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

    Simulation Composite Analysis software works with Abaqus Explicit to simulate the progressive response subjected to dynamic loading.

  • Fatigue analysis

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

    Advanced composite analysis

  • Import Simulation Moldflow results New

    Improve the simulation accuracy of your injection molded part by importing material data and fiber orientations through the Advanced Material Exchange. Transfer "as manufactured" simulation data from Simulation Moldflow to your structural model. Conduct a more accurate structural simulation of the fiber-filled material early in the design cycle, and predict material nonlinearity due to plastic deformation and simulating matrix cracking.

  • 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.

  • Reduced mesh sensitivity

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

  • Multiscale analysis

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

    Process efficiency

  • Convergence and computational efficiency

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

  • Simplified material input

    Access a prepopulated material library or enter your own material information.

  • Direct FEA integration

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