Alan Duerden, CAD support engineer for Renault F1 Team, will speak on developing composite racecar parts using FiberSIM software and the Renault F1 Team car will be on exhibit at the VISTAGY booth (C21).
Renault F1 Team has used FiberSIM to advance the design and manufacture of composite components on three generations of racecars, including the R25 car, which raced the team to victory in both the Federation Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) Formula One Drivers’ and Constructors’ World Championships in 2005. Alan Duerden, CAD support engineer for the team, will give a presentation titled “Champion cars, composite parts, and FiberSIM” in the VISTAGY booth at the following times:
▪ Tuesday, March 28: 10:30, 13:30, and 16:30
▪ Wednesday, March 29: 10:30, 13:30, and 16:30
▪ Thursday, March 30: 9:30, 11:30, and 14:30
In addition, regular demonstrations of the latest release of FiberSIM software will take place in the booth. FiberSIM 5.1 boasts several major new capabilities, including new tools for merging models, defining zones, generating automated plybooks, and specifying splices and drop-offs.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) selected a lightweight FiberSPAN fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) bridge deck, manufactured by Composite Advantage, for the Rugg Bridge on Route 57.
The Lightweight Technologies Forum will take place in parallel to Composites Europe, on 6-8 November 2018 in Stuttgart, Germany.
Tecniplas will exhibit FRP tanks suitable for contact with drinking water at the Fispal Tecnologia food and drink trade fair in São Paulo, Brazil, on 26-28 June.
