Webinar: Safety on the Orion Manned Spacecraft

by Community Manager Community Manager on ‎04-10-2015 02:45 PM

Manned space travel is the ultimate simulation challenge. In this webinar we'll hear about simulating for the Orion spacecraft, including:


  • How analysts have to account for a broader range of physics including widely ranging temperatures and extreme vibrations
  • How minimizing weight translates to reduced materials and unusual designs and composite materials that require specialized analyses.
  • How Finite element analysis (FEA) is playing a key role in understanding the loads and stresses that the modules will experience during all phases of their journey.
  • How FEA helps to optimize factors such as weight, stiffness, material selection, shape and strength of individual parts.
