LS-DYNA Compact: Simulation of fiber-reinforced plastics (3 Parts)

Increasing requirements on stiffness and strength together with the need
to reduce weight, lead to further developments of fiber reinforced
composites within the last decades. Nowadays, those materials are used
for structural relevant components of high-volume production
applications.  Therefore, it is necessary to develop procedures that allow
quantifying the complex load carrying and failure as well as damage
mechanisms of these materials with numerical simulations.

In the provided course series, we will discuss serveral aspects of
modeling short, long and continuous fiber reinforced plastic materials
with LS-DYNA, starting with a general discussion of the most important
keywords, integration rule definition and pre- and postprocessing. The
second course will cover material models commonly used for short and
continuous fiber reinforced composite modeling in LS-DYNA. Focus is put on the
different failure criteria and post-failure handling. The
third course will show possibilities to model delamination with either
cohesive elements or tiebreak contacts in LS-DYNA.
