Research


Composites Manufacturing Simulation & Validation

  • Develop a comprehensive set of simulation tools that connect composites from their birth in manufacturing to their lifetime prediction.
  • Advance the certification of composite products by analysis validated by experiments and teach the use of these tools to the current and future generations of engineers.
  • Work with industry, academia, and government to put these tools in the hands of engineers.
 

Composites Additive Manufacturing

  • Predict and measure the anisotropic deformation that occurs in printed elements.
  • Include a description of anisotropic element shape change during deposition.
  • Anticipate performance of the printed element.

Mechanics of Structure Genome

  • Unify the length scales of structural mechanics and micromechanics.
  • Enable modeling of composites with the same accuracy and ease as metals.
  • Interface seamlessly with conventional FEA codes for high-fidelity composites modeling.
  • Simulate in the cloud using SwiftComp deployed on cdmHUB.

cdmHUB Online Composites Community

  • The Composites Design and Manufacturing HUB (cdmHUB).
  • Convene the composites community to advance certification by analysis.
  • The cdmHUB supports certification by analysis through developing and disseminating simulation best practices and through education and evaluation of composites simulation tools.
