Finite element simulation of woven fabric composites

FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization

We use advanced FEA tools for material investigations based on an advanced woven model that is capable to consider the underlying weave pattern and yarn structure that cover weave patterns in which the warp yarns go across multiple layers of weft yarns, hence improving the interlaminar toughness and the impact resistance of the material. Structural analyses set up based on local warp / weft information from draping simulations. Material modeling performed fully nonlinear, temperature and strain rate dependent.

Woven composites are typically draped onto more or less complex surfaces to produce structural parts. The overall objective is to use light-weight materials with the best stiffness and strength properties possible. The draping process can have significant impact on local warp and weft angles which leads to a local variation of effective material properties. Understanding the connection between the warp / weft microstructure, the resulting material properties and finally their influence on the part performance is crucial knowledge in the design process of woven composite structure.
