Analysis of Composite Materials with Abaqus

Start Date Days Location Comments Select
Sorry, no sessions are currently scheduled for this course. Please contact us to arrange a suitable training date.

Duration: 3 days

Course Objective
Composite materials are used in many design applications because of their high stiffness-to-weight ratios. This seminar shows you how to use Abaqus effectively to model composite materials. 

The topics covered include:

  • Using detailed modelling of the microscopic behaviour to determine the behaviour of composite materials
  • Defining anisotropic elasticity with Hookean models for combining the fiber-matrix response
  • Defining composite layups using Abaqus/CAE
  • Defining discrete or layered reinforcing within an element using rebars, membrane elements and truss elements
  • Achieving the correct material orientation of the layers of composite shells and solid elements
  • Modelling sandwich composite structures and stiffened composite panels
  • Modelling progressive damage and failure in composites
  • Modelling delamination and low-cycle fatigue of composite structures 

Who Should Attend?
This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus/Standard.
