Over Designing Fiber Reinforced Plastics

Attend our seminar in Southern California on April 23, 3013 Attend training in Indiana on May 30, 2013 Imagine you have designed a part, only to find out later the predicted maximum stresses are in fact lower. It’s too late to make any design modifications, and now your part is produced for a maximum stress …


Your FEA predictions are 40%-80% off from experiment. Solution: Model your composites as anisotropic, not isotropic.

Attend our seminar in Southern California on April 23, 3013 Attend training in Indiana on May 30, 2013 Question: Consider the plot below of an actual example from Trelleborg. My FEA prediction of my composite part (short fiber reinforced plastic), colored in green, is far from my experimental result, colored in blue. How can I improve …
