by Community Manager Community Manager on ‎06-30-2015 04:02 PM - edited

If you missed the Light-Weighting Aircraft Interiors webinar, you can catch up with a recorded version of this Engineering.com presentation and see how Femap helps aircraft designers optimize cabin interiors to reduce weight and help keep operating costs low.


Co-presenter Dr. Charles Roche, structures integration manager at Pratt & Whitney, discusses weight reduction challenges and trends in the aircraft industry giving a fascinating insight into the role simulation plays within aircraft design.
