Process and best practices for structural analysis of composite structures
Composite materials have been used in the aerospace industry for many years. Other industry sectors like automotive, marine and wind turbines incorporate more and more of these materials in the design. Even if they present very interesting mechanical properties, for instance regarding weight saving, structures made of composites exhibit complex material behaviors, especially when the assumption of linearity cannot be done anymore.
In this on-demand webinar you will learn:
What is the real behavior of thin-walled composite structures?
What are the non-linearity and failure modes?
Why should we use a damage tolerant approach?
How can we obtain tight safety margins when sizing composite structures?
How can we model the non-linear behavior of composite structures?
