Introduction to ANSYS Composite PrepPost

Description and Objectives

Course Description
The students learn about composite backgrounds and how to analyze composites with ANSYS Composite PrepPost. The training will cover simulations of simple composite structures and real world composite applications. The following topics will be covered in the course:

  • Composites Overview
    • Composite Materials and Fabrics
    • Manufacturing Methods
    • Raw Materials
    • Numerical Simulation of Composites
    • Measuring Ply Properties
    • Failure Indicator
  • Composites in ANSYS Workbench
    • How to Create Simple Composite Layups in ANSYS Workbench
    • How to Evaluate a Composite Design within ANSYS Workbench
  • Composite Simulation with ANSYS Composite PrepPost
    • ANSYS Composite PrepPost Introduction
    • Rosettes - How to Define Composite Fiber Directions
    • Oriented Element Sets as Basis for the Composite Layup
    • Rules and Edge Sets
    • Draping in ANSYS Composite PrepPost
    • The Solid Model Process in ANSYS Workbench
    • Failure Criteria

Every topic of the training is followed by hands-on workshops to help learn the concepts covered in the previous lecture.
