Composites Design and Manufacturing
Convene the composites community to advance certification by analysis by increasing the number and best practice use of simulation tools by an order of magnitude through education and evaluation of existing and emerging simulation tools.
Advance the certification of composite products by analysis validated by experiments.
Educate the current and future generations of engineers in the use of composite analysis tools.
Evaluate composites simulation tools to determine functionality, compatibility and maturity.
The Micromechanics Simulation Challenge has been launched to establish best practices for the use of composite simulation tools for homogenization and dehomogenization.
On October 28, 2014 at the JEC AMERICAS Conference located in Boston the Composites Design and Manufacturing Hub (cdmHUB) hosted by Dr. Byron Pipes of Purdue University was presented the JEC Innovation Award for academic achievement. Selection criteria for this award includes technical excellence, selection of partners, market potential, and originality.

Join the Community
The Composites Design and Manufacturing HUB (cdmHUB) is a collaborative web interface platform designed to enhance and build synergies among the composite community by enabling users to interact 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The platform was developed to host the simulation tools needed to: advance composite materials design, certify product integrity, simulation manufacturing solutions, and accelerate the talent-base of composite materials developers and users. The cdmHUB will showcase emerging simulation tools, evaluate existing and emerging simulation tools and host simulation challenges to educate and unify the composites community.
