Composite Pressure Vessel simulation in ABAQUS

Pressure vessels are made using different methods today, and one of them is filament winding. This package shows the simulation of composite pressure vessels made using the filament winding method. In this training package, three winding methods, planar, geodesic, and isotensoid, have been taught for filament winding pressure vessels. In this tutorial, two general methods also have been presented for simulating filament wound pressure vessels. One uses the Abaqus graphical user interface(GUI), and the other uses the Python script. On the other hand, two criteria, Tsai-Hill and Puck, have been used to model damage in the composite. A UMAT subroutine has been used to use the Puck criterion.

Simulation of composite Puck damage in 3d continuum element in Abaqus (UMAT-USDFLD-VUMAT)

The Puck criterion is an essential damage model for composite materials, considering both fiber and matrix failures simultaneously. It provides a practical way to predict the onset of damage in composites under various loading conditions. This training package is focused on simulating composite PUCK damage in 3D continuum elements using UMAT, VUMAT, and USDFLD subroutines in Abaqus. It covers different types of failure in composites, including fiber failure, matrix cracking, delamination, and interfacial failure, as well as criteria for predicting failure modes in composites that are dependent or not dependent on each other, such as the Tsai-Wu and Tsai-Hill criterion, respectively. Additionally, the package covers composites' most commonly used damage criteria, including the Puck criterion. The package provides step-by-step guidance on simulating composite Puck damage using each of the subroutines mentioned above in Abaqus.  

Composite simulation for experts-Part-3


Pay attention to the syllabus and availability file details. some of the packages are fully available and some of them are partially available. If this is partially available it takes at least two months to be completely available.

If you are a graduate or Ph.D. student, if you are a university professor or an expert engineer in the industry who deals with simulation software, you are definitely familiar with the limitations of this software in defining the material properties, loading or meshing, interaction properties, and etc. You have certainly tried to define the properties of materials based on advanced fracture theories in finite element software and are familiar with their limitations and problems. Now, here is your solution. Start writing subroutines in finite element software and overcome the limitations. With the tutorials in the Golden Package, you will learn how to write 8 subroutines in Abaqus software professionally.
