Learn about some of the new features in Simulation Composite Design.
Use an extensive, customizable database of laminae as well as fibers, resins, and core materials to build your laminate or sandwich panel.
The Laminate module provides nine composite laminate analysis features to help you easily determine laminate properties and performance.
Easily calculate global laminate properties and export the properties to finite element codes. Use Simulation Composite Design to validate your laminate through virtual testing, perform failure analysis with a variety of failure theories, and plot your design spaces. .
Find fast, accurate solutions for deformation, bending, vibration, and compressive stability of laminate plates, sandwich panels, tubes, and beams.
After you have defined a laminate, simply specify your structure geometry, select from a menu of loading and boundary conditions, and apply your load to quickly determine the response of your laminate.
From building a composite fabric to optimizing your laminate, the Utilities module provides additional tools that are useful for composite design.
