Ansys Tutorial

Composite materials are created by combining two or more layered materials, each with different properties. These materials have become a standard for products that are both light and strong. Composites provide enough flexibility so products with complex shapes, such as boat hulls and surfboards, can be easily manufactured. Engineering layered composites involves complex definitions that include numerous layers, materials, thicknesses and orientations. The engineering challenge is to predict how well the finished product will perform under real-world working conditions.

Finding Nx Ny and Nxy in ABAQUS

I am performing a thermal stress analysis of composites. I need to verfiy the results with an existing paper. The variation of the thermal force resultants, Nx, Ny, and Nxy, of the plate along the y direction . I would like to know how to obtain the same with abaqus.

Hello All,


Properties Lamina/Composite-Composite Layup using Abaqus

Hey everybody,

Actually I don't have the same thickness everywhere(that decreases little by little). I tried to part but it's not exactly the same thickness in the same part. Do you know if that can cause a problem? For example I have a scrap like that 10 mm+-2mm for thickness. I would think to fill in the composite layup like that Ply1 : 2 mm-Core : 6 mm-Ply2 : 2 mm

I use this occasion to ask you two more questions : 

Simulation Thermal Mechanics of PCB with Vias Using Ansys

Hi, I am new to this blog & asking for help from you! If any one know that Ansys has 3D composite element that we can use to simulate PCB with Metal Vias (In-plan Fiber glass & epoxy & Out of Plan Metal Cylinders. Tx
