Composites

How do I recover interlaminar stress from shell elements for composites?

How do I recover interlaminar stress 13, 23, xz, yz, from shell elements for laminated composites?

what element should I use?

 


Postdoctoral Position Available at University of Western Ontario, Canada

Position is available for a postdoctoral fellow to carry out an industry sponsored project on carbon fiber composite modeling. The contract is initiated for one year, with possible extension if work progresses satisfactorily. The research will focus on

 (1)  micromechanics modeling of elastic and viscoplastic behavior of injection molded carbon fiber composites;


 (2)  homogenization techniques and constitutive model development for vibration, strength and impact simulations of carbon fiber composites.

Post-doctoral position in bio-inspired micro-architectured materials at McGill University

I have an open position for a Post-doctoral researcher in the area of biomimetic materials, starting immediately. The successful candidate will explore and optimize bioinspired microarchitectures to increase the mechanical performance of engineering materials (glasses, ceramics, polymers).  This work will expand on our recent progress on overcoming the brittleness of glass (http://barthelat-lab.mcgill.ca/publications.html). Materials and systems of interest include nacre-like ceramic / polymeric composites, multilayered conch-shell like composites and fish-scale inspired flexible protective systems.


Extract natural frequencies in abaqus

Hi all,

 I am new in the blog, so I would like to appologies if this post is already published.

 I am doing a research in vibracion-based health monitoring based in CFRP beams. As a part of my research, I am modeling a composite beam in abaqus and apply transient analysis on it. Before I would like to validate my model with a very simple a easy model for this reason I have elaborated this procedure:

FEM Code for Wave Propagation Analysis

Hi every body,

I'm looking for a FEM code (Matlab, C++, Python,...) for analysis wave propagation in plates.

It would be the most kind of you to let me know how I can find it.

Regards,

New Ebook on Elastic Solids at Amazon

This treatise provides a broad overview of the definitions of
fundamental quantities and methods of analysis for the use of solid materials
in structural components. The presentation is limited to the linear elastic
range of material behavior where there is a one to one relationship between
load and displacement.  Fundamental
methods of analysis and typical results for structures made of elastic solid materials
subjected to axial, bending, torsion, thermal, and internal pressure loading;
basics concepts of stability, plates, shells, finite element method, and mechanics
of fibrous composite materials.
