Finite Element Analysis - FEA

Updated: Jan 14, 2020

Once we decided that the aircraft would have 6 motors with an expected thrust of approximately 40 kgf each, many designs were tried in order to pursue maximum mechanical strength, minimum weight and minimum structure deformation. Special attention must be paid to asymmetrical flight modes since they are likely to highly impact flight control during self-stabilization. Maximum thrust, hard landings, and asymmetrical turn conditions were some of the load cases considered for the analysis, including some load factors for safety.

All design candidates were analyzed through Finite Element Analysis (FEA), thus we could choose the best.
