Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE

Course Objective

Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE is an add-on product that complements and extends the powerful ply modeling features in Abaqus/CAE by providing proven fiber simulation capabilities and advanced model building—all seamlessly integrated within Abaqus/CAE.

Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE allows you to model composite structures in Abaqus/CAE in a way that reflects the composite's manufacturing processes. By attending this two-day course, you will learn how to use Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE to account for accurate fiber angles and ply thicknesses in Abaqus simulations to achieve unprecedented accuracy. You will be able to review and quickly modify your composites models to iteratively improve your designs. You can use your composites model to generate manufacturing data thereby ensuring that the analyzed model closely corresponds to the real structure.

Who should attend

This is an advanced seminar for users who are already familiar with the native Abaqus/CAE composites modeling functionality. Therefore, the Analysis of Composite Materials with Abaqus seminar is recommended as a prerequisite. At the very least, attendees should be familiar with the Abaqus/CAE composite layup functionality. Attendees should also be comfortable postprocessing the results of composites simulations using Abaqus/CAE. An understanding of how composites are manufactured is also helpful.
