Composites

In the quest to make products lighter yet stronger, manufacturers are increasing their use of composite materials. It is also prohibitively expensive to create prototypes of products made from composites, so simulation must play a key role in the development of new products using laminate composite materials. Simcenter is at the leading-edge of composites analysis through continuous development of material models and element types. Simcenter speeds the entire process for simulating laminate composite materials through a seamless connection to composites design, accurate solvers and comprehensive post-processing.

Simcenter is at the leading-edge of composites analysis as illustrated through the following features:

Composite Solvers

Simcenter offers best-in-class solvers for speed and accuracy to compute results of your laminate composite structures. Simcenter’s solvers can analyze various performance attributes of composite structures, such as structural analysis (linear and nonlinear), thermo-mechanical simulation and acoustics. For large models, the solvers are scalable across high-performance computing (HPC) clusters to compute solutions even faster.

Manufacturing Process Simulation

 

One of the most basic problems related to the use of composite materials is the choice of a manufacturing process. This choice affects many aspects of the final component, from cost to production rate and capabilities; but also potentially has an impact on the component performance itself. Simcenter has the ability to simulate manufacturing process phenomena like curing and crystallization. Using Simcenter, you can design your composite structures to account for spring back effects and residual stresses to achieve optimal performance of your products.

Pre-/postprocessing for Composites

 

Simcenter speeds the entire analysis modeling process for laminate composites. You can quickly create finite element properties representing your laminate composites design through integration with Siemens’ composites design software, Fibersim. Using powerful geometry editing and meshing capabilities, you can quickly create a finite element analysis model to be used with Simcenter’s solvers or for external solvers. You can then view results from these solvers directly in the Simcenter 3D environment to determine your next course of action.

Progressive Damage Growth

 

A major challenge to engineering composites structures is to design both the structure and material to fully support the loads that a structure will experience to achieve optimal performance. Composites analysis using Simcenter can help you achieve a damage tolerant, lightweight design. Gained from a decades-long relationship with industries that heavily use composite materials, Simcenter integrates the ability to accurately model different damage modes.
