We all love content that offers a lot of benefits and information in a time-saving manner and is always to the point. Also, some people struggle in the composite material analysis topic as many tools that help model and simulate the behavior of composite materials are having a steep learning curve.
Digimat is a software that is used to predict local composite material behavior, and optimize safety factor & composite materials weight.
In this course, we will learn how to model a sandwich-structured composite in Digimat-HC tool in 5-steps :
1-Creating and Choosing Core Material
2-Creating Skin Layers
3-Composing the sandwich material panel structure
4-Three-Point Bending Test Setup
5-Viewing Simulation and Constructing Plots
After learning how to model a sandwich panel in Digimat-HC, we will have 2 worked examples so we can put things together.
Learning how to use the software efficiently will save your time, and offer quick-yet accurate predictions for local composite behavior. Doing so will also help improve production costs linked to time-wasting and multiple testing.
1- It's recommended that you apply what you learn step-by-step after finishing each lecture. And then model an already validated structure to measure model accuracy, and getting thoughts about improving your model.
2- Read the EKT ( Extra Knowledge Text ) containing information that might help you understand more about the models' parameters selection, and entry
