Hey Guys! I would like to use Tsai-Wu failure criteria for composite analysis and I have two questions about it. I would like to know which is the maximal load that my composite system can handle, so which load occurs that the failure index is equal to 1? How can I model it? Failure index isn't suitable to scale my design therefore I would like to know the strength ratio of my composite elements. How can I get the proper strength ratios values? (I did not find the proper output card for this matter). You can see the Tsai-Wu failure theory and the strength ratio calculating method in my attachment. Thanks for answers in advance! Best regards, Tüki
Hello, I am simulating a three point bending test for a composite laminate layup and I would like to find the force require for failure or alternatively a method of obtaining the point at which any specific ply has failed under the application of a specific force? Many thanks, Ahmed Gehad
