  • Bolted connections
    Use the Bolted Connection dialog box and its 3D visualization tool to build and size bolted joints for multiple laminates. Understand failure mode and safety margins for the bolted connection. This helps you size laminates and determine bolt configurations, and helps eliminate uncertainty during conceptual design. Watch Video

  • Fabric Builder
    Create and analyze various composite fabrics with the Fabric Builder. Choose from different fabric types, weave orientations, and customizable constituent materials. The tool determines fabric thickness and uses micromechanics and selected failure criteria to calculate the resulting fabric strengths. Once you create a fabric, save it in the material database. Watch Video

  • Spring-in calculator for laminates
    Calculate the spring-in or change in geometry to your laminate due to temperature and moisture changes. Predict laminate bending or warpage due to curing. Watch Video

  • Material export to FEA
    After building a laminate, you can export it to your FEA package for further use. Select from Abaqus, ANSYS, NASTRAN, or Simulation Mechanical material file formats. Watch Video

  • Customizable material library
    Use an extensive, customizable database of laminates, fibers, resins, and core materials to build your sandwich panel. Add or create new materials with the New Item feature. Employ micromechanics to determine properties of your ply, or Classical Laminate Theory to calculate the properties of your laminate. Watch Video

  • Laminate analysis toolset
    The Laminate module includes 9 composite laminate analysis features to help you determine properties and performance. You can calculate and export laminate properties to finite element codes. Use a variety of top failure theories to plot your design spaces and perform failure analysis using First Ply Failure or Progressive Failure. Watch Video

  • Simple structure simulation
    Conduct structural analysis without FEA to quickly find more accurate solutions for deformation, bending, vibration, and compressive stability of laminate plates, sandwich panels, tubes, beams, and pressure vessels. Once you define a laminate, simply specify the structure geometry, select from a menu of loading and boundary conditions, and apply your load to determine the laminate response. Watch Video

  • Composite design utilities
    From building a composite fabric to optimizing your laminate, the Utilities module provides helpful tools for composite engineering. Watch Video

  • Composite engineering reporting
    Create accurate, professional reports of your design and analysis results. Export results to PDF, Microsoft Word, or HTML file formats. Watch Video
