Woven Composites design | ANSYS Tutorial

✍️ In this tutorial we are going to learn about ANSYS Material Designer environment and its abilities. We will see how to design unidirectional and woven composites in ANSYS Material Designer and extract their homogenized material properties.

Composite materials consist of two or more layered or otherwise integrated materials to create a new material with different material properties. These materials combine the best properties of their component materials, resulting in a product that is both light and strong.

Modeling woven composites in finite element analysis often involves performing experimental testing to determine the exact material properties, which can be costly and time consuming. ANSYS Material Designer allows you to create composite materials for simulation using base materials of known material properties. By calculating material properties of new composite materials, Material Designer provides a necessary tool in the design and manufacture of composite products.

Material Designer can also be used to generate homogenized materials for lattice structures. This allows you to simulate the performance of parts consisting of lattice structures from additive manufacturing. Parameterization within Material Designer allows for the optimization of lattice structures.

As Paul Allen said, “my quest to expand access to space began more than a decade ago, when I teamed up with Burt Rutan at Scaled Composites to build Space Ship One. This innovative air-launched vehicle was the world’s first private spacecraft to carry an astronaut into sub-orbital space.”
