Postdoc (m/f) on fracture toughness of high performance composite materials

Your tasks: The main objective of this position is to improve the fracture toughness of high performance composite materials. You are expected to plan and implement manufacturing and processing experiments with carbon fibre thermoset prepregs and characterise their fracture properties. Furthermore, you will plan respective processing equipment and thoroughly investigate fracture mechanics of composites. This also includes the development of according numerical analyses and simulations.

How to use abaqus input files from abaqus example problems guide

I am new to abaqus and am going through this tutorial on "Damage and failure of a laminated composite plate".  I find lot of input files at the bottom of this example. I tried "importing" them by going to file->import but I find that there is no geometry or mesh associated with it. Does one create the geometry oneself? How do we use the sample ".inp" and ".f" files to learn about abaqus sample problems.

cdmHUB: Publish and Run Composites Simulation Tools In the Cloud

We recently launched the Composites Design and Manufacturing HUB (cdmHUB.org), a community-driven, collaborative platform that has the unique capability to let users to freely publish and run simulation codes in the cloud in addition to all the social network functionalities (blogging, questions/answers, groups, etc.).

Portuguese version of cadec-online available

The Protuguese version of http://cadec-online.com/ is available. Previous versions include English, Spanish, and Farsi. English is the base version for the developement of the app. I did the Spanish translation. Farsi and Portuguese were done by volunters. We are looking for volunteers for other translations. pls contact me if interested.

24th International Workshop on Computational Mechanics of Materials (IWCMM 24) in Madrid, Spain, on October 1st-3rd 2014

The abstract submission for the 24th International Workshop on
Computational Mechanics of Materials (IWCMM 24) in Madrid, Spain, on
October 1st-3rd, 2014 is now opened. The deadline for abstract
submission is June 15th, 2014.

The workshop is intended to cover all aspects of modeling and
simulations of the mechanical behavior at different length and time
scales. The materials of interest range from traditional materials such
as metals, alloys, polymers and composites to advanced and emerging
materials and bio-materials.

Modeling of Particulate Composites

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hi

I am trying to model particulate composites and simulate their stress-strain response. The problem that I am facing is that the inclusions (stiffer than the matrix) are only acting as points of stress concentration. Consequently their is no strengthening and hence no apparent increase in load carrying capacity of the composite. Any help/suggestioin in this regard would be higly appreciated.

Regards 

 

 

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.

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:
