A Purdue University Center of Excellence
The CMSC is a leader in the education and training of a new generation of engineers
A Collaboration of the College of Engineering and the Purdue Polytechnic Institute
Thermwood and Purdue Successfully Compression Mold Parts Using Printed Tooling
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.
