Simulating Composite Structures
Composite materials are the future for many industries. Their lightweight and high strength give significant advantages. The Finite Element Analysis capabilities of ANSYS Mechanical with ANSYS Composite PrepPost (ACP) allow engineers and designers to make the most of these materials.
Simulation of important effects of fibre layup are obvious but regions where temperature, shear and material degradation are often overlooked. Not considering these factors may lead to designs that whilst appearing to meet design goals, may miss targets due to missed details.
