Tutorial 86: Full ANSYS ACP tutorial

6 1 Intermediate
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. This involves considering stresses and deformations as well as a range of failure criteria. ANSYS Composite PrepPost provides all necessary functionalities for the analysis of layered composite structures.

Tutorial 84:Tensile Test

3 0 Expert
Tensile testing, is also known as tension testing is a fundamental materials science test in which a sample is subjected to a controlled tension until failure. The results from the test are commonly used to select a material for an application, for quality control, and to predict how a material will react under other types of forces. In this tutorial, first we are going to model specimen geometry in CAD software then we will apply composite layers in ACP tools. In the next step, we are going to model two metal parts and then at the end we will combine models into static structural. Meshes can be imported into Mechanical from multiple systems. It is possible to combine composite shell, composite solid, and non-layered shell and solid meshes to perform mixed analysis. Agenda:  Modeling solid composite specimen  Add metal parts  Transfer parts to ANSYS Mechanical  Apply boundary conditions, loads and solve the model  Evaluate solid model results in ANSYS Composite PrepPost

Tutorial 76: Stress Analysis of Composite Pressure Vessel (Solid modeling)

3 1 Intermediate
Meshes can be imported into Mechanical from multiple systems. It is possible to combine composite shell, composite solid, and non-layered shell and solid meshes to perform mixed analysis. Mechanical does not allow overlap of node/element number from multiple systems; therefore, the import fails if the meshes from different systems are overlapping in node/element numbers. Meshes from upstream to downstream Mechanical Models are renumbered automatically to avoid any overlap. For every analysis system (mesh), you have the choice between automatic renumbering (default) and manual configuration. If automatic renumbering is disabled, you must ensure that the element/node numbering is unique for each mesh. In this tutorial, first we will model Composite pressure vessel in ACP then we will model metal parts in mechanical model and at the we will combine models in static structural. Agenda:  Solid modeling of composite vessel  Add metal parts  Transfer parts to ANSYS Mechanical  Apply boundary conditions, loads and solve the model  Evaluate solid model results in ANSYS Composite PrepPost

Tutorial 85: Determining the Fatigue Behavior of Composite Tensile Specimen

3 0 Expert
Random vibration analysis is another spectral method. The purpose of a random vibration analysis is to determine some statistical properties of a structural response, normally the standard deviation (1σ) of a displacement, force, or stress. (1σ) Is used to determine fatigue life of structure. In this tutorial, first we will model tensile specimen in ACP tools. Then we need to find 10 modes of specimen between 0 Hz to 1500 Hz frequencies. After that we need to calculate Sigma RMS, N, occurrence and V0 to calculate life time of specimen. Agenda:  Creating Composite Tensile specimen in ACP  Importing ACP model into modal analysis  Finding Mode Shapes  Introduction of random vibration  Applying boundary conditions  Determining the fatigue behavior of composite tensile specimen

Tutorial 75: Find the Best Laminate Configuration of a Composite Tube under compressive load

3 0 Expert
The Parameter feature connects Inputs and Outputs to the Parameter Interface in the Workbench project. There are three numerical variables which are diameter, laminate code and thickness. These variables should be applied to ascertain optimum condition for making composite. In this tutorial we are going to solve problem for specific laminated lay up to find critical buckling load on the composite tube model then by using parameter command in ANSYS we will ask software to solve problem for various laminate lay-up, thickness and tube diameter. Agenda:  Modeling composite tube geometry in ACP tools  Define input parameters for the ply angle of all eight defined plies  Importing model into static structural and applying boundary conditions and force  Solve the model and define output parameter for Eigenvalue amount  Specify design variations in ANSYS Workbench and update all design points

Tutorial 83: Creating Sandwich Composite Plate with Honeycomb Core

3 0 Expert
Honeycomb structures are natural or man-made structures that have the geometry of a honeycomb to allow the minimization of the amount of used material to reach minimal weight and minimal material cost. The geometry of honeycomb structures can vary widely but the common feature of all such structures is an array of hollow cells formed between thin vertical walls. In this tutorial we are going to create sandwich composite plate. First, we will create two composite plates in two different ACP and then we will create honeycomb in mechanical model by using Honeycombcreator extension. Then, we will combine three models into static structural to do stress analysis. At the end we will do eigenvalue simulation. Agenda:  Using two ACP to create two composite plates  Creating Honeycomb by using honeycomb creator  Apply boundary conditions, loads and solve the model

Tutorial 74: Modeling Lug in ACP (complex geometry):

3 0 Expert
Solid model settings control how the solid model is divided into elements in the thickness direction and how drop- and cut-off elements are handled. The level of detail required in the solid model depends on how accurate certain features are to be modeled. This depends on the judgment of the designer. Extrusion guides add more complex possibilities in shaping the model. The cut-off operation is analogous to machining a composite part after curing. In this tutorial we are going to use extrusion guide, cut off element and snap to geometry to create complex geometry. Agenda:  Create complex composite model  Import geometry for cut-off rule  Creating Virtual Geometries  Import geometry for Extrusion-guides feature  Extrude solid composite using Extrusion- guides feature

Tutorial 77: Modelling Composite T-beam in ACP

2 0 Intermediate
An Oriented Selection Set is an Element Set with additional information about the element orientations. The orientation direction of an Element Set is responsible for setting the stacking direction of the associated lay-up. The Reference Direction is responsible for setting the 0 direction of the associated layup. These two directions must be defined while other parameters like Selection Rules and Draping are optional. The laminate is modeled by defining different Oriented Selection Sets for the different regions. The modeling plies are then associated with the OSS and their order defines the stacking sequence of the laminate. The OSS feature allows you to define several offset directions for one element: OSS can overlap and can have different orientations. In this tutorial we are going to model T-Beam by defining various oriented selection sets. This beam is made from three main parts which are: Top and middle surface, Bonding and covering layers. Agenda:  Using multiple oriented selection sets to define a complex composite layup  Tapering of core materials  Using multiple rosettes and different selection methods

2 2 Expert
The progressive damage plot object can display progressive damage results. The overall damage status can be displayed indicating whether no damage, some damage, or complete damage has occurred. The damage variables give an indication of how much the stiffness has reduced for fiber and matrix in tension or compression. The damage variable scale goes from 0 (no damage, 0% stiffness reduction) to the maximum stiffness reduction specified. The highest reduction possible is 1 (complete damage, 100% stiffness reduction Agenda: Defining the engineering properties Defining the damage initiation and damage variable Setup composite lay-up in ACP (Pre) Apply boundary conditions, loads and solve the model Solve Post processing
