MCQ is a material modeling software providing engineers with advanced analytic tools to characterize and qualify material properties as input for finite element analysis. Starting with results of standard ASTM tests, fiber volume, density, resin content and void volume, MCQ reverse engineers in-situ constituent properties of fibers and matrix while taking into consideration manufacturing anomalies, effect of defects, complex architectures, effect of environment and scatter. Next MCQ reconstitutes the laminate (test coupon) and calibrates effective properties against test, utilizing standard and user defined failure criteria. In this manner, MCQ discerns between as-designed, as-built, and as-is material states to predict other design related outcomes.
GENOA is a durability & damage tolerance, progressive fa
