Composite contains a comprehensive range of advanced engineering analysis facilities to cater for all types of composite
From simple failure prediction using a number of industry-standard failure
criteria including Tsai-Hill, Hoffman and Tsai-Wu through to
advanced delamination failure modelling, LUSAS Composite
will give reliable results and help shorten your design and analysis times.
as a leader in composites modelling and analysis, LUSAS Composite is
rich in powerful and advanced features to meet your analysis needs
and extend your design capabilities.
Because composite components have
different failure characteristics to non-composite components and
are often a complex combination of materials, they pose unique
The use of traditional modelling techniques for
composites can be prohibitively expensive due to the large number of
elements required. Whilst some analysis systems allow laminate
properties to be integrated together to form an homogeneous material
matrix, such systems can only predict failure with a linear
To model failure correctly, and to assess the residual
strength, nonlinear analysis with LUSAS Composite is
necessary in which the individual laminate behaviour is modelled.
