CompositesWorld, publisher of High-Performance Composites and Composites Technology magazines, as well as the CompositesWorld Weekly newsletter, will co-host, with software specialist Autodesk (San Rafael, Calif., USA), a webinar on April 17 titled, Simulating ultimate failure: Converging on a solution with composite materials.
In this Webinar, Doug Kenik will discuss the need for simulating past first-ply failure in conventional implicit finite element analysis (FEA) tools and how to achieve convergence using Autodesk Simulation Composite Analysis. Simulating ultimate failure in composite structures using traditional implicit FEA codes can be very challenging. The behaviors of composite materials are inherently nonlinear during failure cascades, and FEA solvers can have difficulty converging on solutions during such events. Join us as we discuss simulating ultimate failure, and coupling inter and intra-laminar failure using Autodesk Simulation Composite Analysis coupled with Abaqus, ANSYS, and MSC Nastran to achieve convergence.
The presentation will include an introduction to Autodesk simulation, a review of simulating failure in composites and unique features of Autodesk's composites simulation software.
The webinar will be April 17, 2:00-3:00 p.m. EDT. Visit CW Webinars for more information.
