Composites Design: Damage and Fracture Mechanics for Adavanced Design and analysis

FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization

Having deep knowledge about composite technologies and its application to take full advantage of composites in the development of light-weight, high-performance structures using advanced CAE tools that specialized for Composites Design, we could determine optimal ply lay-up structures for weight and performance, quickly synthesize and model concepts, and accurately predict impact damage including fiber and matrix failure, delamination, rupture and crack propagation.

Design composite structural parts for crash and impact analysis:

  • Deformation and damage analysis
  • Material failure predictions
  • Drop and crushing testing
  • High-speed and hypervelocity impacts
  • Highly nonlinear, transient dynamic forces
  • Explosive loading and forming

The increase in global competition and environmental awareness has necessitated the development of optimum weight aerospace structures. Aligning our expertise of using optimization technology to determine minimum weight metallic or composite structures, we have been instrumental in pioneering the establishment of Optimization Centers at major aerospace OEMs.

WE WORK WITH YOU

The structural durability of a composite component is one of the most expensive attributes to test, thus one of the most appealing for CAE. Fatigue modeling of chopped and continuous fiber polymer composites is challenging due to their anisotropic, heterogeneous and viscous material properties as well as their process-dependent microstructure.
