Every design and analysis project contains a unique set of challenges that often necessitate a clever workflow utilizing many different pieces of software. In this class we will discuss how Autodesk, Inc., products were used in the design and analysis of a composite swingarm for an electric motorcycle. In particular, you will learn how the Fusion 360 app, Simulation Composite Analysis software, Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform, and a labs project called Arro are enabling the Design and Analysis Team to digitally prototype this advanced swingarm.
- Gain an appreciation for the wide range of Digital Prototyping tools offered by Autodesk
- Discover how different Autodesk products can be combined to solve unique projects
- Discover how the cloud facilitates collaboration
- Discover Autodesk products that you may not be aware of
Rick Dalgarno worked as a Composite Engineer for Firehole Composites for 5 years and now works as a Technical Consultant for Autodesk (Firehole Composites was recently acquired by Autodesk). He earned his BSME and MSME from the University of Wyoming. Rick is an expert in advanced finite element analysis of composites and is particularly experienced in the use of progressive failure methods to determine damage evolution in composite structures. Working with aerospace, marine, sporting goods, and motor sport companies, in addition to government research laboratories, Rick has analyzed an extensive range of composite applications. He has authored or co-authored 6 journal and conference publications specific to composite materials.
