Software for composites



I apeal to your more knowledgeable selfs because I am in need of assistance. I work as an intern in an R&D instutute (INTCD Comoti - Romania) and our department needs to aquire software for modeling and testing composite materials (mostly CFRP). I understand that the best software out there for this sort of thing is ABAQUS by DS. I whant to know what you think and maybe you can help me write a task book in with the minimum tehnical requiremets will be written. That's the thing, I do not know where to look, at what characteristics to look to determine wich software is the better one. Please help me with this. If I am not makeing myself understand, please ask me. I really need to get to the bottom of this. I'm kinda stuck in a tree and the tree is floating :/.

Thanks alot!

Best regards,

John B.
