What is Composites Component Simulation?
Analysis of Complex Composite Parts

Quickly understand complex component responses with analysis of composite parts using SOLIDWORKS Simulation. You can then optimise material selection and the number and orientation of the composite ply layup to ensure product quality, performance, and factor of safety (FoS).

Tightly integrated with SOLIDWORKS CAD, analysis of composite parts using SOLIDWORKS Simulation can be a regular part of your design process, reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework and delays, and saving time and development costs.

Easily analyse symmetrical and unsymmetrical composite layups, as well as composite sandwiches, with SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Each layer can be defined by a unique set of material properties and orientation, giving the designer maximum control to find the optimum layup and material for maximum product performance.

The failure criterion for composite materials is very different than for metals. Composite materials do not yield; rather, the fibers delaminate and fracture. SOLIDWORKS Simulation reports the FoS against failure according to the Tsai-Wu and Tsai-Hill failure indexes.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation uses finite element analysis (FEA) methods to discretise composite components into shell elements and uses stress analysis to determine the response of parts and assemblies due to the effect of:
  • Forces
  • Pressures
  • Accelerations
  • Temperatures
  • Contact between components
  • Fiber delamination
