Air­bus Group par­ti­tions

Bloomberg Businessweek (North America) - - Tech­nique -

● The new light­weight cabin par­ti­tions be­ing tested in the Air­bus A320 op­ti­mize strength by MIM­ICK­ING CELL STRUC­TURE and bone growth. Says Benyus: “When you get down to the level of de­sign prin­ci­ple, [ bone growth] re­ally lends it­self to al­go­rithms. The de­sign­ers took that par­ti­tion, which is a solid piece and pretty heavy, and ran it through a pro­gram that knows where the lines of stress are go­ing to be. Based on that, the pro­gram takes ma­te­rial away from where it’s not needed and puts it where it is.”
