Conformal isogrid ribbing on low bypass turbofan engine casing
Published on July 30, 2020
Isogrids are triangular ribs used in aerospace to stiffen lightweight structures. Designing isogrid ribs that conform to a surface in traditional CAD can be challenging, especially when the geometry has a large curvature.
In this nTop Live, Evan Pilz, Application Engineer at nTop, goes through the steps you need to follow to add conformal isogrid ribs on the casing of a turbine engine using the least amount of effort in nTop.
Watch and learn how to:
- Apply conformal isogrid ribbing to any surface in nTop
- Create multiple design iterations 10x faster to identify the optimal solution
- Automate your workflows and reuse them in different parts to save time
