Fiber Weave Representative Volume Element (RVE) Sim App
Abstract: A Sim App concept for a fiber weave representative volume element (RVE) model is presented. By utilizing the parameter-controlled StressCheck Handbook model, equivalent orthotropic lamina (ply) properties can be developed (either by hand or automatically via the StressCheck API) using a heterogeneous elastic material-based homogenization technique.

“Small errors in modeling can lead to substantial errors in joint performance prediction. To alleviate this problem, the CAI used the handbook functionality of ESRD Inc.’s (St. Louis, Mo.) trademarked StressCheck® P-version finite element software to develop reusable models of typical joints.”
