Efficient failure analysis capabilities

Learn how Simulation Composite Analysis software provides accurate and efficient composite simulation and failure analysis to help you reduce testing and shorten design cycles.

    Multiple analysis types

  • Support for multiple materials

    Simulation Composite Analysis is designed for multiple material systems, each with their own failure modes accounted for in a progressive failure analysis.

  • Static analysis

    Simulate response of static loads, or determine composite structure life under fatigue loading using a physics-based progressive fatigue calculation.

  • Explicit simulation

    Compatible with both Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit to simulate progressive response with either formulation.

    Advanced composite analysis

  • Progressive failure analysis

    Simulate the distinctly nonlinear progression of failure events more accurately in composite structures.

  • Composite delamination

    Simulate intra-ply (fiber and matrix) and inter-ply (delamination) failure simultaneously.

  • Energy-based material degradation

    Use energy-based damage evolution to control the rate of material degradation for your composite structure.

  • Multi-scale analysis

    Select the right advanced composite failure criteria to predict distinct failure of the fiber and matrix constituents.

  • Fatigue analysis

    Determine the life of your composite structure under fatigue loading with physics-based progressive fatigue life calculation tools.

    Process efficiency

  • Convergence and computational efficiency

    Gain the improved accuracy of a constituent-based composite failure method.

  • Simplified material input

    Use a built-in library of lamina materials, or quickly define your own with an easy-to-use interface.

  • Direct FEA integration

    Add Simulation Composite Analysis to your finite element analysis (FEA) platform for advanced composite materials analysis.
