ANSYS Composite PrepPost


Introduction to ANSYS Mechanical (Workbench)


ANSYS Composites PrepPost is a two-day ANSYS Training course that will teach students background on composites and cover how to analyze composites with ANSYS Composite PrepPost. The training will cover simulations of simple composite structures and real-world composite applications. Every topic is reinforced by hands-on workshop examples.

Topics Include:

Composites Overview

  • Composite Materials and Fabrics
  • Manufacturing Methods
  • Raw Materials
  • Numerical Simulation of Composites
  • Measuring Ply Properties
  • Failure Indicator

Composites in ANSYS Workbench

  • How to Create Simple Composite Layups in ANSYS Workbench
  • How to Evaluate a Composite Design within ANSYS Workbench

Composite Simulation with ANSYS Composite PrepPost

  • ANSYS Composite PrepPost Introduction
  • Rosettes - How to Define Composite Fiber Directions
  • Oriented Element Sets as Basis for the Composite Layup
  • Rules and Edge Sets
  • Draping in ANSYS Composite PrepPost
  • The Solid Model Process in ANSYS Workbench
  • Failure Criteria
