The Future of Modeling in Composites Molding Processes
June 9-10, 2004
The development and implementation of a
comprehensive composites design environment
that generates the geometric configuration,
component materials, and processing
schedule for industrial products. Design
tool to be based on validated simulations,
and address uncertainty in the product’s
use, its processing, and models used to
assess each, and provide desirable
performance over its entire life cycle.
Composite Design Attributes
Integrated product and process design for short fiber reinforced polymer composites
IMSL, Excel, Matlab, IMSL, Minpack, etc….
Reliability-Based Design, etc…
methods developed for numerous manufacturing
2. Identify “defects” or “features” of interest for modeling and design - porosity - texture - interface imperfections - fiber clustering - fiber misalignment
Multi-scale modeling and topology optimization
