NAVAIR Awarded GEM Phase II SBIR Program for Flexbeam Failure Prediction

Posted on: July 7, 2021 | 0 Comments

On July 7, 2021, Global Engineering and Materials, Inc. was awarded a contract under a NAVAIR Phase II SBIR program to develop, validate, and demonstrate an accurate and efficient modeling approach for high-fidelity 3D stress prediction and failure initiation and propagation assessment of representative flexbeams subjected to multiaxial static and fatigue loadings. The developed tool will be transitioned to NAVAIR 4.3.3 to support acquisition and sustainment of rotorcraft structural components. The tool can be used to implement a damage tolerance certification approach with controllable fatigue damage accumulation under multiaxial loading.
