  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. Multiscale analysis of multilayer printed circuit board using Mechanics of Structure Genome

    23 Jan 2019

    The structure of Printed Circuit board (PCB) is very complicated because it consists of woven composites and custom defined conducting layers. To improve the reliability of PCB, it is critical to predict the constitutive relations accurately. This study by implementing Mechanics of Structure...

  4. Abaqus plugins for Nonlinear Acoustics

    06 Jul 2017

    This paper introduces generalized tools in the form of plugins for a commonly used commercial finite element package Abaqus/Standard to model the nonlinear acoustic methods for detection of delamination damage in composite laminates. The nonlinear acoustic methods typically involve exciting a...
