Composite Laminate Modeling Seminar

This note is intended for new engineers interested in modeling composites and experienced engineers who would like to get acquainted with the Femap interface.

The following topics are covered:

  • A little background on the mechanics of composites and how micromechanics can be
  • leveraged to obtain composite material properties
  • 2D composite laminate modeling
  • Defining a material model, layup, property card and material angles
  • Symmetric vs. unsymmetric laminate and why this is important
  • Results post processing
  • 3D composite laminate modeling
  • Defining a material model, layup, property card and ply/stack orientation
  • When is a 3D model preferred over a 2D model
  • Modeling a sandwich composite
  • Methods of modeling a sandwich composite
  • 3D vs. 2D sandwich composite models and their pros and cons
  • Failure modeling of a 2D composite laminate
  • Defining a laminate failure model
  • Post processing laminate and lamina failure indices
