  1. Constitutive modeling for time- and temperature-dependent behavior of composites

    08 Jan 2020

    Structural integrity, durability, and thermal stability represent critical areas for adequately modeling the behavior of composite materials. Polymeric matrices are prone to have time-dependent behavior very sensitive to changes in temperature that influence the effective properties of the...

  2. MSC.Patran/Nastran-SwiftComp GUI

    01 Apr 2019

    A graphical user interface (GUI) has been developed to integrate SwiftComp into MSC.Patran/Nastran for constitutive modeling and providing the automated conversion of the MSG plate and beam stiffness matrix into MSC.Nastran shell and beam element properties and materials. In order to reduce...

  3. Puck Failure Criteria

    31 Jul 2017

    Composite materials have been established as competitive materials during the last few decades due to their high strength to l ow weight ratio among other advantages and are widely used in many industries. A recent study has found that the industrial usage of composite failure...
