendous benefits to companies that seek to standardize and retain corporate design knowledge but do not have the resources to develop such tools internally. We see a definite market for this tool in both military and commercial aerospace sectors (e.g., Piper, Gulfstream, Hawker, Raytheon, etc.).
