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

Abstract

The history of fibre reinforced composite product development has shown an evolution from the classical laminate analysis approach through to modern techniques. This paper shows how finite elements can be used to create composite structures which perform better and provide enhanced safety in critical applications. The paper shows how a structure can be made… (More)
