KTex Pattern overview

Recommended Posts

KTex Pattern is part of the KTex Family. It is launched from HyperMesh as a TCL script. It aims at building finite element (FE) models of any kind of weave (1D, 2D and 3D).

 

To do so, some inputs are required, such as dimensions of the fibers, the desired weaving pattern, the material of the fibers, the type of elements to mesh the fibers and the desired size of weave. With all these parameters, a FE model of the weave is automatically generated and meshed.

A database of many fiber cross sections is available, but bespoke cross sections can be generated. Fibers can be meshed with shell or solid elements.

The user has the choice to generate only the Representative Elementary Volume of the weave, or to specify rectangular dimensions, or even to use a line created in HyperMesh in order to fill it with the described weave.

A database of commercial weaves is available in the software but bespoke patterns can be generated.

Several plies can be stacked on top of each other, mixing all the different possibilities of the software. An angle can be defined from one ply to the other. This gives the possibilityy to generate many kinds of stacks, potentially including patches.

 

Attached is an overview video of the software capabilities. For more information, reply to this topic or contact support at : support_ktex@cedrem.fr
