For the design of components and processes, simulation based on finite element analyses is widely used. Therefore, numerous commercial software exist to support engineers. Especially when using composite materials the simulation offers opportunities for optimization of components and manufacturing processes. Within this laboratory, students will be introduced to common software tools and simulation techniques to earn basic knowledge of the methodology.
- deformation and stress analyzes
- modelling of anisotropic properties and laminates
- simulation of manufacturing processes
- optimization methods
