Welcome to Prof. Yu's research group in the cloud! If you are interested in Dr. Yu's research or have questions regarding the software codes developed by him and his co-workers, you are welcome to join this group by Requesting Membership. You can participate in discussions, access resources, network with other members who share similar technical interests.
Vision: Simulation-based design, manufacturing, and certification of composite structures and materials.
Mission: To advance predictive capabilities for composite structures and materials and train students with analysis fundamentals and job-ready skills.
Truth: we pursue truth because truth can set us free.
Unity: we seek unity to systematically handle diversities.
Balance: we strike for balance between practicality and rigor.
Humble boldness: we embrace humble boldness to learn from others and remain true to scholarship.
SwiftComp: a general-purpose, multiscale constitutive modeling code for heterogeneous materials and structures. If you want to handle textile composites, please use TexGen4SC; if you are an ANSYS user, please use ANSYS-SwiftComp GUI; if you are an ABAQUS user, please use ABAQUS-SwiftComp GUI.
VABS: a general-purpose cross-sectional analysis for composite beams such as helicopter rotor blades and wind turbine blades. A preprocessor, PreVABS, is developed for preparing VABS input files. If you are an ABAQUS user, you can also use ABAQUS-VABS GUI.
