Hi everyone, I have to simulate an object made by thermoplastic composite laminate. I know that I have to do a model calibration with a fitting of experimental curves but I have a lot of doubts about the correct procedure. For exemple on the one element test I have to define laminate and plys or I have to use a single ply with laminate's thickness? Could anyone send me some material about composites model calibration? Thanks in advance. Marta
ESAComp is software for analysis and design of composites. Its scope ranges from conceptual and preliminary design of layered composite structures to analyses of details. ESAComp is a stand-alone software tool, but thanks to its ability to interface with widely used finite element software packages, ESAComp fits seamlessly into the design process. The comprehensive material database of ESAComp forms the basis for design studies. ESAComp has a vast set of analysis capabilities for solid/sandwich laminates and for micromechanical analyses. It further includes analysis tools for structural elements: flat and curved panels, stiffened panels, beams and columns, bonded and mechanical joints. ESAComp is developed and supported by Componeering Inc., Finland. www.esacomp.com or check out our Altair Partner page http://www.altairhyperworks.com/partner/ESAComp ESAComp-Intro.pdf
Hello, I have a input file from optistruct for a composite material structure, which has 200+ sets. They are written in terms of element ranges and element ids . I want to process it in matlab. Is there any method to change the set card to be defined only by element id's. This will make my life easy to process all the data. Thanks SACHIN
Hey Guys! In HyperMesh I have many load collectors and I want to know that does any method exist to create load steps automatically and named these load steps after the load collectors and choose automatically SPC and LOAD in analysis type. It's a simple linear static simulation. It could accelerate my work, so it would be very helpful. Thanks for the answers in advance! Best regards, Tüki
