  1. Homogenization with Finite Size

    Forum › defaultsection › cdmhuborg

    Hello all,  I am having a problem with homogenization of a squarepack (block with a hole) using SwiftComp ANSYS Workbench GUI. I tried both symmetrical mesh and default quadratic mesh...


  2. Predict elastic properties of plain woven composites

    Problem Description The MSG solid model is used to predict the effective properties of a plain weave composite using a two-step approach. This problem is the first example in the paper “Liu,...


  3. SwiftComp Homogenization Problem

    Forum › defaultsection › swiftcompmechanicsofstructuregenomeandrelateddiscussions-category

    Hi all, When I type "SwiftComp micro1D.sc 3D H" in the commandline window, as stated in Readme.txt which is in the installation folder, it reports successful run and I can...


  4. Three-dimensional thermoelastic properties of general composite laminates

    06 Dec 2018 | Contributor(s):: Orzuri Rique, Johnathan Goodsell, Wenbin Yu, Byron Pipes

    This paper presents a hybrid rule of mixtures for calculating the complete set of effective three-dimensional thermoelastic properties of composite laminate when it is approximated as an equivalent, homogeneous, anisotropic solid. The laminate can be made of generally anisotropic layers with...

  5. Is it possible to homogenize aperiodic/partially periodic structures using 3D FEA?

    Closed | Responses: 1

    Dear sir, 
    apart from MSG? is there any alternate way to predict effective properties using 3D FEA  for aperiodic/ partially structures such as honeycomb core, circular fiber...


  6. Two-step homogenization of textile composites using mechanics of structure genome

    04 Apr 2017 | Contributor(s):: Xin Liu, Khizar Rouf, Bo Peng, Wenbin Yu

    Mechanics of structure genome is extended to provide a novel two-step homogenization approach to predicting the effective properties of textile composites. The first homogenization step (microhomogenization) deals with determining the effective properties of tows (yarns) from fiber and matrix...

  7. Tet and Hex element type results variation

    Closed | Responses: 2

    Dear all,

    I'm trying to use ABAQUS-Swiftcomp GUI to obtain homogenised RVE properties. It is my first use, and I'm happy with the ABAQUS interface and processing time, in...
