Composite modeling and simulation software specialist MultiMechanics (Omaha, NE, US) is demonstrating its newly released composite tube and pressure vessel optimization tool.

Composite modeling and simulation software specialist MultiMechanics (Omaha, NE, US) is demonstrating its newly released composite tube and pressure vessel optimization tool. The optimizer combines genetic algorithms and the ability to accurately represent microstructural damage within advanced materials to allow for automatic design of high-performance composite tube structures. By eliminating the need to fabricate and test multiple physical prototypes, the optimizer helps reduce the time and cost associated with the development of composite tubes and pressure vessels. It automatically generates models, eliminating the FEA learning curve and pre-processing time to allow for more efficient engineering analysis. Additionally, the optimizer automatically runs multiple simulations based on design constraints, permitting overnight analyses. Booth M44.

Flavio Souza, president and CTO of MultiMechanics, will give a case study for the tool, titled “Modeling Failure in Fiber-Reinforced Composite Tubes Using Multiscale Technology,” Oct. 18, 9:30 a.m., D223/224.
