In this blog post, we will be showing an analysis of a bolted joint. The joint comprises of two flat plates that are made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer material (CFRP). Both plates have the same 8 ply layup (symmetric), and have been modelled with stacked continuum shell elements. Ply failure modelling has been considered in terms of Hashin failure criterion damage initiation and fracture energy damage evolution.
Over 5 weeks in a 2 hour session each week, from the 8th of May till 5th of June, Simuleon will hold an Online Training with live broadcasting. The training is called "Abaqus for Composites".
This FREE event on the 28th of February at our office in Den Bosch, NETHERLANDS, is meant for engineers who have some experience of Composites or FEA and would like to look at what is possible with simulation of composites performed by Abaqus FEA. The workshop is also suitable for engineers where ultimate structural performance is a critical product characteristic in their field. For example in areas of composite engineering such as marine, offshore, renewable energy, automotive, sports equipment and medical sciences.Structural Analysis - Composite behaviour.
