KTex Family Datasheet

KTex Family is a set of tools (integrated in HyperMesh or stand-alone) dedicated to composite material at the scale of the yarns. Their aim is to take into account the manufacturing process in the assessment of the mechanical properties of the material.


Process Simulation of Parts Made with Complex Fabrics

This webinar demonstrates how KTex tools available through the Altair Partner Alliance, can help predict the mechanical behavior of structural parts made with complex fabrics, taking in to account their manufacturing process. Webinar highlights:

  • Easy model-building of complex fabrics and stacks
  • High precision simulation of the lay-up process
  • Minimize fabric and part testing
  • Predictive simulation of the fibers movement
  • Complete customizability of the composite stack and the manufactured part

Lay-up Simulations to Choose the Best Fabric Pattern for an Aeronautic Radome

This webinar is about simulating the draping of the radome with different fabric pattern and choose the best. The choice of the best pattern will be based on the draping results, the fabric aspect, the fiber orientation, and if possible, on electromagnetic performance. The webinar will be based on Altair’s Aero Wing concept, and will present KTex Family of tools created by CEDREM.
