Simulation of 3-D Composites Step-by-Step Video

Watch this step-by-step introductory video on modeling thick composites structures. It covers all steps of the process, from material definition to orientation of composites to creation of the 3-D model.


Strength, Durability & Innovation

Supported by industry-leading physics, structural analysis software from ANSYS helps you to design and verify your product designs in a virtual, risk-free environment.


Structural Analysis Software

The ANSYS structural analysis software suite is trusted by organizations around the world to rapidly solve complex structural engineering problems with ease.

FEA analysis (finite element) tools from ANSYS provide the ability to simulate every structural aspect of a product:

  • Linear static analysis that simply provides stresses or deformations
  • Modal analysis that determines vibration characteristics
  • Advanced transient nonlinear phenomena involving dynamic effects and complex behaviors

All users, from designers to advanced experts, can benefit from ANSYS structural analysis software. The fidelity of the results is achieved through the wide variety of material models available, the quality of the elements library, the robustness of the solution algorithms, and the ability to model every product — from single parts to very complex assemblies with hundreds of components interacting through contacts or relative motions. 

ANSYS FEA tools also offer unparalleled ease of use to help product developers focus on the most important part of the simulation process: understanding the results and the impact of design variations on the model.
