ESTECO webinar recording | Reliability based robust design optimization of a free-fall-life-boat

ESTECO and BETA CAE Systems hosted a joint webinar on July 12th 2017, presenting a reliability-based robust design optimization application to a Free-Fall-Life-Boat.

ESTECO hosted Dimitris Drougkas from BETA CAE Systems who demonstrated the advantages of the integration of their software in the modeFRONTIER multi-objective design environment for a reliability based optimization of a free fall lifeboat. 

The webinar focuses on a reliability-based optimization method to statistically increase the safety of free fall lifeboats, which are typically used to evacuate passengers in oil platforms and large transport vessels.
ANSA software is used to morph the free fall lifeboats mesh by editing its shape and its initial position, and modeFRONTIER is used to automate the simulations performing an optimization under the uncertainties of the operational parameters.
