If you are a researcher, student, university professor, or Engineer in the company in the field of composite materials, this training package in simulating these materials in Abaqus software is the best selection.
In this training package, everything you need to simulate these materials is completely available from simple to advanced. It includes modeling these materials in Abaqus to fatigue and damage of composite materials. Note that composite materials in some cases require subroutine writing due to their complex behavior for simulation in Abaqus software. An example of a subroutine requirement in these materials is to study the fatigue of composite materials in the Abaqus, the implementation of damage initiation, and the progressive damage in three-dimensional elements.
You can see the syllabus and details of this workshop below or the drop-down menu on the right side of this product page.
In this package, you can learn how to analyze damage in woven composite materials using the subroutine. Firstly, you will learn the theory of this damage model in the presentation. Then, the flowchart of this subroutine is described box by box. In the next step, you can learn how to write the subroutine line by line. Finally, the subroutine is implemented in basic and advanced examples.
The fatigue analysis of a beam subjected to complicated loads in the explicit solver for shell element was simulated using a VUMAT subroutine for fatigue analysis in unidirectional composites based on Shokrieh fatigue theory.
