Smart Sim Apps Demo: Laminated Composite Joint Analysis
Abstract: Demonstration of a Smart Sim App via CAE Handbook. A parametric ply-by-ply laminated composite joint with a thru-delamination is analyzed for energy release rates. No FEA experience required to change the joint inputs, or extract energy release rates for the delamination.

“Accurate and reliable stresses and Stress Intensity Factors are required for determination of static and residual strength and for crack growth analyses in analysis tools such as AFGROW. For some geometries, industry solutions are either insufficient or nonexistent. The geometry, applied forces, and crack shapes and dimensions must be modeled reasonably well to obtain useful engineering data. The p-version finite element software StressCheck® (ESRD, Inc., St. Louis, Missouri, USA) is used to demonstrate how accurate finite element solutions can lead to good quality engineering analysis.”
