Composites in the Automotive Industry: Forum and Workshop October

Some of the most significant challenges facing the automotive industry include raw material cost, light-weighting and achieving mass production. These are direct consequences of environmental requirements becoming more rigorous as concern about carbon emissions grows. Moreover, the use of carbon fiber is an important part of the answer to these problems but brings on its own set of issues that need to …


Multi-Scale Simulations With Marc and Digimat

Composite materials of various types (unidirectional composites, short fiber reinforced plastics, nano-composites, ceramics, etc.) exhibit highly nonlinear, anisotropic, strain-rate and temperature dependent properties in mechanical, thermal and electrical fields. They often exhibit enhanced performance with respect to density as compared to traditional structural materials. However, simulating composite structures is complicated, and usually requires a micro-mechanical, …
