Original Abstract

The article describes finite element method (FEM) utilization at lightweight structure design of a small aircraft made from composite material. The procedure begins at suitable material definition based on selected manufacturing technologies. Following problem presents an effective modeling of the structure. Evaluation of the simulation is presented as a key phase of the methodology. An open source freeware code ComPost has been written on the background of the small aircraft development projects. The code offers detailed post-processing of a composite laminates analyzed by finite elements method. A case study of the ComPost application at aircraft structure analysis of a VUT 081 Kondor demonstrates benefits of this code during a design phase of a small aircraft development.
