[en] Bird strike issues are known to cause substantial losses to the civil aviation industry in terms of damage and delay every year. Rules of bird strike resistance are included in many important regulations and guidelines of civil aviation. Based on these rules, attentions should be paid during the design and analysis process for those structures that might be apt to suffer from bird strike as leading edge, radar dome, wind shield and vertical tail.
This paper describes a new software infrastructure for bird-strike design and analysis. The bird-strike resistance synthetic analysis platform is a platform that incarnates new research and innovations in bird-strike dynamic strength analysis of our research group. The platform was implement using finite element method and parametric design method based on ESI Pam-crash software, and involves a dynamic performance database of the typical aviation material, a typical structure database for bird-strike resistance, a post-processing modular for result reveal, and an estimation modular for energy absorbing. The material database covers the key constitutive model constants for many common aviation materials. Different bird model for Lagrange, Euler, and SPH algorithm are also covered to fit for different impact speed simulation. The typical structure database are very helpful to the designers because it provides the parametric model of some special bird-strike resistance structures to improve the energy absorbing ability subject to impact. The post-processing modular enables the contour and curve display for the results. The estimation modular gives judgments on the energy absorbing structure by utilizing the criterion and provides proper advices for the design for different cases.
