ANSYS Composite Cure Simulation Solves Curing Challenges

While fiber-reinforced composite materials add strength to a component while reducing its weight, problems with differential cooling of the fiber and matrix can lead to residual stresses and strains, resulting in deformation. ANSYS Composite Cure Simulation (ACCS) software combines the thermal and structural simulation capabilities of ANSYS Mechanical with a chemical solver to solve curing problems throughout the process. The chemical solver’s embedded transient thermal system simulates the development of polymerization, the transition temperature, and internal heat generated by exothermal crosslinking reactions to ensure that the final component has the desired size and shape with no deformation.
