As a $4.5 billion global company, HCL Technologies brings IT and engineering services expertise under one roof to solve complex business problems for its clients.
HCL Technologies needed to design a lightweight vertical stabilizer for an aircraft tail assembly and ensure that it would be strong enough to withstand impact from bird strike and meet flight certification regulations.

Using Abaqus, R&D engineers simulated structural behavior
during impact for a series of composite and hybrid-material
stabilizer designs of varying thicknesses and composition to
determine which options would satisfy safety standards.
Realistic simulation focused design development and, as a result,
helped the engineering team dramatically reduce costly and
time-intensive physical testing for their aerostructure design
