New book: FEA of composites using Abaqus

ebarbero's picture

New textbook includes an explanation of the concepts involved in the detailed analysis of composites, a sound explanation of the mechanics needed to translate those concepts into a mathematical representation of the physical reality, and a detailed explanation of the solution of the resulting boundary value problems by using commercial Finite Element Analysis software such as Abaqus. Included are more than fifty fully developed examples interspersed with the theory, as well as more than seventy-five exercises at the end of chapters, and more than fifty separate pieces of Abaqus "pseudocode" (a novel idea for the first time introduced in this textbook). Pesudocode is used to explain in detail the solution of all example problems in a compact format that the reader can follow easily to manually construct, run, and visualize the examples in CAE. The pseudocode translates directly into user's interaction with CAE. A Web site  is set up with links to download the necessary software unless it is easily available from Finite Element Analysis software vendors. The relevant code can be downloaded from the Web site. Furthermore, the reader will be able to extend the capabilities of Abaqus by use of user material subroutines and Python scripting, as demonstrated in the examples included in this textbook.
