Use of Finite Element Analysis to Create Robust Composite Designs – Going Beyond First Ply Failure

The paper shows how a structure can be made more robust by the analysis of failure through to ultimate load. Understanding how this failure occurs allows us to make a better assessment of the structures performance in extreme load conditions.

Accurately Simulating Entire Systems in Motion

Simulation has become critical to engineering design for nearly every manufacturing company. Multibody Dynamics makes it possible to simulate the performance of your product to a much higher level of fidelity earlier in the design process. You can evaluate more alternatives faster and deliver a more robust product with higher levels of performance while reducing product development costs. Learn how these benefits are achieved.

Modeling Composites with MSC Nastran Webinar

This webinar will help explore the full range of MSC Nastran composite capabilities. By watching this webinar, you will learn how MSC’s composites technology can help meet your analysis needs and reduce your product cost and design cycle time by doing more analysis and less testing. If you answer yes to any of the questions below, this webinar is for you: Do you use composites in your product design today? What methods are you using to verify the structural integrity of your composite design? Can you predict the first ply failure (FPF) of your composite structure? Do you need to determine the ultimate load-carrying capability of your product by either testing or progressive ply failure (PPF) analysis? Do you account for delamination in your design and want to predict the residual strength of the structure as the initial flaw grows? Do you want to evaluate how well crack arrestment features work in your fail-safe design? Do you want to reduce the weight of your product by finding the optimal combination of ply thicknesses and orientations? Do you tackle manufacturing issues such as draping, curing, and shrinkage?

Physical testing of prototypes is mainly used as a last check before a new design is approved, providing correlation between simulation and the actual results.

MSC Software Professional Services Team Enables Development of Patented, Energy Absorbing Bus Bumper System

The bumper must protect the bus from any damage as a result of 6.5-mph direct impact into a rigid barrier and a corner impact from a common carriage. In addition, the bumper must return to pre-impact shape within 10 minutes of the impact. The primary system for meeting the impact requirements is through energy absorbing bumpers mounted on the front and rear. To meet this requirement, the Reflex bumper was designed to progressively collapse, cushioning the vehicle from a collision. Following impact, the bumpers return to their original shape without permanent damage or degradation in strength.
