ANSYS Composite Cure Simulation


The ANSYS Composite Cure Simulation (ACCS) allows you to simulate the thermal-chemical reaction and to predict the development of residual stresses as well as process induced distortions during the curing of composite parts. The main focus is on composite manufacturing yet the same principles apply to the curing of unreinforced thermosetting polymers.
This course introduces the capabilities of ACCS and shows how it can be used in the ANSYS Workbench environment.

Learning Outcome

  • Understand the principles of cure simulation

  • Understand how ACCS is integrated in ANSYS Workbench

  • Understand what material properties are required for a cure simulation

  • Know how to set up a transient thermal analysis to calculate the development of cure.

  • Know how to set up a static structural analysis to calculate the residual stresses based on the thermal cure simulation

  • Understand how to mimic the demolding step and how to invert distorted parts


  • Introduction to ANSYS Composite PrepPost

  • ANSYS Mechanical Heat Transfer as a general knowledge

Target Audience: Structural analysis engineers with a focus on composite design and composite manufacturing.

Teaching Method: The learning is based on the completion of a workshop

Learning Options: Training materials for this course are available with a ANSYS Learning Hub Subscription. If there is no active public schedule available, private training can be arranged. Please contact us.
