ANSYS ACP Webinar - FEA, CFD and Explicit Dynamics


Composite materials are created by combining two or more layered materials, each with different properties, to create lightweight, high-performance products. To predict how well the finished product will perform under real-world working conditions, engineers must consider stresses and deformations, as well as a range of failure criteria. The numerous layers, materials, thicknesses and orientations of layered composite structures make this a challenging task.

Attend this webinar to learn how to design and analyse composite structures with ANSYS Composite PrepPost.

Areas we will be covering are:

  • Composite materials and their challenges for numerical modelling
  • Defining the elastic properties of composite materials
  • Using ANSYS ACP to build-up multi-layered composite structures
  • Draping analysis to evaluate wrinkling and distortion of fibre orientations
  • Failure criteria for composite structures
  • Parameterisation of composite designs in ANSYS Workbench
  • Advanced modelling techniques (progressive damage modelling and delamination)
