  1. iVABS

    19 Nov 2020 | Contributor(s):: Su Tian, Haodong Du, Fei Tao, Wenbin Yu

    iVABS (namely integrated VABS), is a design framework for composite slender structures (also called composite beams) such as helicopter rotor blades, wind turbine blades, high aspect ratio wings, bridges, shafts, etc. This framework bundles PreVABS, VABS, GEBT, Dakota, along with msgpi for...

  2. HyperSizer for Composites: Insanely Fast Laminate Optimization

    31 Mar 2015

    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...

  4. The Integration of Composite Constituent-Level Failure Models During Composite Size Optimization

    25 Nov 2014 | Contributor(s):: Robert N Yancey

    A number of structural optimization methods have been applied over the years to aid in the design process for structural components. The design criteria are often based on stress, strain, or displacement allowables that can be easily calculated with any finite element analysis model. For...
