Tutorial 78: Stress Analysis of Composite T-beam

Tutorial by Armin Yousefi Kanani

ACP has a pre- and post-processing mode. In the pre-processing mode, all composite definitions can be created and are mapped to the geometry (FE mesh). These composite definitions are transferred to the FE model and the solver input file. In the post-processing mode, after a completed solution and the import of the result file(s), post-processing results (failure, safety, strains and stresses) can be evaluated and visualized. After a completed solution, the post-processing is used to evaluate the performance of the design and laminate. The post-processing functionality for Solid Models of ACP allows the mapping of ply wise results on to the reference surface of the solid model. This ensures that also failures occurring inside the laminate can be observed and investigated. Failure criteria are used to evaluate the strength of a composite structure. Several failure criteria can be defined, combined and configured in the Definitions object. Failure criteria definitions can be used for failure plots and sampling points. The critical failure mode for an element shown in failure plots and sampling points is the one with the lowest reserve factor.
