Can someone help me load carbon fiber reinforced with ABS material properties into ANSYS for analyzing a helmet shell?
This is for testing the amount of impact energy that Carbon fiber helmet shells can absorb during collision.
This is an ambitious exercise....
Do you have FiberSIM?
Whatever you come up with when you build your mesh elements, test it against a Matlab Analysis using J.N. Reddy layerwise laminate theory. So brush up.
These types of analysis are typically carried out by people who just do analysis because it's very specialized practice. That aside, whatever you do, your results should not diverge much from the Reddy layerwise predictions. If they do, you're likely on the wrong path.
