Composites

Composite simulations add an extra degree of complexity over other simulations.

One can utilize dynamics, advanced non-linear capabilities and thermal, combined with additional factors of ply orientation, fibre/resin properties, draping, curing stresses, degradation fields, progressive failure, and complex failure criteria.

The Ansys Composite Prep/Post module facilitates the generation and subsequent post processing of models. Our expertise includes composite manufacturing processes, thin and thick composite capabilities, material experience, localized attachments and thermal.
