New Features for Modeling Composite Materials in COMSOL® 5.4

Duration: 40:16

In this archived webinar, learn how to model layered composite structures using the Composite Materials Module, which is available as an add-on product to the Structural Mechanics Module and the COMSOL Multiphysics® software as of version 5.4. We discuss topics like using the layerwise and equivalent single layer theories to accurately model composite shells; performing standard structural analyses as well as micromechanical, first-ply failure, and linear buckling analyses; and including various physical phenomena in a composite laminate model. In addition, we examine the resulting through-thickness and ply-wise stress distribution for the composite laminate simulation.
