This is the master thesis from Banghua Zhao advised by Prof. Yu. In this thesis, mechanics of structure genome (MSG) has been used to analyze composite plates. A simple graphic user interface (GUI) named ANSYS-SwiftComp GUI has been developed based on ANSYS platform as a user-friendly GUI to improve the user friendliness of MSG. The numerical cases show that the MSG approach is not only accurate but also efficient in comparison to the ANSYS 3D approach and the ANSYS Composite PrepPost (ACP) approach.
