Composite materials play an important role in modern structural design. To effectively design and analyse these structures while ensuring performance and reliability, companies are finding the need to evolve their analysis methods to include more fidelity in their models. Abaqus provides a wide range of innovative modelling and analysis techniques to address the unique challenges posed by composite materials. This Dassault Systemes webinar is aimed at engineers and analysts wishing to acquaint themselves with the composites modelling capabilities in Abaqus. 

What to expect:

  • Modelling of mixed composites – a methodology to create structures with a number of discrete layers
  • Pre- and post-processing of composite FEA models and their results
    • Performing draping operations
    • Extruding a composite shell model in to solid elements and generating the corresponding properties and ply drop-offs
    • Associativity with CATIA
  • Modelling damage and failure in composites
    • Damage and failure of fiber-reinforced composites
    • Cohesive behaviour and VCCT techniques to model delamination
