The Design Revolution Offered by Combining Additive Manufacturing with Simulation Driven Design

Topology optimization is a computer based calculation procedure which can design mechanically stressed component structures in such a way that the highest possible rigidity can be achieved with minimal material usage. Only those parts of a component which are essential for the required flux of force and necessary stability are generated. This results in complex structures which can only be built partially or not at all using conventional production processes. At this point the advantages of additive manufacturing come into focus.

Transformative Flight Transportation: Challenges Become Opportunities

Advances in energy storage, motor efficiency, and flight control systems have us on the potential cusp of a revolution in air mobility. This comes at a time when many traditional transportation infrastructures are saturated and new modes of mobility are desperately needed. The presentation will provide an overview of recent developments in urban- and extended-air-mobility and discuss the hurdles that must be overcome, not only technical obstacles but also challenges in regulations, societal acceptance, and business. It will provide context with an overview of our own technical challenges and successes, from the imminent Transition® to the aspirational TF-X.
