ANSYS’s solution for composites allows efficiently modelling complex composite structures. ANSYS Composite PrepPost facilitates the definition of the material orientation when modelling complex shapes and can be used to evaluate drapability and fibre angle correction.
ANSYS Mechanical allows the analysis of thin and thick composites using shell or 3-D solid elements. Intralaminar and interlaminar failure can be investigated using failure criteria including Tsai-Wu, Hashin, LaRC, Puck 2-Dand 3-D. Failure analysis capabilities include the cohesive zone models (CZM)and the virtual crack closure technique (VCCT) that can be used to analyse debonding, delamination, and crack propagation.
