In this webinar, we will show how to model layered composite structures. Common examples of composite materials include fiber-reinforced plastic, laminated plates, and sandwich panels, all of which are widely used in the manufacturing of aircraft and spacecraft components, wind turbine blades, and other structures.

We will discuss two approaches that accurately model composite shells: layerwise theory and equivalent single layer theory. In addition to standard structural analyses (such as stationary, eigenfrequency, transient, and frequency domain), the presentation will go over micromechanical, first-ply failure, delamination, and linear buckling analyses. We will also demonstrate how to include various physical phenomena, such as heat transfer, electromagnetics, acoustics, and fluid flow, in a composite laminate model. Various nonlinear materials models e.g. hyperelasticity, plasticity as well as piezoelectricity will be demonstrated. A live demo in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software will show simulation results for the through-thickness and ply-wise stress distribution in the composite laminate. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.
