LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA (11/28/2017) – In conjunction with the Commerical Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), AlphaSTAR Corporation's Chief Scientist, Dr. Frank Abdi will be presenting papers on the subject of Certification by Analysis at the AIAA SciTech Forum at the Gaylord Palms and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida; January 8-12th, 2018.

Dr. Abdi, visionary behind AlphaSTAR's suite of software products, including GENOA, a durability & damage tolerance, progressive failure, and reliability software has implemented the technologies building block certification strategy to design a safe load landing in case of Bird Strike Impact. With the ability to provide engineers with predictive computation technology to characterize and qualify advanced composite materials and structures, GENOA was also utilized in a Wheels Up Landing Certification. The software's Multi-scale progressive Failure Dynamic Analysis was implemented on large scale structural models prepared to predict significant deformations, damage and fracture evolution subject to wheels up landing scenarios.
