Modeling and analyzing complex laminate composite structures
Siemens simulation forum webinar series
Duration: 60 minutes
Schedule: 4th Thursdays, every other month starting in February, 2014
In the quest to make products lighter yet stronger, manufacturers are increasing their use of composite materials. Because of the complex nature of composite structures, however, engineers must be able to evaluate failure modes that are unique to composites. Siemens PLM is at the leading-edge of composites analysis through continuous development of material models and element types and solution capabilities. NX CAE also speeds analysis modeling for composites through a seamless connection to Fibersim. With Fibersim, we create a solution that can be manufactured along with easily generating draped based ply material definitions for incorporating into a finite element model.
