14 Nov 2015 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Wenbin Yu
This article provides a brief introduction to micromechanics using linear elastic materials as an example. The fundamental micromechanics concepts including homogenization and dehomogenization, representative volume element (RVE), unit cell, average stress and strain theories, effective...
Assessing VABS against ABAQUS Beam Section Generate
27 May 2015 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Su Tian, Wenbin Yu
We did a case study for a composite beam using VABS and ABAQUS beam section generate capability and compared with detailed 3D FEA analysis. The conclusion is that VABS can reproduce the detailed 3D FEA analysis at an efficiency much faster than ABAQUS beam capability. The accuracy of ABAQUS beam...
