Analysis of Slender Structures Using Mechanics of Structure Genome and Open Source Codes
18 Apr 2016
This is the Master thesis from Xin Liu in Prof Yu’s research group. In this thesis, the Mechanics of Structure Genome (MSG) has be used to provide an alternative way to model composite beam-like structures. Basic concept of MSG is introduced as well as the idea of how to carry out...

HyperSizer for Composites: Insanely Fast Laminate Optimization
31 Mar 2015 | Tool Information
95% of users, without user manual, and without instruction, will be able to import their FEM and produce optimum composites laminates that satisfy all analyses to all load cases within the first 10 minutes. Your automatically updated model will have minimum weight and fully producible laminates...
Structure Genome: Fill the Gap between Materials Genome and Structural Analysis
29 Nov 2014 | Publications
A new concept, Structure Genome (SG), is proposed to fill the gap between materials genome and structural analysis. SG acts as the basic building block of the structure connecting materials to structures and the mechanics of SG governs the necessary information to link materials genome and...
Variational Asymptotic Modeling of Composite Dimensionally Reducible Structures
09 Nov 2014 | Publications
This is Prof. Yu's PhD dissertation. In this disseration, the variational asymptotic method has be used to provide a systematic, holistic, and rigorous approach to construct efficient yet accurate models for composite beams, plates, and shells.
