Hands-on Workshop: Introduction to Composite Analysis

February 28 @ 09:00 - 17:00


Introduction to Composite Analysis Event, what is it?

By attending this free physical classroom event you will learn the secrets of progressive failure analysis of composites. The basics of composites simulation in Abaqus will be covered, as well as the advanced concepts of modelling material and interface degradation and failure. This workshop is an ideal way to understand what advanced simulation can offer and actually how easy it is to perform a real world analysis.Starting with a lecture session covering the essential concepts of advanced composite simulation, the course also gives the attendees the opportunity to try advanced solutions such as debonding, failure, delamination, crack propagation and other highly complex events.

For who is this event?

For engineers who have some experience of Composites or FEA and would like to look at what is possible with simulation of composites and for engineers where ultimate structural performance is a critical product characteristic in their field. For example in areas of composite engineering such as marine, offshore, renewable energy, automotive, sports equipment and medical.

What topics are discussed?

The workshop first gives an introduction to Non-Linear analysis, concepts and typical solutions, Optimization, Multiphysics and Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics. And subsequently processes and approaches are introduced by hands on tutorial examples using the SIMULIA Abaqus software.

1. The basics of composites analysis using Abaqus
Model change to simulate different conditions, high performance parallel solutions to minimize run times.

2. Considering debonding and other failure mechanisms
Material, connection damage, composites crushing, robust general contact.

3. Hands-on session
Advanced solutions as debonding and failure, advanced solutions as delamination, ply-stresses and other highly complex events.
